Memphis Pies For National Pie Day

16 Memphis Pies For National Pie Day

National Pie Day comes but..twice a year? National Pie Day (the food) is January 23, but everyone can remember March 14th (technically for Pi the number, 3.14) better. Honestly, who cares which day it is?

Eat pie when you want. Find the best pie in town. Lord knows Memphis and the Mid-south have a ton of delicious pie places and bakeries where you can enjoy flaky, sweet, satisfying ultimate dessert comfort food: pie.

To celebrate, here is a post filled some of the best places to get pie in Memphis, in no particular order. Think of it as a family photo album places to get pie in the Mid-South. There are probably a few more I could add to this list, too. Let me know your favorites in the comments!

1. Shady Wake Pecan Pie from Muddy's

Muddys Pecan Pie

Muddy's is a Memphis institution for a reason, and their Shady Wake pie is a special take on the classic Southern pecan pie. Read more about Muddy's Bake Shop here.

2. Peanut Butter Pie from Hog and Homin

Not to play favorites, but this is my favorite. Hands down, the best. it's like a pie and banana pudding had a baby. A sweet, beautiful baby. 

I ate it every year for my birthday until they burned down, and I plan to restart that tradition again this year since Hog & Hominy has risen from the ashes!

In an unassuming strip mall in Cordova, there's the most mom 'n' pop pie shop you could ever hope to visit. They have dozens of pie flavors and desserts to try, and if it's your first time they'll offer you a sample of the #1 selling, award-winning Slap Yo Mama Chocolate Pie! Friendly people and tasty, extremely affordable pies.

The Apple Pie at Sweet Grass consists of layers of thinly sliced apples, sour cream, and a crisp crust. Sadly, you'll have to hurry to get this one as Sweet Grass is closing in the next month or so.

5. Hand Pie from Celtic Crossing

Meat pies need love, too. The gravy served with these at the Irish pub in Cooper Young is so good.

6. Pecan Pie from Gus' Fried Chicken

9. Sweet Buttermilk Pie from Napa Cafe

Imagine a homemade cheesecake, but it's lighter, creamier, and fluffier. It's not too rich, and comes with a brown sugar reduction sauce. Absolutely delicious. Absolutely famous!

What are your favorite Memphis pies?

Great list. Any pie from Stone Soup Cafe and the lemon ice box pie from 3 Angels on Broad are also worthy of mention.

Any list that doesn't include Commissary Chocolate Pie is a incomplete list. Best pie in Memphis.!
