Favorite Faire Food

What is your favorite fair food? I am the F&B Director for 2 faires and would like to hear your thoughts. Most of our patrons like food you can walk and eat with. Steak-on-a-Stake etc. We do have seating, which I prefer, so I do incorporate sit=down food in the menu.

I'm a sucker for hot dogs at fairs and ballgames.

There's just something about them, especially at a game.

The smoked turkey legs are what I look forward to most at faire. Most definitely!

How about those deep fried sauerkraut balls? I love gyros too! Also, those cups stuffed with shoestring french fries, doused with salt and vinegar.

Red face

Corn dogs
Ice cream
Onion burgers ( with walla walla onions)

Our big fair also has a booth where you can buy pie.
They make the best pecan caramel pie that we've ever
had. I'd love to get a hold of that recipe.

me too, John. that's the only place I will eat them. Somehow they become delicious sitting in the bleachers with a nice warmish beer to wash it down. Oh, and mustard only, please.

When I lived in Tulsa, and went to the Tulsa State Fair, I always made a bee-line for the closest stand that sold smoked turkey legs. It seemed like every other guy would be walking around with a hand wrapped around a turkey leg, happily gnawing away.

After I walk that off, I would find a Funnel Cake stand. I can't really eat a full-sized one myself, so I don't normally get one unless someone is with me.

My DW, PeppA, goes nuts over curly fries with salt and vinegar, corndogs, lemonade, and a bunch of other stuff.
