We got chocolate and banana creme. Perhaps these were bad choices. But the fillings (which were your garden variety, OK filings, nothing spectacular) weren't really the problem. The crust wasn't good. In fact, I got some of that hard to describe, machine-made, old, bad-shortening taste from it, which is the kiss of death for all pies, great or small. If you don't like a filling, fine, you can change that, but if the crust is substandard, where can you go? Another pie company. EXTREMELY disappointed to have to pan this place. But be advised, waiting in a line in the middle of the 'hood that reaches outside in the rain, as I've seen people do during the holidays, is not time well spent.
