found the Family Pie Shop through Jane and Michael Stern's
book "Road Food." Drove past it twice and
missed it. Had to stop and ask. Still almost
missed it. It's set back among a couple of
houses. If it wasn't for the "OPEN" sign,
I would have assumed it was closed. But open it was.
Family Pie Shop is definitely a family operation and
nowadays, at least, is mostly if not totally
take-out. Part of the family was hanging out in what
long ago might have been the dining room.
were three choices of pies - lemon, chocolate and fried
apple. I went for the chocolate. I expected a
slice but what I got for my $2.00 was a good sized
individual pie. Good tasting, too. Friendly
too. I'm a comin' back.
