I was cruising down Campbell this morning and spied The Original Fried Pie Place sitting in a dungy strip mall in Richardson. Inside business is no nonsense: cash only and fried pies. They make ten sweet fruit and cream pies, five sugar-free, and nine savory breakfast, lunch, and dinner pies. I bought peach, cherry, and chocolate.
If you love fried pies, you will like these. I found them to be very heavy on gooey filling and light on fruit, and the fruit used was canned or frozen, certainly not fresh. The chocolate was basically fried pudding. Most of the people in the office liked them— all of the pies were gone 20 minutes after I set them out. Hey, it was noon and I had a box of free food.
I’ll be by there again in a couple of weeks and will try the Polish sausage, potato, and cheese. The original shop is in Oklahoma City. The Richardson store opened about 9 months ago.
