Henry's Sold

Henry's in West Jefferson, Ohio has new owners. We stopped there this afternoon on our way back from Crabill's in Urbana and learned that it was sold nearly a year ago. We picked up a couple of slices of pie to go -- Butterscotch for me, Strawberry-Rhubarb for Lisa.
 
They now have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HenrysRestaurant43162/…

It really breaks my heart to report this but the two pieces of pie were terrible.  Michael's butterscotch:  crust very wet and falling apart, butterscotch filling almost tasteless, the meringue on top was not bad.
My strawberry-rhubarb filling was like one big blob of a bunch of red stuff smooshed together.  My crust was not too bad but certainly not what I would call even good.
On a scale of 1-10 I would rate both pieces a 2.

That's terrible news. 
 
I made it there twice. We were blown away by both the coconut pie and the crust of the fruit pie we had the first time we went, but the last time, they didn't have any of the flavors I was most interested in trying because we got there a little too late in the day.  We had been planning on spending the night in the Columbus-West Jefferson area the next time we visit our friends in Indiana so we could get to Henry's early the next morning and have a full selection of pie.  I guess that plan is out the window now.

I'm afraid it is. I asked lleechef whether she thought we ought to go back and give it another try and she said if they got those two so wrong there was no point in going back.

In reading their facebook page reviews they are all still raving about the pie...are they just newcomers or shills?

Beats me. We can only speak to our own experiences. It was amazingly good each time we were there before. It wasn't good yesterday.

Two things....
 
Perhaps a second visit is in order.  Maybe the head-baker was off in anticipation of a busy holiday baking season approaching.  Perhaps they were day old, were refrigerated multiple times, etc.  
 
Second, and more important, I stand ready, willing and able to guide guests - new & old - through the nuances of The World Famous Chicago Pie Triangle or WFCPT.  Composed of Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits, Hoosier Mama Pie Shop (original location) and Spinning J, I can guarantee a fantastic pie eating experience!  Each of these has been taste selected after numerous field trips and the quality, variety and atmosphere are unmatched anywhere in an equal area.  Reservations accepted - #wfcpt #worldfamouschicagopietriangle

I really have no desire to go back.  I can make my own pie!  Tomorrow is going to be mud pie.
