Original Fried Pie Shop

ORIGINAL FRIED PIE SHOP There's nothing like a fried pie, filled with delicious fruit or spiced meat, with a hot, flakey brown crust. And there is nothing like that at this Jacksonville eatery, a chain that assumes folks want an all-pie meal, a pepperoni fried pie followed by a cherry fried pie, for instance. With instant tea on the side. Maybe it wasn't instant, but it sure tasted that way. Perhaps, under different circumstances, you could pull off a pie-pie meal, but these mitt-sized mistakes are a) room temperature, b) made with a pale greasy dough and c) filled with, in our case, what tasted like cool canned peaches. We tried the egg and cheese fried pie too — all cheap cheese, running all over the plate, yellow mellow custard. How could anyone think they could pass this stuff in a place like Arkansas, where we know a good fried pie when we see one? In a word: Ugh. 1321 T.P. White Drive. 501-985-0508. BLD.

  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
