A Great Place for Food & Friends
If you call yourself a foodie but haven't visited PJ Pies in Mcallen, Texas, I have to tell you how much you're missing out!! This bakery/café has something for everyone; from hardy & delicious meals, sweet & savory pies, to delectable coffee, PJ Pies has got a lot going on & all of it is GREAT!! What might be my favorite thing about PJ Pies is how involved they are in our community.
As a business, it can be easy to become popular & cash in on your popularity without caring about the quality of your product, (unfortunately that happens very often in the RGV) but PJ Pies continues to dedicate themselves to amazing pies, fantastic service, & family friendly events to keep everyone involved. As a contant costumer, I appreciate their attention to detail, their always cheerful service, & their ability to push the pie envelope.
For the Hungry..
Addie More Bacon
Here we have the sandwich my lovely friend Vanessa ordered & loved. Lots of crunchy bacon, fresh romaine lettuce, & thick sliced tomato with a spread of mayo on grilled wheat bread make for a very filling & satisfying meal. The bacon was extremely crunchy & abundant. Accompanied by some chips & a pickle, I think this is one of the best blt's around & at only 7.75, I think its a better deal than most fast food restaurants could ever offer. Not only is the price great, but the freshness of the ingredients & the care put into them cannot even compare.
Addie More Bacon- $7.75
Savory Pot Pies
Pot Pies- $6.50
All of the Pies!
Cherry Almond Pie
Bourbon-Chocolate Pecan Pie
My brother has always raved about how delicious pecan pie is, while I would sit there and think he was always exaggerating. He is actually the one who introduced to me to Pj Pies when they opened a while back & told me this pecan pie really changes the pecan pie game. He was not lying. Made with Southern Comfort & delicious chocolate, this is the best pecan pie I have ever had. Yes, I said it. BEST ONE EVER! In my opinion the chocolate is the thing that really brings this pie to another level. The pecans are crunchy & the ingredients just seem like they were destined to be together.
For the Sweet toothed..
Can't Forget They are also a Café!
Blight Night @ National Pie Day!
Their innovative ideas, their strong heart, & their amazing ability to turn a pie into a masterpiece has made PJ Pies a staple in the RGV's Foodster scene. When looking for a casual place to spend quality time with friends or family, enjoy a nice date, or just meet new & interesting people, Pj Pies is a place you want to try.
I will say that sometimes when I visit some local business I worry if they have what it takes to make it all the way, but I honestly don't have that worry with them, because they are the epitome of what a local business should aim to be. Honest, thoughtful, & food focused.
