This is day number 118 of our trip around the world. My wife says the chicken pot pie is every bit as good as when she came here as a child. Unfortunately they have no wine or beer. Biscuits and sercice were great. Acoustics make it noisy when even a few people are there.

Chicken Pie Shop Fresno, Ca. 2/4/16 I had the Chicken Pie, I thought it was close to what my mother made for us 50 years ago. The wife said it had too much gravy in it. I have to agree with one other customer who filed a report on TripAdvisor. This place is in BAD need of remodeling. If they... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant at night while checking out the "Tower District". I was on the hunt for cool vintage neon signs and to see the Tower Theater which was sadly dark. Our first view of the restaurant was met with an ultra cool vintage interior, still lite due to a janitor doing some cleaning. Wow! is all I... More

You can't come to Fresno and not try the Chicken Pie Shop! It's literally like stepping back in time into a 1950's diner. The food is all made from scratch, family recipes. DELICIOUS! Reminds me of the chicken pies my own grandma used to make when I was growing up.

Grandmarie's Chicken Pie shop is a tradition and their chicken pot pies are a comfort food from my childhood. The food is traditional, American and tasty. You can't beat the 1950s ambience of the place, and I try to visit whenever I come back to Fresno to visit family.

Chicken pies, burgers, and omelettes! Standard American fare to be sure all served in a diner unchanged from the late 1950's. I like the ambience, the vinyl seats and the high roof. Good service too. I always leave satisfied. Chicken pies are great A greasy-spoon experience at its best!

This place has been here since 1956 and it looks like it. Nothing has changed. It is fun to go for the food and their pies but that is where it stops. After being seated I started to look around. If I had not been with a large crowd I would have left. The place needs a heavy cleaning. Like... More

Go soon and let the cook know you want it to be on the "for always" menu. Everyone seems to go for the chicken pie, but the chef put together a chili verde pot pie...omg, if you like a bit of spice, and want to venture from the usual, yummmmmmmmmmmmmm. Try this. Vote yes to keep forever.

This vintage spot is a must visit. Lots of locals go there so you know it is good eats. The down home cooking is very tasty and the prices are reasonable. We had the chicken pie, which they make 300 per day. Fresh, delicious and hearty. The servers were very good and friendly making us feel like regulars.
