Fried Pies

Yup, that's the actual name for a relatively new restaurant in College Station.  Located close to the intersection of University Drive and Highway 6.

This used to be a Sonic Express location at the gas station.

The menu is very straight-forward with a selection of sweet or savory pies.  Each is available prepped on site as you order and cooked up or, for a lower price, you can take a frozen one home and heat it yourself.  The service was very friendly.

The drink selection is interesting because the majority are sweetened with sugar instead of HFCS. Diet Coke, of course, is an exception as it's sweetened artificially. 

I ordered the apple pecan pie, aka The Peter Griffin, and took it home. It kind of looks like a giant empanada.

The crust was good. Nice blend of tender and flaky. And the filling was delicious.

Wah-wah.  The problem was that the pie just kind of sat in my stomach. I was ill for hours after. [Image is from Google Images]
Will we be back?  Most likely not.  A stomachache is not a great way to make an impression. The pie was good, tummy didn't like it one bit.  I know others have tried this place.  How was it for you?


  1. Moose brought home some apple pies one night when I was having one of my lows. And I'm with you. They're tasty, but it just sits there. I think it might be something about the crust.

  2. Katie here, owner of "Fried Pie Shop"! I just wanted to let you guys know that as of August 3rd, we've gotten rid of the franchise. Now it's locally owned and operated (called Nana's Fried Pies) with our very own recipes. So instead of having a stomach ache, our new pies are lighter yet more satisfying. I think you'll be able to leave the Tums at home after trying our new recipe.

    We also have other items now if you aren't interested in something fried...

    1. Katie, Thanks for the update! We'll have to give it another try.
