Walker’s Fried Pies & Barbecue – Ellijay, GA


0927091356 Walker’s Fried Pies & Barbecue – Ellijay, GA

We took a wrong turn while searching for a place to eat in Dahlonega and ended up on highway 52, headed towards Ellijay. That’s when we came upon Walker’s Fried Pies & Barbecue. Being fans of the fried pies from the Sunrise Country Store, we were intrigued, and hungry, so we pulled in.

This was an order-from-the-counter type of place, with a porch attached to a trailer and a portable smoke pit, which, of course, was very promising. We ordered our usual, I having the pulled pork and Jennifer having the chicken. Both came with fries and tea and as usual, I added the Brunswick stew.

The tea was good, but not memorable, and the fries were typical golden crinkles, also good, but nothing special. The sandwiches were very good and we both enjoyed the sauce. The interior was authentic, down-home southern with records on the wall, although the restroom arrangement was a bit odd, and our table was next to the refrigerator, which held various buckets of stew and chopped meats. Speaking of the stew, neither of us cared for it very much.

Of course, we ordered the fried pies, 4 actually, which turned out to be very large, but not quite as good as the ones we got from the Sunrise store, even though they apparently have won some awards, which were proudly displayed near the menus.

If you’re hungry, outside Ellijay, and just want some traditional southern barbecue, this place will do, just avoid the stew.
