The Best Pecan Pies in Every State

Aside from Mama’s at least.

Pecan pie is a Southern dessert that you’ll find at every Thanksgiving and most reunions or potlucks. Pecan pie (however you pronounce it) is undeniably delicious, and we all have our favorite place to get a slice, even if it’s just in Mama’s kitchen. According to Yelp’s data, these are the places in each state to get the best pecan pie in America. Yelp identified businesses in the restaurant and food categories with a large concentration of reviews mentioning the phrase "pecan pie," then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning "pecan pie." Although there’s nothing like a true Southern pecan pie, apparently, you can find some pretty close competition in non-Southern states, too. Regardless where you are in the U.S., you’re never too far from a little Southern comfort in a slice of pecan pie. These are the best pecan pies in every state.
