“Best Fish Tacos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

My girlfriend took me here for the fish tacos and they were sooooooo good! Slathered with coleslaw, cilantro, and some yummy sauce, they were the best I've had in a very long time. The place looks just like any old pub with a chill ambiance, several good beers on tap, and friendly staff.

We also ordered a Reuben, some wings, and a burger, all of which were out shined by the tacos. If I lived in Chico, this would probably be one of my weekly go-to's.

“There is love in that kitchen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

I have been to the Banshee several times and the food is always outstanding. The chefs take pride in the food they produce in their kitchen. I've had to leave a few times because I couldn't find a table or place at the bar but I'll always come back. The steak and onion quesadilla, mac and cheese and burgers are my favorite. My friend loves the pastrami bomb!

“fabulous inventive food in a crowded pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

The food never disappoints here. Everything I've tried is phenomenal. The stand outs to me are the macaroni and cheese with ham, the pulled pork sandwich, and the goat cheese veggie quesadilla. The only thing lacking for me is the seating situation. I realize that this is a small pub, but the past 2 times I've been in I've had to stand up and eat because there was no seating. I did notice that they've added seating in the back which is great. I suggest coming in between meal hours. The food is sooo worth it.
