“A Very Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

This place.was.a.wonderful surprise. The wife and I wanted something different, something local. A friendly merchant suggested Z-Pie, so we took a chance and it was just great. Pot pies! Go figure. Lora had a Rosemary Lamb pot pie,.while I ordered the Southwest Chicken, just two of the 8 varieties. Delicious. Both of them. Followed by a Berry pot pie ( they also have an apple pot pie), which was mm mm good! The servers were friendly,.the noise level was good,.and.we.left knowing that this will be a must(!) whenever we go to, or even pass.through, Placerville

“Back alley restaurant off beaten road”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Z PIES is a quaint little restaurant on a little street-alley area across from the Placerville, CA. City Hall. Placerville is on hiway 50.. 1/2 way between Sacramento & South Lake Tahoe.
Z-PIES has a variety of different baked lunch or dinner meat & vegetable pies very much like a "chicken-pot-pie" style. You can buy them frozen and take them home or wherever you are going within an hour or so until they defrost. Hearty pies and a wide selection.. Quite good! or stay at the restaurant and eat there!

“Really good pies for lunch or dinner”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

z-Pie makes yummy pies that you can eat at the comfortable dining room or get'm to go. They have good salads, deserts, a a good selection of beers. It's a great change of pace place. Where can you find a place specializing in delicious meat and veggi pies. Take some frozen pies, put them in your freezer for the next "I'm to lazy to make dinner" nights.

“Cool name, great concept”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

Got a steak and Cabernet pie, salad with balsamic dressing and an apple pie for later. All were top notch, fresh, loaded with hearty ingredients. Great decor and happy people behind counter.

“Good Pies, Good Price”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Z-Pie proves that it is possible to go out for dinner without breaking the bank. We had been meaning to try this place for months, but have overlooked because it is not right on Main. The other night we didn't feel like cooking and dropped in to the restaurant for an early Sunday dinner. We shared a gargonzola salad, which was more than enough for us. For the mains, we had a rosemary and lamb pie and steak and cabernet pie. Both pies were very tasty and piping hot. Add a couple of microbrews from the menu at you have a good dinner for about 30 bucks. Service was prompt and friendly and our waitress was willing to answer questions about our options. Z-Pie is definitely on our restaurant list.
