Where to order Pies for Thanksgiving?

Lotus7 Nov 14, 2012 12:06 PM

Good afternoon! i could use your recommendations for a good bakery to order pies from for Thanksgiving--We definitely want pumpkin pie as well as pecan and a 3rd variety that looks appealing. I'd like to get them from a place in Austin (so no Tx Pie Co bc it's too far). Thanks and look forward to your recs!

    I realize it's not what you asked for, but my family has made it a tradition to get pumpkin pie from Costco each year. They're pretty good and might be a 'backup' plan if you don't find anything else. I'm pretty sure they have pecan as well.

      What about Upper Crust? Their cranberry-apple pie is wonderful. You can get your dinner rolls there, too. No doubt, they'll be doing something special for the occasion, too.

        There are several trailers and small operations that sell great pies - Cutie Pies comes to mind - but you need to preorder really soon. You can also try Sugar Mama's, Pie Fixes Everything or The Pie Society.

        For non-trailer options the Eastside Cafe spin-off Elaine's Pork and Pies might be taking Thanksgiving orders for whole pies and I know Walton's Fancy and Staple sells them.

        Of all these options, my favorites are the buttermilk pies at Cutie Pies and Elaine's.

          Ditto to above Costco suggestion.

            Shame on me! I forgot the Queen of Pies/Cheesecake.

                  Hi. I like this delivery option. Looks like she was at Asti, that I take as a good sign. Is the stuff good? Great? Thanks.

                  I love the Frisco's pies - just classic, Americana diner-y options. Their Millionaire pie is particularly delicious!

                    My favorite is Capital City Bakery. The chocolate pie I got last year was amazing.

                        Thanks everyone for the awesome suggestions. I went with F&D, and it did not disappoint. The Buttermilk pie was divine. Also ordered the mixed nut pie (excellent though a bit messy) as well as the pumpkin (very good though a bit too much spice). The pies were so good that they did not need the accompanying sauces. Thanks again.
