She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed really likes her pies.  She prefers sugar free or no sugar added, but if she's careful about her diet she can have regular ones.

She liked the ones at Marie Callendar's, but they're gone now.

So...who has the best pies...and no, your mom doesn't count!

They only make a few, but Merritt's makes a blueberry pie that inspires song.

I believe you will find like quality at Village Inn.  I suspect they might even use the same bakery for the pies as the offerings were similar.

Why doesn't SWMBO make her own? There is a reason the saying goes "as easy as..." With a food processor making a crust takes less than a minute and it's only four ingredients: flour, fat (lard, shortening or butter), salt, tablespoons of ice water.

Filling is fresh fruit, sugar or substitute (honey works for some fruit types) and maybe corn starch (thickening agent), lemon, cinnamon, nutmeg depending on the fruit. 

Peaches are coming into season and what is better than peach pie or cobbler? Nothing that's what.

To me, that's tantamount to getting frozen Whitecastles at Wal-Mart.

IMO the Dutch Apple Pie is just as good as the ones sold in the restaurant.

Nelson's has excellent pies.

Impressions has great pies - at least if they relocate.  Also, Brownies always had great pie before the ownership change - I haven't been since then, so I don't know if that still holds true.

Cheesecake Factory.

Brownie's Hamburgers (lemon and coconut cream pies are both excellent - only ones I have eaten.  Never seem to get any further down the list.)

Check to see if it's still the case, but there was a time that the Coleman's pie cook was making pies at Lambrusco'z.

Black Jaxx in Oologah used to have an incredible pie chef.  Can't find her anymore, though.  Another sad thing about Black Jaxx going away!  Great pies!!
