Quite simply the best pie I've found outside of my mom's kitchen. If you like a tender, crispy crust and a high meringue pie...This is the spot. Recommend eating lunch elsewhere and stopping here for dessert. 6 different meringue pies...The Chocolate is my favorite. YUMMY!

I cannot speak for pies and burgers but their breakfast was not great. The menu completely lacks inspired or interesting entrees. We settled for two scrambled eggs with sausage and bacon with hash browns. It was not bad but you cannot really mess this up....More

I had been wanting to go to Pie n Burger for over a year. The time finally arrived and I was so disappointed. It is overrated and expensive. It cost over $30 for 2 burgers and fries. There was nothing special about the burgers. I...More
