Slice of pecan pie at Olympus Grand Crossing in Katy, Texas



Did you know that pecan pie is the official State Pie of Texas?

The State House passed a ceremonial resolution in 2013. This delicious dessert dates back generations and is best served warm with a scoop of ice cream.

If you would like to enjoy a slice, then visit one of the following destinations near our Katy, TX apartments where you'll find some of the best pie in town:


Locally owned, Proud Pies serves coffee and artisan baked goods. The store boasts that its "pie-ristas" are equally trained in homemade pie and crafting exceptional lattes. It opens at 8:00 a.m., making it the perfect place to start the day. Visitors can play board games, and everyone receives fast, friendly service. The Big Texas Bourbon pecan pie is a customer favorite. It's offered daily and is free of additives and preservatives. 


A Katy favorite since 2008, Orleans Seafood Kitchen is known for its unique style of Southern hospitality. The restaurant makes first-time guests feels like longtime customers. It's where the good times roll, and visitors feel as though they're on Bourbon Street. A brick walkway leads to the menu boards where the attentive staff helps everyone choose the perfect meal. Try the jambalaya pasta with the pecan pie for dessert.


Chuckwagon is where you'll find meat, fire, and smoke. It's Katy's favorite barbecue destination, and the chefs cook over post oak wood. The owners have over 50 years of combined barbecue experience and offer a fun, western-themed atmosphere. The booths look like covered wagons, and televisions show the big game. Enjoy the ribs and potato salad, along with the pecan pie.
