Local flavor. Excellent Pasties Very happy we stopped here. Service was friendly: once everyone came in for lunch rush: only 1 server and it took a while. Will come back again.

Being from Florida my family had no idea what Pasties were so after checking around with the locals found out Bessie’s was the Best in town. My family tried both the chicken and beef Pasties which were an incredible delight. The dough was so flakey...More

This was our first trip to Michigan and our first time eating a Pastie. Bessie's were delicious and we would definitely recommend them. We are wondering why we don't have them in NC!

This was the first time I had a pastie. I opted for the original with gravy and coleslaw. It was delicious! I have driven by this place so many times and never stopped. I am so glad we did.

Always our favorite pasties. Most like those my mother in law made. Perfect crust perfect filling and as much ketchup as needed. Worth the stop and bring a cooler to take some home.

We always stop her for pasties. In fact, on the way home, we call a couple of days ahead of time and place and order for for a dozen frozen to take home. Wonderful every time!

Pasties were delicious. Served with gravy and/or sour cream. It was quite warm in restaurant though. Not sure if they didn’t have AC or just didn’t have it on. Service was excellent. Not many other menu choices so don’t come here unless you want pasties,

Never had pasties before and we were glad we chose Bessie's! We were on our way back from Castle Rock and decided to stop. Great flavor and since I love gravy on almost anything, it was even better!

Went to Bessie’s Pasties for dinner again, had the same excellent, freshly baked beef pasty. The crust is the flakiest I have ever eaten, the filling was perfect. I love mom and pop restaurants with their friendly cheerful atmosphere and the staff that makes you...More
