looking for really good pie-st louis area

anyone have a good place for really good homestyle pie in the general st louis area? It is becoming harder and harder to find. Used to be in this area there were really good country diners and the pie would be wonderful. Not so much anymore. Thanks!

  1. Never tried it, but the latest issure of St. Louis Magazine says Hodaks makes great apple pie.

        Thanks! I have heard of the blue owl, but it is getting a bit far... I live in University City.Anyone have any ideas a bit closer in?

          I don't think it's more than a 30-40 minute drive to the Blue Owl from U City. It's only about 20 minutes from 270 and 44 unless it's rush hour.

      2. Take a long drive to Effingham, Illinois Route 70 East and get off on the Wabash (Teutopolis Exit) Go to Niemerg's Steak House...probably 1/2 mile off exit for the BEST PIE in the is worth the drive....also good fried chicken...price is very good also...take a Sunday won't regret it...Elaine

        1. Not sure if it is still there, but there used to be a place in Florissant near 270 and Dunn road with great pie. Barn Deli maybe? That doesn't sound right, but it is showing on the map with that name. Looks like a barn, but I thought it was an antique place as well...

          1. The Blue Owl is definitely worth the 30 minute drive. The food there is pretty good. Just homestyle cooking type food. But the pies are great. They were featured on the Food Network 2 times recently I believe. They are stacked high and are homemade. If you want really good pie, you can't miss this place.
