You’re in for a Treat at PB&J

When you hear “PB&J,” you probably think of the lunchbox classic: two slices of bread—with the crusts cut off if you’re lucky—smothered with sticky peanut butter and gooey, sweet jelly. Thanks to Chicago’s newest spot, those three letters and an ampersand are getting a whole new meaning. 

PB&J focuses on three unexpected aspects of this lively stop: pizza, beer, and jukebox. Stop by for a weekly special, creative pie (loaded baked potato or poutine pizza, anyone?), or classic burger. Customers have already flooded their Yelp page with lengthy, enthusiastic reviews. 

All that being said, if you were disappointed to learn that their PB&J namesake isn’t the traditional sandwich, you’re in luck. Alongside flights and slices, you’ll find their (not so) secret PB&J menu. Have a shareable sandwich with their whole loaf PB&J, which serves eight, or try their creative options, like the “Elvis style” open-faced peanut butter and banana sandwich or the “not your mama’s” PB&J, with almond butter, berry, compote, and maple-bourbon honey. Still hungry? Their make your own PB&J options include your choice of breads, spreads, jelly, and garnish.
