Sitting at the counter of the
Palms Grill Café in Atlanta last Saturday was a gentleman who had traveled all the
way from Des Moines to check out the Palms Grill pies. He had heard
through the grapevine that the Palms is a worthwhile destination for
a pie fanatic.
The fame of the Palms pies has spread across the Midwest, and
people travel from all over to try a slice. There are blue ribbons
on the wall from state fair pie competitions.
While he seemed like any other traveler stopping by for a Palms
sweet treat, he was in fact Steve Slack from Midwest Living
magazine. Slack is a former senior editor of Midwest Living and now
an occasional contributor to several publications with articles on life in the
Slack is also serious about pies. He is a pie blogger and travels
around the area sampling pies at restaurants.
Slack was not to be disappointed by this foray. After trying a
forkful, Slack quizzed the waitress on what the ingredients of the
crust were, and she rattled them off. He was surprised because he
could not pick out the ingredients.
If you want a piece of excellent pie, then Lincoln residents need
only to travel a few miles north. It's a little further for a great
bite for the rest of Logan County's residents and the country.
