Iron Mountains Best Pasty!
Prime Pasty King has been family owned and operated for over 50 years and our specialty is the Yooper Pasty. If you do not know what a Yooper is, it is someone who comes from or lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Our secret family recipe is our take on the traditional Cornish pasty and is the sole reason for our success. Our business started in Iron River Michigan and operated there for almost 20 years. We then moved to the Iron Mountain, Kingsford area in 1986 and started serving Dickinson County customers our gourmet pasties.
Our pasties are moist and buttery with a tender crust that melts in your mouth. No biscuit crust here! Even with the tender crust, our pasties hold together very well and are a true hand held food. Our pasties are around a pound of food and are sure to satisfy your hunger. We pride ourselves on being the only place you can still get a pound of hot food for $5.25 or less!
In 1992 we decided to compete in the Upper Peninsula Potato Show Best Pasty Contest. Our pasties took top place. We then repeated the showing in 1993 and took top place again. You can see the awards to the right (They will display on the bottom if you are on mobile). The contest has not been held since 1993, but we are confident that our pasties would do well in any pasty contest they were entered in. You can rest assured you are getting the best award winning pasty in the upper peninsula.
We have since shipped our pasties to all 50 states here in the USA and some of our pasties have even made it to a few other countries. Drop in and check out our pasty map to see where our pasties have roamed.
When you order your pasties, ask about our pasty club. The club consists of a stamp card. When you get 20 stamps on your card, you get a free pasty!
