You can find pecan pie just about anywhere in the country. However, if you really want it done right, you have to head to Georgia. There are hundreds of restaurants serving it up, but here are a handful of our favorites.

With pecan pies as flavorful as this legendary restaurant in the heart of Savannah’s historic district is colorful, the dessert is a must-eat if you dine here. Pecans can also be found throughout the menu, in the pecan-crusted chicken breast, sweet potato with pecan vanilla butter, and spiced pecans in the strawberry arugula salad.
Ellis Brothers Pecan Farm (Vienna)
A true family affair, the Ellis Brothers farm has been in business since 1944. In addition to pecan pie, there are praline crunch pecans, amaretto pecans, and honey cinnamon roasted pecans. Can’t make it down to Georgia? You can order a pie from the farm’s website, which is (we’re not kidding) wearenuts.com.
The pecan pie at Dovetail isn’t for purists, but it might be even tastier. The Cracked Pie here boasts a chewy oatmeal cookie crust, pecan filling, and salted caramel ice cream topping. A little different, and a whole lot delicious.
Chester Brunnenmeyer’s (Blue Ridge)
Prefer your pie a little more…spirited? Check out the Southern Bourbon Pecan Pie here, which is infused with the brown liquor for an extra kick.
Burt’s Butcher Shoppe & Eatery (Columbus)
If you’re not hungry enough for a whole pie or you’re strapped for cash, head to Burt’s Butcher Shoppe & Eatery, a local favorite where you can get a slice for just two bucks. Yes, two bucks!
