Best New Pie Guy

Barry Margeson of Clarksville Pie

Hitting the Waterloo Ice House during the burger round-up earlier this year, we chanced to notice some very appealing slices of pie in the cooler. We hadn't come for pie, weren't looking for pie, didn't even know we were hungry for pie. But those pies called out to us, whispering, cajoling, seducing. Our resolve faltered, we ate pie and boy, are we glad. Quality pie maker Barry Margeson makes a splendid strawberry-rhubarb pie with a lattice crust, a decadent chocolate pecan pie with Bourbon named for a famous horse race and a Mexican chocolate pie with a delicate touch of cinnamon to name only a few. Margeson's pies are served at Star Seeds, all of the Waterloo Ice Houses, Rocky's Grill, the Backyard and soon, La Zona Rosa.
