All-rounder at Ross Creek Store, Aaron Lucken, said the school holidays had helped his family owned business, with customers racing to get the lamb shank pie.   

"Our lamb shank pie won the Zinc 96.1 competition quite a few times.    "It's one of our most popular pies," Mr Lucken said.

The family owned service station between Gympie and Tin Can Bay is leading the poll for the best pie shop in the region.

But there is a week of voting to make sure your favourite wins.  

Mr Lucken said he worked with a great team. "We're always working to improve the range of options for our customers," he said.

"We've got 12 different pies to choose from.   

From vegetarian to steak pies, to normal steak, bacon and cheese.

What is more Australian than a lamb shank pie?"  

The Ross Creek Store is owned by Fred and Karen Lucken.   

Voting finishes next Friday, July 19, with the winner will be announced on July 22.
