FLETCHER’S CORNY DOGS

No trip to the State Fair of Texas would be complete without a Fletcher’s Corny Dog. Fletcher’s serves up regular corn dogs, jalapeño and cheese stuffed corn dogs, turkey dogs, and even a veggie dog! All fried to perfection with their famous batter.

FRIED CHICKEN FETTUCCINE ALFREDO BALL

Just as described, a fried ball of chicken fettuccine alfredo topped with alfredo sauce, parmesan cheese, and fresh parsley. This delightful concoction comes with a side of asparagus and a slice of a garlic parmesan baguette.

CAJUN CRAB BOMBS

Are you noticing a trend here? You can pretty much get anything and everything fried at the State Fair of Texas and that includes crab. The crab bombs reminded me of a crab cake meets a hushpuppy, and they were worth every penny. Perfectly seasoned and the remoulade sauce for dipping was to die for.
