Thanksgiving is essentially a big excuse to eat really great food, right? After securing takeout turkey and sides, it’s time to think about desserts, specifically pie, the epitome of sweets perfection for the holiday. Bakeries, restaurants, and food trucks in the Austin area — which occupies the ancestral lands of the Coahuiltecan, Comanche, Jumanos, Tonkawa, and Lipan Apache — are making it easier for people to masquerade as amazing bakers with premade Thanksgiving pies to-go, all available for the long holiday weekend beginning on Thursday, November 25.

Follows are Austin’s best places to pick up takeout pies, whether you’re visiting family and friends and aren’t up to the baking challenge, or you just want to leave the baking to the experts. This includes big and small pies from Tiny Pies, Texas-sourced pies at Abby Jane Bakeshop, pie dough from Dai Due, among others.

Everything below is listed alphabetically and is available for pickups (delivery services are noted). Those looking specifically for takeout Thanksgiving dishes and meals can look to this guide for help. Be sure to wear your mask for pickups and deliveries, and leave ample tips.
