America's Best Pies
Jim’s Steak + Spaghetti House, Huntington, WV
Best Pie to Try: Strawberry Pie.
According to Jimmie Tweel Carder, whose father opened his namesake restaurant 72 years ago, nobody remembers when the strawberry pie madness began. It may have been a waitress with a bumper crop of berries and not enough mouths at home. Today, crowds gather for one week in May, when Carder sells more than 1,000 freshly baked pies. Slices have been priced at $2.75 for decades, and there is a limit of four slices per person. (920 5th Ave., Huntington, WV; 304/696-9788)
