    Does anyone know who carries our favorite pies from "Anita's and Kutchie's" Key Lime Pie Factory ? We have lived here in the Sweetwater area for 2-years and have looked every where we can think of with no luck. We are willing to drive up-to 100 miles to get our grubby little fingers on a few of those awesome key lime pies.
    It's hard to believe that no place in Sweetwater carries Anita and Kutchie's famous pies. If anyone can help us in locating a place to buy their pies, we will make-it worth your while and bring back a couple of the delicious pies for you. Thank you for you're concern.

    Randy Newman,

    I Almost Forgot To Mention That Kutchie's Key West Also Serves The World's Greatest Cheese Burgers Too. And He Will Cook Them Rare or Med. Rare If That's What Turns You On......Tracy Burns

    We Always Get Our Key Lime Pies Where Jimmy Buffett Gets His. At Kutchie's Key West Kutcharitaville Cafe
    In Asheville. Jimmy Told Us Years Ago That Kutchie Pelaez Makes His Favorite Key Lime Pie. We Tried Kutchie's Famous Key Lime Pies and Have Been Hooked On Them Ever Since. That's Been About
    20-Years Or So. His Pies Are Just The Best Of The
    Best.
