Dangerously Delicious Pies

This quaint, small pie shop on H Street is decorated with old-looking chandeliers, soothing music and soft mood lighting. Aside from paper menus, offerings are written on a wall in chalk. A few rocking chairs sit in the corners of this small shop, and less than ten tables litter the room. If the tables are taken, a countertop with a number of chairs offers a bar-like feel while you gaze at pies shown off in a glass case in front of the counter or at a refrigerator filled with bottled sodas.

With so many choices, it’s hard to choose just one. An employee recommended samplings of two savory and two sweet pies.  

The pecan pie, described in the menu as “a traditional southern pie, made with lots of love. Not too sweet with just the right amounts of vanilla and loads of pecans.” It was all that and more. 

The pork BBQ pie was everything you imagine a pulled pork sandwich to be, just in a pie. With the right amount of peppers and homemade barbeque sauce, which partnered well with the meat, this pie had a slightly spicy kick.  

The chocolate chess was like a giant brownie. Although slightly dry and chalky, the pie was an explosion of chocolate taste.  

The savory SMOG pie, filled with steak, mushrooms, onions and gruyere cheese, offered up contrasting tastes and consistencies for the taste buds. While the steak dominated, the gruyere added a nice edge to the pie, with the mushrooms and onions holding it all together.  

Dangerously Delicious Pies offers two great specials. The “lunch special” is available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and offers one savory pie, a side salad and a drink for $8. The “date-night special” is offered Monday through Wednesday from 5 p.m. till closing.  For $20, you get two savory pies, two sweet pies and two drinks. 

With a catering service, a national delivery service and convenient hours, Dangerously Delicious Pies has it all.
