OC Weekly's Description

Pie-Not is an Australian restaurant in Costa Mesa that offers authentic Aussie meat pies: freshly baked, kept warm under heat lamps in a display case, and ready for takeout. There are a dozen different kinds here, each titled to make you grin. Most are variations on a ground beef-filled base-model pie called “Dog’s Eye.” When peas and carrots are added, with mashed potatos sealing the top, a Dog’s Eye becomes a “Drover,” a concoction that’s eats exactly like a shepherd’s pie. The “Shroomin’” is a Dog’s Eye with mushrooms in it. And when Cheddar and bacon bits are involved, it becomes “That’ll Do Pig.” But if any Aussie ex-pats have any doubt Pie-Not is actually Australian, there’s this: It offers lamingtons, a confection that resembles a brownie crossed with a Hostress Sno Ball, but is simply a square of soft sponge cake that has been encased in a slightly crunchy, fudge-like shell of chocolate icing, then covered in a furry coat of desiccated coconut.

    Use your hands if you're "piehard" fans!

    The "Rockin Chook" is super delicious!! Coffee too!

    Everything is good, but get there early. The best pies seem to sell out fast
