East Texas Has Three of the Top Spots for Mouth-Watering Pie

Who makes the most scrumptious pies, besides your Grandma? We’ve got three of the best pie restaurants right here in East Texas, and the other locations across Texas might be worthy of a place on your summer road trip list.  

Driving by, they might look a little like holes in the wall, but these ordinary-looking places can crank out some tempting desserts. came up with the “18 Places In Texas Where You Can Get The Most Mouth Watering Pie,” and they probably just stopped at 18 to leave room for your grandma’s awesome pecan.  My granny in Nebraska made me fat on pecan, apple, and butterscotch meringue as a kid, and I loved every minute of it. It wasn’t her fault I helped myself to a slice of each every time.

Here are some of the best pies in Texas:

Florida’s Kitchen in Livingston.  They’re a barbecue joint that hopes you leave a little room for dessert after the sausage and greens.  Florida’s Kitchen ranked #14, and they make the highlight reel with a huge slice of Chocolate Meringue, drizzled with chocolate syrup.  Forget the barbecue and go straight for the pie.

The Shed Cafe in Edom.  Ever catch yourself staring out the window, thinking about peanut butter and chocolate?  The Shed has a Reese’s Dream pie that layers up the two and puts whipped cream on top and that’s one of the reasons they’re at #11.  Oh, and the buttermilk pie is supposed to be really good.  That’s one you might not want to try at home, and leave it to these experts.

Sue’s Roost in Eustace.  If you’re gonna have pie, you might as well fry it. The fried coconut pie with ice cream on top looks like an East Texas masterpiece, and puts Sue’s on the list at # 10.  And Sue’s Roost is not open for dinner, so you’ve gotta go for breakfast or lunch, and then you’ve got the whole day to burn off the sugar.

If you’re curious, says the Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls serves up the best, most mouth-watering pies in Texas.  They’re #1.  Next to your grandma, of course.

Pie-making has become sort of a lost art since it can take awhile to master, but the places that do it well become elevated to a whole new level of greatness. Overselling?  I don’t think so. It’s pie we’re talking about, and we live in Texas. This sounds like a Memorial Day weekend road trip waiting to happen.
