The Best Place To Get Pie In Every State, According To Yelp

Because pie is better than cake.

Posted on

Whether it's a warm, flaky slice of blueberry pie with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or a slice of the creamiest chocolate banana cream you've ever had, there's just something so delightfully magical about pie.

So we asked Yelp for the best places to get pie in each state (plus D.C.) — which they measured by identifying businesses with a large number of reviews mentioning "pie" and "pies" and then selected the "best" business in each state based on both the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning those keywords. To appear on this list, the majority of reviews had to reference sweet pies.

Because it's time to get to the good stuff, here are 51 spots to find the best pie, as suggested by all the pie-loving Yelpers out there.

"As for dessert, the ice box pie actually made me kind of angry because of how good it was. As I devoured it, I wished that I had been able to come up with it first. The silky texture and slight tang of the cream against the salty pretzel crust and the lemon curd — the perfect combination. Drooling as I type. No longer able to form complete sentences due to memory of dessert." —Yelper Maria F.
