House of Pies is an old-timey diner which has been at the same place since 1967 and has grown with a new branch on Westheimer in recent years. Does the pie house live up to its high expectations?
If you ask the staff, they’ll tell you about their favorite pies and biggest sellers on the menu. The popular fruit pies, cream meringues, and cheese cakes are always on top of that list. One place that will never cease to amaze even the most traveled visitors is the House of Pies. When you do go to this place though, take my advice and order a pie that you like and not just the popular choices. This way you can have an enhanced version of a personal favorite. We recommend the coconut cream pie with a close second going to the banana cream pie. Both have flaky and remarkably pleasant crusts with a rich filling that is simply to die for.
But those aren’t the only items on the House of Pies’ menu.There is one sandwich on their menu that will change your life. Now, this is not a meal for the faint of heart. This is a long day at work, need to relieve some stress out on some good eats, kind of meal. A late night, detour after the club, sort of meal. This is an up all night, studying late, need a midnight snack type of meal. I’m talking about the one and only Monte Crisco.
This sandwich is, as told by the menu, is a triple decker of ham, turkey and Swiss cheese, egg-cream battered, deep fried, and dusted with powdered sugar….. Need I say more? Don’t take my word for it. This is one of those sandwiches you to need to see to believe that magic does still exist in the world.
Breakfast is a whole other story, but it’s one story you’re going to want to read! You get to choose from three different menus: Texas Breakfast, Three Egg Omelets, or Specialty Breakfasts. They have vegetarian options. Not feeling adventurous? Just get a few sides and create your own unique breakfast with assorted breads, eggs, meats and cheeses to choose from.
