There's no shortage of pie in Austin—in fact it just might be the city's favorite dessert. And although Austin's food scene is expanding and earning a reputation for creative cuisine, the pies, like much of the BBQ, remain quite traditional.
In a city where the state nut litters the sidewalks during the fall, pecan pie reigns supreme. But don't worry, there's also plenty of cream, chess, and fruit pies. These six slices are the perfect end to any meal or as an afternoon pick-me-up with a cup of coffee (preferably iced at this time of year).
