Where to Find the Best Milkshakes in Houston
The word "milkshake" was first used in print in 1885, and at the time, it was an alcoholic whiskey drink.
By the early 1900s, milkshakes were made as we know them today, with ice cream and syrup.
They became popular at malt shops across the country, and Houston residents can enjoy some of the best milkshakes in town at the following restaurants:
The Avalon Diner is a mom-and-pop restaurant that opened in 1938. It was tucked away in the back of the Avalon Drug Store, and today there are a few locations throughout the city. The casual dining area is where strangers become friends, and milkshake flavors include pineapple, mocha, and butterscotch.
Katz's is a New York-style deli that first opened more than thirty years ago in Austin. It wasn't long before the lines were so long that it started staying open 24 hours. That's how the motto "Katz's Never Kloses" was born, and today, Houston residents can find the deli in the Montrose neighborhood. It offers a casual atmosphere where guests can enjoy the famous cheesecake shake that is a full slice of cheesecake blended with chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla ice cream.
Potbelly Sandwich Shop
It was in 1977 when Peter Hastings and his wife decided to serve sandwiches inside their antique store. Eventually, it became known as a lunchtime getaway and lines stretched out the door. Twenty-one years later, they sold the business, and the new owner opened Potbelly locations across the country. All offer a laid-back environment and shake flavors such as banana, Oreo, and mixed berry. They're served with two miniature shortbread cookies around the straw that are baked in-house.
These are just a few of the restaurants near Alexan Enclave that serve delicious shakes. If you are looking for a place to call home, please contact us to schedule a tour.
