Does anyone make a better spicy creamed spinach than Stubbs?

Stubb's gets blasted for mediocre BBQ, but dammit that serrano spinach is great, and to be fair the smoked chicken's always moist, well seasoned and delicious, as can be the pork offerings (pulled, ribs, yada).

Does anyone make a better creamed spinach in town that provides any kind of heat kick?

    Hill's Cafe had a killer version (with bacon) on their original menu circa 2001. It was removed during a menu revamp a few months later and is much missed by at least two people.

      I think Hoover's has a jalapeno creamed spinach side. i haven't had it in years, so i don't remember how good or spicy it is.

        Fleming's cream spinach is mt fav. Not spicy but dang good.

          I love the spinach at Chola, not really that spicy but very good.

            totally agree - my favorite saag paneer in austin for sure, maybe anywhere.

              Ya know the spinach at Masala Wok is totally serviceable in a pinch.

                I discovered that place just last week after years of passing it over in my anti-chain snobbery and had the chicken lollipops for a snack - just delicious. I'll go back and check out the spinach and hear good things about the chicken tikka masala.

                  They have something on their menu listed as wrap but is really like a sandwich made with Naan, out of sight. I really liked it and found it fulling.
