The Best Pie in Dallas to Order for Thanksgiving (or Eat Right Now)
The approaching holidays are good as time as any to get reacquainted with our favorite Dallas desserts—specifically pie. And the best part? The majority of these slices can be ordered off the menu year-round. Here, the best pies in Dallas to indulge in right now.
1. Coconut Cream Pie at Al Biernat’s
If going to a steakhouse just for dessert is wrong, we don’t want to be right. This pie comes out fluffy, chilled and just the right amount of sweet. Grandma would approve.
4217 Oak Lawn Ave.; 214-219-2201 or albiernats.com
2. Key Lime Pie at Bob’s Steak & Chop House
In a city that is full of fancy key lime desserts, it’s quite a feat to claim the top spot. The combo of Nilla Wafer crust, cool custard and even cooler whipped cream prove it doesn’t have to be complicated for it to be delicious.
4300 Lemmon Ave.; 214-528-9446 or bobs-steakandchop.com
3. The Drunken Nut at Emporium Pies
Pies with nuts can be polarizing, but everyone in town agrees that this gooey slice is lick-your-lips good. Think Texas pecans covered in a mixture of butter, bourbon and brown sugar surrounded by shortbread crust. You’ll never go back to regular pecan pie again.
314 N. Bishop Ave.; 469-206-6126 or emporiumpies.com
4. Chocolate Cream Pie at Celebration
A slice of this chocolate cream pie is the only way to finish off a delicious farm-to-table dining experience. Made fresh daily, the melt-in-your-mouth filling, fresh whipped cream and crunchy graham cracker crust combine for pie poetry.
4503 W. Lovers Lane; 214-351-5681 or celebrationrestaurant.com
5. Pumpkin Pie at Bisous Bisous Pâtisserie
Preorder pies from this macaron-making outpost in West Village while you can—they’re only around for the holidays. Do you think if we ask nicely enough they’ll agree to go into the pie-making business year-round?
3700 McKinney Ave. #150; 214-613-3570 or bisous-bisous.com
6. Old-Fashioned Apple Pie at Humble: Simply Good Pies
We may have been drawn in by the shop’s clever name, but it turns out the pies speak for themselves. Specifically, the old-fashioned apple pie that is flaky, sweet and packed with uber-crisp apples that always taste freshly picked.
9014 Garland Rd.; 214-458-9039 or humble-pies.com
7. Blue Magic at Kessler Pie Co.
The motto? To live and pie in Oak Cliff. And this neighborhood hot spot’s most popular pie isn’t the number one seller by accident. Graham crackers, fluffy cream cheese and blueberries—it’s both refreshing and satisfying, and you won’t be able to stop at just one slice.
418 N Tyler St.; 214-842-2171 or kesslerpieco.com
