Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pies in Red Hook

Has anyone tried these? Are they worth all the press they receive? I'm thinking about trying one for Thanksgiving.

I'm especially intrigued by the Swingles (chocolate-coated frozen tart on a stick).

  1. These things are good.
    And half the fun is going to Red Hook to buy them.

      FYI, you can get them at some retail outlets:

      I live 2 neighborhoods away, but even I find it too much trouble to get to the factory. I get mine at Los Paisanos.

    2. im not a huge key lime pie fan but i consistently order it for dessert whenever i go to pete's ale house on atlantic. they always have a fresh pie available for dessert...unlike 2nd street cafe in park slope which had a pretty nasty old pie that they served me recently after my brunch there.

        1. I love key lime pie and have had many in Florida. But Steve's Authentic is my favorite. He uses real key limes from Mexico and the pie is silky smooth, just the right tartness without being too sweet or tart, and the graham crust is just right. There's no better key lime pie out there.
