You need to stop off here and eat. The service was outstanding. We had a great waitress. The food was excellent.
I had read about the pies and what I read was correct. We tried the PCP (pineapple, coconut, and pecan). Wonderful tasting. We also tried the volcano cake which was delicious. The waitress gave us a taste of the fudge pie and it was good. She also gave us a copy of the fudge pie recipe and the volcano cake recipe. You don't see this very often.
It is worth the trip. We were heading to Indiana and we planned the trip to include this stop.
"Behold: an Ed & Kay mile-high meringue pie"
"Here is a slice of the lemon meringue pie. It quivers when the waitress sets it down on the table, and tends to fall apart as soon as you touch it with a fork."
"PCP = pineapple, coconut, pecan"
"Family-owned since Pat & Inez Newcomb opened the place in 1952, Ed & Kay's is located just south of Benton on the access road to I-30. It has won statewide awards not only for pie, but for best coffee and best waitresses."
