Best Pie (Sweet)

Sweet Potato Pie at Connie’s Bar-B-Q

Sure, the meat’s the thing at Connie’s, racks of tasty ribs and smoked chickens, all slathered in bright orange barbecue sauce founded on zippy vinegar and spicy peppers. With decades of wood smoke laying a yellowy glaze over every surface of the small storefront, you might miss the pie. Slices are individually wrapped in plastic — nothing fussy, just a luxuriously creamy mix of brown sugar and orange sweet potato and a bright splash of orange juice. Order an extra one for the car trip home with your bag o’ meat. 1795 16th Street S., St. Petersburg, 727-894-3258.
