HUNTINGTON — It’s the event for which many current and former Huntington residents have been waiting all year — Jim’s Steak and Spaghetti House has announced the dates for its 2019 Strawberry Pie Week.

“Countdown to Strawberry Pie Week has begun!” the restaurant posted on its Facebook page Thursday.

Strawberry Pie Week, when the restaurant sells thousands of slices of its legendary and limited-edition strawberry pie, is set for May 14-18 this year, according to the restaurant.

The annual event that draws long lines of people to the 5th Avenue restaurant has always started the Tuesday after Mother’s Day, according to owner Jimmie Carder.

During the course of five days in 2018, Jim’s patrons ate 10,668 slices of pie from 1,778 pies, Carder reported — just 30 slices short of the record set in 2016.
