8 Places to Eat Banana Pudding Right Now

View as Map

In honor of Greasy Spoons Week, a tribute to a sweeter meat-and-three staple, banana pudding. Eater readers weighed in on which Lowcountry eateries, from diners to night-out destinations, have the best takes on the much-loved Southern dessert. They range from the traditional (with Nilla wafers) to the deep-fried to the upscale, but all have creamy, banana goodness at the center.

The Glass Onion's Sarah O'Kelley serves up a "pretty classic" take on Ridiculously Good Banana Pudding, including Nilla wafers (but also making sure the fruit isn't too brown). It's topped with whipped cream and chocolate sauce for good measure.

2. Page's Okra Grill

302 Coleman Blvd
Mt Pleasant, SC 29464
(843) 881-3333
Known for their breakfast, fried fare and old-school desserts, Page's Okra Grill on Coleman Boulevard doles out the creamy stuff in a classic parfait glass, finished with a Nilla wafer and a bit of whipped cream. An Eater reader deemed it "roll your eyes to Nirvana good."

82 Queen St
Charleston, SC 29401
(843) 723-7591

At this downtown restaurant, the pudding is served in a jar, flanked by caramelized bananas. Perhaps one of the fancier takes on the old-school dessert.

4. Home Team BBQ

2209 Middle St
Sullivan's Island, SC 29482
(843) 883-3131
Visit Website
Recently, the ribs at Home Team have topped numerous "best" lists. The banana pudding, however, also has a loyal following. There's really nothing better after heaps of barbecue.

5. Hubee D's Tenders & Wings

Copy Link
975 Savannah Hwy
Charleston, SC USA
(843) 556-0330
More than a couple Eater readers recommended the fried banana pudding at this fast food chainlet. The bananas are fried and served next to a pool of the pudding, and it's then drizzled with chocolate and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Perhaps also relevant right now are their banana pudding pops.

6. Peninsula Grill

112 N Market St
Charleston, SC 29401
(843) 723-0700

Upscale Peninsula Grill is very, very famous for their coconut cake, but there are plenty of raves for their chocolate-enrobed banana pudding panna cotta.

7. Jestine's Kitchen

251 Meeting St
Charleston, SC 29401
(843) 722-7224
There are long, long lines and oodles of tourists at Jestine's, but some swear by their meringue-topped custard.

8. JB's Smokeshack

3406 Maybank Hwy
Johns Island, SC 29455
(843) 557-0426

At lunch, $9 will get you a ticket to the buffet line at JB's, where banana pudding is one of their daily desserts. So, yeah, here's the option if you need an unlimited hit of the stuff.
