If there’s one thing Williamsburgers know, it’s how to do things the old fashioned way. At Pies ‘n’ Thighs, they relish in the retro. Everything is old school, from the diner chairs to the chrome countertops to the letter board menu. Stepping into Pies ‘n’ Thighs, is like stepping back in time to a classic Southern diner, where homemade pies are proudly displayed under glass covers and a new batch of sweet tea is brewing in the corner.
Pies ‘n’ Thighs serves up all the Southern staples, from collard greens and cheesy grits to fried catfish and burnt ends. I’ve been told the catfish is incredibly juicy with a satisfying crunchy crust. Similarly, people have urged me time and time again to try Pies ‘n’ Thighs’ tender pulled pork sandwich. Still every time I go, I can’t help but stick with my old standby: fried chicken with mac and cheese on the side. To me, the fried chicken is Pies ‘n’ Thighs’ is the quintessential fried chicken: flakey, juicy, and with the perfect amount of seasoning.
Some days, my craving for fried chicken is so out of control, I can’t even function until it’s satiated. Then I go to Pies ‘n’ Thighs for a fix and all is right with the world again.
