Super carrot cake

Hartley's pork pies have been a staple in the Fall River area for many years and I have enjoyed them since I was a kid. They have new owner's but still have the same delicious recipe. I am impressed with the fact they now make delicious desserts especially the carrot cake.

This is a great place to pick up meat pies for a very reasonable price. I have had the Pork, Chorizo, Chicken and Chili pies. I liked all EXCEPT the chili. It was SWEET! We asked about it and they said they put brown sugar in it. Chili should not be sweet. The rest were very good.

Went on Sunday and it was closed :-( I was looking forward to eat here after reading the reviews. Make sure you call to check if they are open. Gave three stars to not punish.

One of the best places going. They have been is business for over 100 years. The buffalo chicken pie is better then I can make. They now make pastry, the prices are great and the young girl that works in there couldn't be any nicer. They have a very old cash register. No ATM or credit cards but they do... More

These savory pork pies have been around forever and the recipe hasn't changed. Their chourico pies are my favorite. My only complaint is that their crust (though delicious) tends to give my sensitive system heartburn. Perhaps it's made with lard?? It doesn't stop me from indulging, though... I just take a Pepcid first! It's not a restaurant but a take-out... More

Not a restaurant, but take out, take home, take to work.I have been eating theses pies for over 50 years. They are a Fall River staple just as good now as they were way back when. Nice variety of pies now too, along with stuffies and pastry. Best warmed up in the oven or toaster oven, not in the microwave.... More

Hartley's pork pies were a Fall River standard for my wife's family but as a transplant from Rhode Island I had only heard about them. I go for the Pork or Chourico, (the Portuguese national sausage,not to be confused with Mexican Chorizo), but occasionally will have a Buffalo Chicken. Whatever I get the crust is perfectly browned, the filling as... More

Their eponymous pork pie which remains unchanged for a century is something really simple and really special. It harkens back to a time when the city was a bustling hive of productive mills and commerce. Give it a try. It is a ball of pork embedded in a cup of flaky crust. You can remove the top, drink the liquid... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor and had to try it while visiting the Lizzie Borden house. It is very tiny. Almost missed it. They only sell meat pies and desserts. We got a chicken and pork pie. No seats, so we sat in the car to eat them, but we didn't mind. It was such a treat. The best little... More
