This semester, the student body at Texas State University collectively voted Pie Society its favorite place to grab a slice of pizza.

Long-time manager, Ceara Fragoso, has partially attributed the restaurant’s success to the fact that staff use fresh ingredients and make everything in house.

“Service is a really big deal to us,” Fragoso said. “We like to treat people as if they’re guests in our home, not just another dollar sign. So our relationship with our customers is very important.”

Fragoso has worked at Pie Society ever since it was initially opened back in June of 2014. The restaurant is owned and operated by local entrepreneurs Benjie Ackerman, and brothers Seth and Chase Katz.

“We get a pretty mixed crowd in here,” Fragoso said of the eatery’s clientele. “At lunch time, we have a lot of students and professors coming in. We get more families and out-of-towners in the evening.”

Pie Society is located at 700 North LBJ Drive, and is open until midnight on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

“I’ve been here four or five times already, and this is only my first semester in San Marcos,” said Gustav Swift, economics freshman. “Last time my family came to town, I brought them to eat here. We’re from New York, so we’re pizza snobs, and this is good pizza.”
