REX NELSON: A slice of pie

By Rex Nelson

This article was published April 21, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

Earlier this year, the folks at Arkansas Life magazine asked me to list my favorite restaurant for pie. It wasn't an easy choice because Arkansas is one of the top pie states in the country. I settled on the small restaurant at the Shangri-La Resort on Lake Ouachita near Mount Ida.

Rex, that Karo nut pie (aka Pecan Pie) is awesome, as well as the way my family has made that particular pie for at least three generations. Aside from the homemade pies that I now make, recipes handed down through multiple generations of my family, the best restaurant pies I have ever eaten were at two places. The now closed Midway Café in Y City on Highway 71, and currently at The Wooden Spoon in Gentry. You really need to go there! If your favorite pie is sold out, try the bread pudding as well!

Stoby's/Patti Cakes in Conway makes some good deserts. Possum pie, coconut cream, Italian cream cake, etc.

Bryce's cafeteria in Texarkana had the best fresh peach pie and there were traffic jams in the Ark-La-Tex when peaches were ripe. Millenials don't like cafeterias and at the few remaining there are only geezers eating. I guess they have memories of what good food tasted like. And millenials don't like geezers. Bryce's is gone now.
