Pieous

In: Drinking|Eating

26 Feb 2013

(map) If you love pastrami, you owe it to yourself to try the best pastrami sandwich in Texas (and maybe even the US). The original vision for Pieous was to be all about pizza (get it? pie). But then the previous owner left behind his smoker, which inspired chef Josh to cure and smoke his own pastrami. Lucky for us! He bakes his own sourdough bread, too, and even makes the pickles himself. He’s so passionate about the bread, he’s carried his sourdough starter around for over 20 years.

The wood-burning pizza oven turns out some fantastic pies, like the Rocket, below. A white pizza topped with fresh mozzarella made in-house (of course), prosciutto and fresh arugula. The chefs also make the pizza dough here, and the oven produces a great crisp-chewy crust.

The menu offers lots of pizzas or you can create your own. There’s also a good list of salads and all the dressings are made in the kitchen. Several beers and wines are on the menu, too.

You order at the counter and they’ll bring out your food. The walls are painted with blackboard paint and covered with colorful ¬†expressions, mottos and words to live by. Below, an explanation for “pieous.” There’s also a special corner where kids can feel free to express themselves with chalk.

The chefs specialize in desserts, too, like fresh-baked fruit pies and giant cookies. That’s passion!

Driven by that place a hundred times and never stopped. That is about to change. Looks really good. Thanks.

Ed. Reply: Let us know what you think! You can get the pastrami as a plate instead of a sandwich if you’re doing the low-carb thing. ;)

This is one of my new favorite places too! The house-made mozzarella plate and the pastrami were by far the best things that I’ve had there ~ SO good!
