Area chain restaurant offering free slice of pie


A free piece of pie may be among the sweetest ways to say ‘thanks.’

O’Charley’s restaurant is offering slices of its signature Ooey-Gooey Caramel Pie as well as its new Country Apple Pie, Double-Crust Peach Pie, French Silk Pie and Southern Pecan Pie as part of its “Free Pie Wednesdays.”

Richard Exton Jr., spokesperson for the Nashville, Tenn.-based chain restaurant, said O’Charley’s customers in the Dayton, Springfield and Richmond, Ind. areas will be among the first to take advantage of the offer that starts Wednesday, April 17.

“The area you guys are in has been really good to O’Charley’s so we wanted to say thanks by letting you try it out,” he said.

The offer has only been released in Chattanooga, Tenn.

O’Charley’s Inc. includes 213 restaurants in 17 Southeastern and Midwestern states.

The pieces of pie - regularly about $4 a slice - will be available free of charge on Wednesdays with the purchase of an entree.

The pies can also be purchased whole.

Here are descriptions of the pies from O’Charley’s:

Ooey-Gooey Caramel Pie — signature dessert made with a graham cracker crust and creamy caramel topped with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and pecans.

Country Apple Pie — “Old fashioned” double-crust apple pie made with sweet, crisp Michigan apples blended with delicate spices.

Double-Crust Peach Pie — Our tender, flaky double crust filled with sun-ripened freestone peaches.

French Silk Pie — Semi-sweet chocolates blended into a fluffy, mousse-like filling in a flaky pastry crust, topped with real whipped cream and milk chocolate shavings.

Southern Pecan Pie — Delicious Southern classic made with butter and brown sugar and then topped with a layer of pecan halves.
