I don't understand the attraction of Dangerously Delicious Pies
After our meal at Centro Tapas Bar, we walked a few blocks to Dangerously Delicious Pies for dessert. I had heard of it and thought it would be a good way to end the meal, after a short stroll between restaurants.
We ordered slices of coconut chess pie, apple pie, Baltimore Bomb (Berger cookie pie) , White Trash, and pumpkin pie. The Baltimore Bomb was the favorite of the night.
The fillings were good, not as sweet as I was expecting (and prefer), but rich and creamy. The pie crust was disappointingly tough and hard to eat.
Were we there on an off night or is this a place whose name promises more than the kitchen delivers?

There is a huge difference between the pies when Rodney makes them, and from what i have seen, everyone else. The saying goes if you give 10 people the same recipe there will be 10 different results. He is skilled at making his own pies. It seems he is just unable to pass along his skills to his bakers for whatever reason. The pies were alot better when he was making them all the time at his first store almost a decade ago.
I agree with insidetrader. I had a wonderful slice of granny smith apple /raspberry pie at his old location in Canton about five years ago, but lately I've been most disappointed.
