Stopped in to get a pie for Thanksgiving. I wasn't impressed by the overpriced pies and it wasn't sweet enough for me. We tried the apple pie. Once was enough for me, I've had better pies for less money. Husband and wife owned business, free parking, not so friendly service.

Took a wild chance that there would be at least one Mince Pie. There was! Very few places sell this pie in the MD, PA, VA, DC area. Plus just a great day for a drive even if there hadn't been a pie. It is good, but $30? Far too much money for such a simple pie. Crust is good.... More

I had and always get the Apple caramel. They pies are big and delicious. I wish Shaunte would have tried the pies but I guess folks can't handle grumpy Sherman as we affectionately call him.

We checked this place out because it had some great reviews. We came by with conservative expectations, but we were extremely impressed. It is honestly the best pie we've ever had. We ordered the caramel apple with some pecans on top. It was relatively expensive ($26) but absolutely worth the money. Highly recommended and we will surely be coming back... More

There is never a special event, holiday, or celebration without one or two pies from Best Pies. The only problem we have is that family members all have their favorites as do we and we never get everyone's choice. The apple pies are scrumptious as are peach, pumpkin, pecan and sweet potato. When we call, Sherman knows us and our... More

Their pies are the best. Chocolate is my favorite and I have never run into surly service or problems taking my credit cards. The lemon is my wife's favorite. We buy them for special occasions.

I have bought five different pies over the course of four months. Very expensive but worth it...particularly the lemon meringue. Crust was light but firm and the filling was the perfect balance of tangy and sweet. The service is grumpy but who cares since you take out your pie. Definitely be prepared with cash, credit cards are grudgingly accepted. Worth... More

Went to this store because I heard their pies were good. When we walked in the man behind the counter didn't greet us and looked like he didn't want us in the store. We stated that the store smelled wonderful and he just stared at us. Then I asked about the pies and he acted like I was wasting his... More

I have purchased three pies from Best Pie to bring to various gatherings with friends and colleagues. The pies always receive compliments from those attending and I am invariably asked where did I purchase this from. They are fresh and very tasty and a class, or two, above a Giant or Safeway pie. Compliments to the pastry chef.

Stopped in about ten minutes before closing on a Friday night. Bought a chocolate cream pie and two cupcakes. As others have said, the pies are expensive but are made from scratch and excellent. Hope the business makes it as suburban tastes might find it hard to swallow paying $25 for a pie when Giant is $7, but you get... More
