Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of breakfast and lunch fare and fried pies at Hutch’s Pie & Sandwich Shop in Weatherford.
Launched as a one-man fried-pie-slinging operation at the height of the Great Depression, Hutch’s Pie & Sandwich Shop now provides hot and cold sandwiches and toasty fried desserts to packs of roaming, hungry Texans. Stop in before work for a ham-and-cheese roll ($2.55) or an egg-and-cheese breakfast pie ($2.05) paired with bacon, sausage, or jalapeño-infused sausage. Pocket sandwiches ($4.75) come on a hot loaf of pita bread that’s perfect for warming up tongues that spend most of their time stuck to frozen poles, and cold sandwiches ($3.95) are served on white or wheat and include centerpieces such as roast beef, chicken salad, or turkey. Fried pies are available in flavors including chocolate, lemon, cherry, and pineapple ($1.35 each), and unlike their unfried brethren, don’t need to be freeze-dried and served with a miniature American flag to enjoy.
