WOW ... REAL PIES!!!!

If you, like me, are an import from a foreign land who many years ago decided to swear allegiance to the flag, there are still things for which you long. A REAL Australian style Beef Pie is one of those iconic memories that will never fade. KO Pies has THE BEST pies that I have eaten anywhere... read more

I went to Ko for take out . I ordered a lamb shank pie . The pie was good size with vegetables mainly peas. The taste was ok but not the best pie that I have had, I had a similar pie in Helsinki that was better, The staff that I ordered from was very nice.

Took a friend from out of town on a little excursion to East Boston to visit KO Pies. I was in the mood for a sausage roll, meat pie a little art work and view of Boston as an added bonus. Meat pie floater was a meal in itself. The sausage rolls were just like I had at Bulli High... More

Great meat pies. Used to work nearby and on Saturdays we would usually order from there. I usually got a sausage roll and a a beef meat pie. Was never disappointed with the selection.

Go sit in the harbor and enjoy an Aussie pie covered in mash with a cold beer or cider while watching soccer and taking in the views. On a rainy day, grab one of the board games or cards against humanity from the counter and enjoy the afternoon before catching a water taxi across to the modern art museum.

For an Aussie on the road for three months and still three weeks to go before hitting Aussie soil again, this was a dream. Two words - sausage roll. If you don't know what that is, get to KO for one or come to OZ...whichever is easier. Either will end up a delicious adventure.

Good, friendly service every time. The menu is interesting with specials that change. I can always count on having a good meal here. Sitting outside in good weather makes it even more enjoyable.

Stopped for take-out on the way home from a day out & about in Southie. I had read about the place and seen tv bits on Chronicle and was interested. 4 pies and 2 sides ran about $35 which I thought at the time to be a bit expensive. They package the pies with heating instructions and staff was very... More

I thought coming there was risky because they serve mainly meat pies.. I ended up ordering one because that's its speciality from Australian culture. No regrets! The crust is perfectly made. I ordered beef stew pie and it was really good. The staff was friendly as well. Good service. So it is strongly recommended!
