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.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
