How fun! I used to work at Marie Callender's waaaay back when. The banana cream pies had to be "discarded" at the end of each night. Let's just say that we made sure they always found happy homes . ;)

Soo @ hungryones

Mmm... Those are my 2 fav spots to go for chicken pot pie. :-)


I haven't been to the Chicken Pie Shop yet. I believe it used to be in Hillcrest before the move. I love the crust on the pot pies at Marie Callenders. Their berry pies are also great.


How cool, JanFrederick, you have been a part of history! We used to enjoy being recipients of discards from friends, but never were so fortunate as to have friends from Marie's. Banana cream pie was our alternate choice!

Nothing better, Soo. There are some places which have their own versions, but those aren't the same...classic recipes and familiar eating spaces combine perfectly.

Yes, cc the original location was on Robinson at Fifth (it's now a Starbucks)and we went to it when the pie dinner (everything, including dessert) was $3.10; now it's $8.99 (and the pie dinner still gets to your table in a flash-you can't order and run to the restroom and get back before it's there). It's classic San Diego (to me) and just good, simple food. Every single one of Marie's dessert pies is so very good!


The open face hot turkey sandwich always brings back childhood memories for me Cathy.


Me too, Kirk. It's true comfort.
