I simply can’t stress it enough to you big-city folks; when you’re in East Texas PLEASE go where the locals go! And out here, it’s hard to beat a place like The Shed.
Now, the city of Edom is a bit off the beaten path of Interstate 20 so folks usually come to Edom with purpose in mind. There’s a nice row of antique shops in town, but it’s main attraction is the food.
“Texas Friendly Spoken Here” is the feeling you get when you walk into The Shed and don’t let the name or its seemingly small building fool you. This is a very large restaurant and can accommodate a party of any size. On a recent visit, they were able to seat 12 hungry guys from the office right in the middle of the lunch rush. Orders ranged from grilled chicken sandwiches, meatloaf plates, fried catfish, and chicken fried steak.
The food was excellent, of course, and we all cleaned our plates because Momma raised us right….and we wanted PIE!
It’s true, folks. The very best reason to come to The Shed is for its world famous pies. At our table, 6 of the 12 went for the Reese’s Dream — a layer of chocolate and a layer of peanut butter topped off with the most “dreamy” whipped topping you’ve ever tasted. The rest of the group was evenly divided between Pecan Pie, Chocolate Pie, and my favorite — the Coconut Dream. It should be noted that a slice of pie at The Shed is, really, almost a full-quarter of the pie…so it’s definitely share-able if your lady friend is around. On this day, however, there wasn’t any sharing.
So, make your way out to The Shed. Don’t be put off if the parking lot is crowded because there’s plenty of room inside. And, as long as Momma’s not around, they’ll probably even let you START with pie.
