Best Peanut Butter Dishes in Houston

It's peanut butter jelly time! We won't even start the conversation about indulging our childish fancies because there's nothing juvenile about peanut butter. It pairs perfectly with everything from chocolate to hand-formed beef patties (yep, it's true). So seize a spoon and duck into the pantry or try one of these great peanut butter dishes in restaurants across Houston. (Photo: Flickr/Dano)

Foods with Peanut Butter in Houston

CoCo's Crepes and Coffee

218 Gray St, Houston, TX 77002

We have the sneaking suspicion that Youssef Nafaa, proprietor of Coco's, Mia Bella and Saffron, is a peanut butter fiend himself. Only a true enthusiast could have come up with the Coco's Classic, a peanut butter, jelly and banana stuffed crepe or the Belly Buster smoothie, made with chocolate gelato, peanut butter, bananas and peaches.

Hubcap Grill

1111 Prairie St, Houston, TX 77002

Pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable to most of humanity, the Hubcap Grill uses peanut butter as a condiment on its Sticky Burger. But fans swear by it, especially with the addition of bacon.

Empire Cafe

1732 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77098

Couples who eat peanut butter together stay together. A single slice of cake at Empire is big enough for two, so be sure to share a moist, decadent serving of chocolate peanut butter. Take a few deliciously chewy peanut butter cookies to go for an at-home jelly sandwich.

The Raven Grill

1916 Bissonnet St, Houston, TX 77005

The draw of this West U. neighborhood spot is the home-style menu items. Top off a T-bone or grilled trout dinner with a slice of peanut butter pie with a thick Oreo crust.

Amy's Ice Creams & Coffees

3816 Farnham St, Houston, TX 77098

Peanut butter, peanut butter banana, peanut butter and jelly and peanut butter honey sandwich are all rotating flavors in this Austin import's case of kooky ice creams. If those flavors aren't available on the day you're experiencing a craving, try a scoop of Mexican Vanilla plush with peanut butter cups.
