The greatest thing to happen to American pie since the four straight-to-DVD spinoffs (right??), Dangerously Delicious is a full-fledged pie empire with locations in Baltimore, DC, and now Detroit

DDP first popped up at Comet Bar, before shooting over to Midtown to take over the vacant kitchen at 3rd Street Bar

The chalkboard menu lays out a variety of options, two of which you'll actually care about

The former includes this Crab Con-quiche-da-door (get it???): a spinach/onion/mushroom/garlic/Swiss/goat cheese quiche pie mixed with chunks of Maryland crab & corn, and finished with hot sauce

Plus a pulled pork with homemade BBQ sauce, the S.M.O.G. (steak, mushroom, onion, Gruyere), and this shuffleboard game-ruining sausage/tomato/fennel

The latter counts dessert pies like key lime, apple, lemon chess (a lot of lemon & a little cornmeal), and The Baltimore Bomb, which's either how locals describe the prices at Bubbles Depot, or a melted chocolate, shortbread, and custard pie topped with a scoop of vanilla

To keep up with the bar hours, they're open seven days a week from 5p-130/2a & plan on working with 3rd Street on potential summer plans (outdoor patio concerts, food truck nights...), plus they'll also do call-ahead orders in case you're not Tara Reid, and actually have somewhere to be!

1. Dangerously Delicious Pies 4626 3rd St, Detroit, MI 48201 (Midtown)

This pie shop founded by musician Rodney "The Pie Man" Henry, whips up creations deserving of the title "Best Pie in Michigan." Every delectable batch of pies, both sweet and savory, are baked fresh and from scratch every day. This means the menu changes daily so you never know what you're getting yourself into when you walk through its doors and into its rustic, bar-like dining area. That is, except a flavor-packed punch: the best seller here is called the S.M.O.G. (that stands for steak, mushrooms, onions and gruyere).
