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.
