Re:Fried Pie Stands Mon, 06/1/09 10:38 PM (permalink)
A young couple just recently opened a fried-pie place in Oklahoma City at I-35 and Hefner Road, just south of the Frontier City Amusement Park. I haven't tried them yet, but they seem busy. Here's their website.

There's also one along I-35 near Turner Falls called "Nancy's Original Fried Pies" that has excellent pies. If you're traveling the interstate, you can even call ahead on your cell phone and they'll have your order ready when you get there. He also has a franchise location in OKC at NW 50th and Portland.

      There is a fruit stand in Deep Gap, NC at the beginning of Old 421. Very good fruit pies nice crust when fresh.

        There is a place in West Fork, AR that makes them and ships them to restaurants and conveniences stores and they are great! I know they are in all the states that surround them. They are called Letha's Pies. The crust is flaky and light and the coconut cream is to die for! The others are good too but coconut cream is my favorite.

          Welcome to Roadfood!  Thanks for the tip on Letha's Pies.  I will be driving through that area on vacation in a little more than a month and I will do my best to stop in.

              Earlier in this thread, you mentioned Mama's Fried Pies in Wagoner, OK.  Do you know if they are still open?  I can't find much information out about them.

                I learned to make fried pies at home from my mother.  They're actually quite simple.  Pie dough, cut into a round, filled 1/2 way with your filling of choice, fold the other side over, crimp with a fork, fry and dust with XXX sugar.  My favorite is fresh blackberry picked from the thickets next to my mother's house.

                  Don't know if you've tried them but Popeyes has a pretty good fried pie, either apple or sweet potato.

                    Unfortunately Mama's is closed--think that Mama retired and the kids just couldn't keep the pies up to par and they lost interest

                      Thanks for the reply tiki.  Too bad that they ended up closing down.  I will cross them off the list for my Oklahoma trip.

                          I was telling Michael about fried pies and how my mother and I always made them at home.  He did not believe me....make fried pies at HOME?  So when I get back there, I will make some fried pies.......bb......mainly for you.  So what kind of filling do you prefer?

                              Well, I know better than to pass up a good thing.  How about fruit flavors, like peach, apricot or apple?  Those would be my preferences.  But, I imagine anything you make will be excellent.  Thanks for thinking of me lleechef!

                                  If y'all ever get around the north GA area, specifically Ellijay and Blue Ridge, there are tons of places that have fried pies. Most of the orchards have pies made inhouse with apples and peaches they picked! They have other fruits as well and I think maybe some cream pies like banana and cocoanut?  Mercier in Blue Ridge and R & A in Ellijay are a couple to get you started. And you can visit The Varsity for apple and peach and as mentioned (not sure if they still have them) Walmart has ones just like McD's did when they were good.
