Craving pecan pie

I don't do pastries, and my friend who promised to bring a pecan pie for T-giving decided to do apple instead. One week later and I'm still craving that promised pecan pie. Where can I buy one in LA? My birthday is this weekend, so I'll gladly go for pie instead of cake.

    honestly, costco does a really good one.
    there's also aunt kizzy's back porch, clementine (pricey), and bake'n'broil

      Susina has good pecan pie, but you might want to call to see if they have it in the case (or even ask them to put aside a piece).

        We tried the pecan pie at the 4 'n Twenty in Van Nuys for TG and I thought it was one of the best pecan pies I've ever tasted. Only $10.99! Happy Birthday

          If you want to go BIG for your birthday and don't mind paying for it then visit this link:

          I grew up in Houston, TX and have been eating the Pecan Pie at Goode Company BBQ since I was a little kid. With shipping it will run you close to $40. but you only live once and you should treat yourself.

            i'm curious as to whether anyone has tried these pies mentioned by Bill Simmons in his live chat yesterday:

              a slice at apple pan is not too shabby, with some fresh whipped cream to cut the sweetness and richness of the pecans.

              i don't quite like the commercial stuff they deal with at costco or supermarkets.

              interestingly it's easier to get a good slice of southern pecan pie in LA, than it is to get a slice of New York pizza (i know pre-vitos, pre-joes).

              Kreme Krop bakery in Inglewood - i believe off Manchester ... really good crust . I also saw a lady at the Long Beach Farmer's market last Sunday selling only Pecan Pies .... they looked delightful ... i may give it a try this weekend.

                where's the long beach farmer's market on sundays located at? and hours? sounds good, what other food items are there.

                if she's only selling the Pean Pies, that's a real good sign.

                I had a divine pecan tart (more or les the same thing) for Thanksgiving at Campanile, so you might give the La Brea Bakery a call.

                Other than that, my favorite has always been DuPar's.
