If you're ever in the San Mateo County you have to make a stop by Heidi's Pie for a slice. Our favorites are the cheese cake / sour cream pie (yes, it's a cheese cake with a dollop of sour cream on top) and the apple pie with sour cream on top. They have yummy berry pies as well. It's... More

Seasonal pie selection, there's sweet and savoury ones. Pie slices are good for sharing. Friendly staff. Was here for supper.

Sooo much food and so good! Definitely would come back! Being from out of town, this was a good recommendation.

Having driven by Heidi's for 21/2 years wondering how a pie place can be open 24 hours a day and survive in the tough Bay Area market (had to be great pies, right?) I finally found out. Feeling somewhat guilty just going for pie, we made a meal of it. The food is decent - great value in the sense... More

I went in not sure what to expect. I found a nice comfortable little place. I sat by the window, cuz its a seat yourself. The waitress was very comfortable, I mean she was handling her job comfortably. It felt like I was a regular customer although this was my first time there. The pies were excellent ( I took... More

We did not eat at the restaurant. Stopped only to buy a couple of pies at the suggestion of our friends. We got the blueberry pie, one with sour cream and one without. The two average size pies cost almost $40 including tax. They're good but overrated for the money.

I've been going to Heidi's for over 35 years. But the new owners are pricing the food to the point where it's not worth going there anymore. The food is still consistently good and the pies are great, even though the pie menu has been drastically reduced in the last few years. But $15 for a plain apple pie???? Pluses... More

We found Heidi's to be on the low end of the numerous diners we've visited. In our group of six, only the grilled halibut was found to be really good. The country fried steak was dry, the liver & onions was mostly left on the plate, teriyaki chicken was left unfinished and the fish-and-chips was more like boxed chicken fingers.... More
