Mind you, the pies have always been good at Rita's. It's been around since 1989, a standard for a community that loves to meet and eat. The hours are long for a mom-and-pop sort of place; seven in the morning til eight at night every single day except Sunday -- when it's open an hour LONGER. The food is good -- drive-in fare, plate lunches and dinners, catfish on Friday
and pizza anytime. And there are always pies available.
That pie, though, is just perfect, a simple blend of lemon zest, cream cheese, whipped topping, lemon juice and sugar, piled into a home-crushed crust of vanilla wafers. Presented differently, it'd be worthy of a four star restaurant's menu.
