ISO great pecan pie (take-out) in SF

I'm having a Texas style BBQ dinner this Saturday night and just discovered that my go-to pie, the pecan from Andronico's Forno bakery, has been discontinued as a "seasonal" item. (Wonder what season that is...) Making one from scratch is more than I can take on at this point. So, looking for great take out suggestions, hopefully in SF city. Thanks.

  1. I am not positive they have it, but you could try Mission Pie. People have written about a walnut pie that is similar to (but better than) pecan. Maybe they also make pecan.

      Mission Pie just has walnut currently, and it is damn good. Had some today, along with bites of banana cream pie and strawberry rhubarb pie.

      And scuttlebutt: I overheard the manager of St. Francis talking to a Destination Baking person about the possibility of serving the Mission/Destination pies at St. Francis. Good fit, I say.

    2. Roadside BBQ (Geary & 2nd Ave) has decent pecan pie and probably would sell you a whole one, although they normally sell by the slice. I would call ahead to find out.

      Park Chow has good pecan pie, although again I don't know if they sell whole ones, or if they always have it on the menu (I think so).

        Second Roadside BBQ's pecan pie - my absolutely favorite I've ever found because it is not tooth-achingly sweet.

      2. Sweet Things Bakery in the Cal Mart Supermarket on California and Spruce might have one.

        1. I have seen them as Costco in the past/

            Costco's pecan pie --- looks nice with whole pecan halves on top, but not so good to eat.

          2. Try Mission Beach Cafe - their pecan pie is really something (not too sweet or gooey, but made with chocolate). Give them a call and I bet they could hook you up with a whole pie.
