Grand Junction’s Choice for the Valley’s Best Pie
In honor of National Pie Day, I asked you to vote for the Grand Valley's best pie. The polls are closed, and these are the results.
According to the National Pie Council, January 23 was National Pie Day. The website Holiday Insights suggested we all run right out and celebrate.
National Pie Day is a special day that is set aside to bake and cook all of your favorite pies. On this day, you are also encouraged to bake a few new pie recipes. And most importantly, it's a day to eat pies! A great way to celebrate National Pie Day is to bake some pies and give them away to friends, neighbors, and relatives. You never know, you may be starting a tradition of pie giving between your friends and family.
I'm not a pie person, so I had no idea where to begin. A buddy at the station, Zane Mathews, posted last Thanksgiving with his findings for Grand Junction's best pumpkin pie. That was helpful, but it still didn't point me in the right direction.
On that note, I turned to you. The question was asked, "Where does one go around Grand Junction and the surrounding area to enjoy pie?" You stepped up to the plate (pun intended) in a big way. The votes have been counted, and these are the results, shown here with a..... get ready for it..... pie chart (that pun was intended, too).
Congratulations Village Inn with 42.03 percent of the vote. Coming in second and third were Homestyle Bakery and Alpine Pie Co.
Thank you for voting. Special thanks to those who did write-in votes. Honorable mention goes to Strayhorn Grill, Rib City Grill, and the City Market in Orchard Mesa.
Should you suddenly find yourself in need of a pie, you now have information to get you started. Thanks again to all who voted.
