We visited the Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Sulphur, OK this weekend. After hiking and swimming in this beautiful area we were hungry in a way you can only be after playing outside all day in summer. Feeling starving and excited to visit Arbuckle Mountain Fried Pies for the first time made me temporarily loose my brain.
I was surprised that more than half their menu was not sweet pies but savory pies. So I ordered us 4 pies for dinner and felt it was obvious we needed 4 pies for breakfast the next morning. At that point I felt we were obligated to try some dessert pies. So I rounded it up to a dozen.
A DOZEN! Who needs a dozen fried pies?!?!
*****In my defense, my friend I was with lost her brain temporarily too. She had full intentions to get a dinner pie. When it was her turn at the register though she blurted out “CHOCOLATE!”****
I started to think my decision was mildly nuts as I handed over my debit card. I almost backed out and changed my order. Almost, but I didn’t. We waited 10 minutes while they made all of our pies fresh.
My kids, even the picky eater, ended up finishing every last bite of their pizza pies. My spinach, mushroom, and potato combo was like getting a hug from a hand held pot pie. If you are camping in the area, the breakfast pies would be the perfect way to start your active day. Needless to say the fruit and sweet pies were amazing as well.
I was in such a food coma after dinner and tired from wrangling kids all day that I almost left my box with our 8 remaining fried pies on the table! Thankfully my friend saw it so I didn’t leave without our small fortune worth of pies.
What made these pies stand out is that they tasted 100% fresh. No canned or fake ingredients here, no sir. These are the made from scratch real deal, and they ALL taste like it too.
While these pies get my full stamp of approval they also come with a warning from me that your judgment may temporarily be clouded due to deliciousness.
