[DFW] Best Pecan Pie?

lizlemon Apr 19, 2008 04:24 PM

I don't usually like pecan pie, but after having it at Rick's Chop House in McKinney, I'm rediscovering this old Southern tradition.

Anyone know other good places for pecan pie?

Any good places for buttermilk chess pie?

    Acutally, I love the Whole Foods pecan pie. Have not tried either pie at a restaurant in town.

        The pecan pie at "The Porch" on Henderson Ave. in E. Dallas is really incredible, and I've both eaten and cooked plenty of pecan pies. I highly recommend it!

          Hmm, can't think of a good pecan pie rec right now, but the two Treebirds (used to be called Treebeards) locations downtown serve buttermilk chess squares that are delicious!

            my favorite chess pie is at Vern's Place, in Deep Ellum. Get the plain, not the buttermilk.

              If you're willing to drive a little, the Collin Street Bakery in Corsicana (about an hour south on I-45) has an incredible pecan pie. Was pleasantly surprised when I picked one up as a gift for Thanksgiving.

                I had a wonderful pecan pie at Houlihan's in Addison. They serve it warm and pour cointreau on it. It is delicious.
