Flying Saucer Pie
The Flying Saucer Pie Company has proudly served fresh pies to our customers since 1967, making us the oldest pie shop in the city of Houston. We are family owned and operated. Our policy has always been to satisfy our customers by serving them the best pies that could possibly be made outside of the home. At Flying Saucer Pie Company, we use only fresh eggs, all vegetable shortening and fresh fruit whenever possible. We donot add any preservatives; therefore, pies that contain eggs should be refrigerated. Pies are the only product we sell. They are made fresh daily from scratch. We will never sell you a frozen product. We have grown to appreciate our customers and wish to express our thanks to all of you in Houston and the surrounding communities for your support. We plan to serve you for many more years to come and always have the best quality pies available.
My mom told me about flying saucer pies. I has a slice of lemon cream. It was fabulous! Very lemony. We also took a Dutch Apple home. It just came out of the oven. Was warm n smelled great. After we tried it I will never eat another store bought frozen pie again. The crumble on top was awesome with a touch of cinnamon. We came from Pasadena n will be back.
Let me start by saying that I am a pie snob because I was spoiled by the Julian Apple Pie Company in California. I have yet to find an apple pie as good as there's anywhere else in the USA. However, the Flying Saucer isn't too bad either. My favorites are regular apple, cherry and key lime. Their cream pies are too, too creamy, but a nice slice of regular apple with ice cream on top is quite nice. I have yet to experience a bad pie, nor have I dealt with any sanitation issues. I typically try pies from other Houston locales, but keep returning to the Flying Saucer. I recommend it.
No Stars, Although I like this place, they are all about production without caution.....WHICH HAS RAISED CONCERN FOR ME AND FOR YOU GUYS TOO!!!!!! My favorite pie is the Strawberry Pie, I had bought a few the other day because Mom was in the hospital and visitors that came, we wanted to at least have an offering (just to be kind). Well, out of the 4 strawberry pies 3 of them had BUGS! Oh my!!!! I have not been back since. I wish I could, but my my my they will have to a lot more to earn my trust back! (HAVE PHOTOS AS PROOF!!!)
Excuse the pun -- their pies are out of this world. Want a dessert for a dinner party? Save the time and heat in the kitchen. You cannot make a pie anywhere near this quality for such a small price!
Want a pecan or pumpkin pie to take to the in-laws for Thanksgiving? Be prepared for a long, but fast moving line!
Personal fav - Strawberry Cheesecake!
We had three pies from Flying Saucer this past week: chocolate, key lime, and the peach. I swear every time I eat one of the pies from here I remember how good they are. House of Pies is good...but they don't hold a candle to the Saucer! I'm gonna miss this place like hell when I move out of Houston next month....maybe they will ship out of state? Let's hope so!
I have been enjoying pies from this bakery for over thirty years. I live 35 miles away, but I still make the trip every holiday for my pies. My family enjoys the apple and the fresh strawberry pie. However, I hear they are all delicious!
The Flying Saucer Pie Company is definitely Houston's place for pie.
The pie has a better crust, better tasting fillings, and affordable.
A slice of pie is about $2. And most whole pies sell for under $8.
Personal favorite: Chocolate Cream
Went there today and got a pumkin pie (awesome), pecan pie...our neighbor is addicted to the pecan pie and a strawberry pie. Service was quick, polite and awesome. The counter person complimented my photo of my baby three times!! I guess it all depends on your attitude when you go in.
