Well, after much construction and renovation, a new and improved House of Pies has reopened, so you can now make your way over there and sit for a spell with your favorite slice. And be sure to tell the staff hello, because most of them are back as well.
The owners of the restaurant carried out extensive work on the interior space, and have even added a patio for outdoor dining. In addition, the kitchen is home to new and improved appliances and equipment. (But don't worry, the pies will still be the same ones you fell in love with all those years ago.)
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
