We drove around a bit to see what struck our fancy and the "homemade pies" sign lured me into Pine Country Restaurant.
I love pie.
Kitschy country decor.
The barley soup that came with my meal.
I ordered a hot turkey sandwich, $7.99, open-faced covered in gravy, served with mashed potatoes, a vegetable, and a side of cranberry sauce. Just OK. Turkey slices were too thin and few, but standard American restaurant fare.
Gourmet Pigs got the fresh veggie sandwich, $6.99, La Baccia bread, basil pesto, zucchini, carrots, green leaf lettuce, avocado, celery, tomato. It seemed bland to me, but she wanted some veggies to off-set all the deep-fried sopaipillas she had been eating for weeks in New Mexico.
Since the pies were advertised as made fresh every day, we had to get one. Each slice is $4.49. We asked the waiter what he recommended and he gave us this chocolate pudding chocolate mousse Oreo pie.
It was huge!
A decadent end to an OK meal.
Now onward to the Grand Canyon!
