"Get off the highway for awhile at least and past the fast food chains! As we headed through North Carolina toward the beach, we avoided the highway as long as we could, and found this lovely little spot in Biscoe, NC. It isn't fancy and the menu is simple but the food was fresh and authentic Mexican cuisine. The beer was icy cold and the shrimp burritos and chicken burritos were not made yesterday and the fresh wedges of avocado and lime on the small salad that accompanied our lunch made for a lovely lunch." -- Trip Advisor
"What a cool little place! Came across this little market while on a road trip. Friendly staff combined with a very wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, jellies, baked good, different kinds of honey, candies, and much more made this a very welcome diversion during a long, dreary drive. Much of what they have is locally grown. We picked up some gorgeous looking tomatoes that I can't wait to try and some beautiful fresh peaches!" - Laura J. - Yelp
Fried Pies are a Southern treat that has been around for a long time. Every morning the housewife would use the scrap biscuit dough left from breakfast and shape it into a half-moon pie filled with a fruit filling (usually made from dried peaches or apples). Then the treat would be sent to work with the husband and to school with the kids.
Karen's Pies are made daily by hand. Each pie has a generous amount of homemade fillings. The filling is placed onto sweet, flacky dough. The dough is sealed using a fork to crimp & then fried. Find Karen's Pies by clicking on the link in this post or by visiting PR Moore's Market in Biscoe NC.
