So what if you didn't name a specific pie? You definitely came through with nominations for the places that serve them.
The nominations are in, and now it's time to choose between pies at a down-on-the-farm kind of place and pies at a place where you can buy a pack of a hundred rolls of paper towels. The nominees for the Food Fight: Best Pies are Bob Evans restaurants and Costco. We love the hot, brown food and friendly atmosphere of Bob Evans, and we love to push our great big cart to the back of the store at Costco and stare at those enormous pies. And then, after much inner debate and sucking in of our stomachs, we lift one of the apple pies into the cart. So, which will it be? Bob? Costco? Bob Costas? Vote now.
