With a giant astronaut reaching for a PB&J, it's hard to miss the Peanut Butter and Jelly Deli in West Allis.
"We got over a hundred jams and jellies, and with all of our nut butter and bread there are tens of thousands of combinations," says Mike Hottinger, owner of Peanut Butter and Jelly Deli.
Sure it's a simple concept, but with endless toppings, it's almost impossible for you not to find something you'll enjoy eating at this deli.

"A lot of people say, 'oh I can make a PB&J,' but not the way we make it," says Mike.
Their menu features both Mike's creations and iconic versions of a PB&J, like "The King".
"That's the one that Elvis made famous. That has natural peanut butter and honey. Most people get it with bacon, and it's grilled as well," says Mike.
Making everything from scratch, wholesales to grocery stores helped save Mike's business during the pandemic. But the community did not disappoint either.
"One of our most loyal customers lives in Green Bay. She and her husband drove all down just to take two sandwiches away and that felt good," says Mike.
Now re-opened to the public Tuesday through Sunday, Peanut Butter and Jelly Deli is ready to make you fall in love with this classic all over again.
"We're here every day and we know our customers and they know us. I think there's a different type of connection for them as well as for us too, so we enjoy it," says Mike.
Ending on a fun note, if you are interested in seeing how many PB&Js you can eat, mark your calendar for August 15th. Mike will be hosting the first annual Jampionship and you can check outtheir websiteor Facebook for more information.
