Good casual dining spot

We don't eat here as often as some of the other local dining establishments but probably should. I'm not big on pot pies so usually order one of the salads for lunch or dinner but my husband likes the vegetarian pies. The dessert pies are excellent.

Couple of caveats so please read carefully. Went with my wife and a friend. I had the southwestern pot pie, my wife the steak, we also had the garden salad with Thai peanut dressing. They were awesome. My friend had the Asian salad. She has a severe allergy to peppers and did ask beforehand. After being assured there were none... More

Every time we pass through Placerville on our way home to the Bay Area, we stop at Z-Pie to grab a couple take out frozen pot pies. They have a nice selection, we've tried several "off beat" ones, but we usually stick with the traditional chicken or turkey. Beware, though. The last couple times we went they had no regular...

Well first I would never order the turkey again unless I loved the over powering taste of sage and rosemary. Small for the price. Not worth it to me.

They run out of pies fairly quickly -- either the inventory is unable to meet the demand or something else. I had the Italian pot pie and my wife had to settle ford something else that was not her favorite. While the filling was delicious on mine, seemed the crust was a bit stale. It was your usual flaky crust...needed... More

Had a great lunch at Z-Pie. Our pies (the steak cabernet and tomatillo) were delicious and filling. We also had the apple pie for dessert. Very flaky, very nice crusts on everything. Highly recommended.

We travel most of the year in our RV and have friends who live in Placerville and they turned us on to Z-Pie. Now - whenever we pass thru town me leave with a freezer full of Pies. The Southwestern Chicken and Beef Cabernet are both delicious.

As the name implies, the menu has a variety of meat/veggie pot pies. I have enjoyed several different ones and enjoyed rich flavors. The pies are not large...

We wanted to like this place. It took a good 15 minutes for anyone to come take our order, and literally 15 minutes later we were told that about half of our orders (there were 12 of us)...couldn't be filled because they were out! When we walked in, we were the only ones in the whole place. About half our... More
