We really enjoy the salads offered and the cheese plate. We rarely try the pot pies, but have found the berry pie with ice cream is a delicious dessert. Unfortunately they do not seem to have a children's menu. Wine and dinner prices are reasonable and the environment and service is wonderful.

My husband & I wanted to take dessert back to our B&B. We were walking distance to Z-Pie from our restaurant where we had dinner. We ordered the hot 3-berry pie. Unfortunately because the pie was pulled from a windowed oven or heat lamp the pie was over baked. The crust was hard and chewy and the filling dry. We... More

Very quiet, off the beaten path restaurant. The turkey pie and the chicken were both excellent! Wish we'd bought a couple to go!

Nice little place off Main Street across from parking garage. Lots off choices but we stopped going on account of too much spice.

A small whole in the wall joint, but has some great food. All about their pot pies and they are good. Set more for adult taste, but they have a pizza type pot pie for the little ones.

Z PIE makes wonderful comfort food pot pies. Their flakey crust and yummy fillings are ready at home in about an hour. The Placerville story is worth the drive to stock up and have a piping fresh one.

I am not a big fan of z pie... not because they don't make good little pies, they are tasty...but they really are pricey for what you get.Some folks swear by them. This is one of those things you will need to decide on your own...so go try one and write a review!
