Finally! I’ve heard about Pies-n-Thighs for some time now but I never made it to Williamsburg to taste and see for myself until recently. Like most of the restaurants I have been to lately, it was very small. It was so small my cousins and I were asked to wait outside until a table was available. We had about a 25-minute wait. This wouldn’t have been a problem in good weather but it was cold with snow flurries. Based on that experience, I would suggest going on a nice day when the weather is warm.
I checked out the menu online before going so I planned my meal in advance. I ordered the 3 pieces of chicken with a side of home fries and a biscuit. My cousins both ordered the Chicken & Waffles. I really enjoyed the chicken. It was very hot and crispy. The flavor was good. The home fries were cooked with onions and what tasted like dill. I thought the dill flavor was a little bit strong. I prefer to just taste the potatoes and onions. The buckwheat waffles were very good. They had a slightly different flavor from regular waffles.
I’ve read Pies-n-Thighs had the best donuts in New York City. The donuts are big, not the biggest I have had but larger than your average donut. I had my heart set on the Chocolate Peppermint donut. Of course, that was the only donut they did not have that day! I ended up getting a Chocolate Cake donut to go. The donut was crisp on the outside and slightly sticky. Honestly, I wasn’t crazy about it. I was expecting something much better based on what I have read about them.
All-in-all, even with having to wait outside in the cold, I enjoyed my meal. It was a decent lunch for the price so I can’t complain.
