Lemon cream.

Around the holidays, traffic builds up out on West Markham, with all the customers coming and going at Chip's Barbecue.  No, they're not picking up turkeys or hams (though that can be arranged).  The clientele is all local, and they're all at the restaurant for the pie.

The pies at Chip's Barbecue have become legendary.  They come in endless variety -- from the standards such as pecan and pumpkin, to the cream pies -- and those cream pies!  Chocolate, banana, coconut... and lemon.
In fact, the lemon cream pie at Chip's Barbecue is unparalleled.  It's not an icebox pie or a meringue, just a clean and clear perfect slice of sweet-tart and delicious.

But if you want one on your holiday table, you have to order early.  The folks who run Chip's only make so many pie, and usually all those pies are
claimed by the Monday before Thanksgiving.

More on Chip's Barbecue here and here and here and here.
