Well, almost in town. This one happens to be in San Marcos, 30 minutes or less away, so it counts. Hey, you guys in big cities drive 45 minutes to an hour to get to restaurants all the time!

Pie Society, an upscale pizza joint/social parlor, was brought to us by Chase and Seth Katz -- the two brothers behind Dos Gatos Kolache Bakery (Dos Gatos, Two Cats, Katz Bros.? Get it?) as well as Zelick's, a different kind of bar for a college town like San Marcos. They transformed a vintage filling station into a place where the music isn't so loud that it prohibits conversation, and the selection of Texas based beers is broad.  Now, with the addition of Pie Society, I'd say they have quite the Trifecta!

The pizza was excellent! We ordered a whole "medium" pizza, which ended up being two meals for the two of us...

plus one of their Caprese Salads. They also sell pizza by the slice. I think that's what we will order next time, so we can try several different kinds.

The only disappointment of the evening was this door...

and the sign which was attached to it.

I really, really wanted to open that door, to get a glimpse of the "social parlor" inside. I don't know if it was just too early in the evening, or if perhaps they are still waiting for their hard liquor license. (they do have beer and wine) But if we could have gone through that door, I think this place would have been the perfect follow up for the movie Jersey Boys, which we had just been to see.
