It’s fair time in Texas. Which basically means cold weather, the auto show, livestock, rides, tons of food…a lot of food and of course Big Tex!
Deep Fried Mac and Cheese: Amazing. Absolutely. I would go back for this surprising delight with it’s crunchy outside and smooth cheesy-ness. I thought it would be a bit on the dry side, like school mac and cheese, but it had a creaminess to it that rolled my eyes back into my head.
Deep Fried Beer: Not impressed at all. I returned the order and asked for my tickets back. The pasta was cut ravioli style and had only a doughy consistantcy with no discernible beer flavor.
Deep Fried Biscuits and Gravy: Interesting texture, not as crispy on the outside as I had expected. It had a nice gravy filling, but the bread wasn’t a traditional biscuit, but a a slider bun. Personally, I thought it was a bit salty and the bread overwhelmed the gravy component.
Deep Fried Brownies: Served in three blocks, it was absolutely one of the top tastes. Still creamy with a defined chocolate taste that wasn’t overpowered by any fried component. Drizzled with chocolate syrup and softly powdered. This was worth seconds.
Candy Coated Chocolate Covered Bacon: I was truly expecting a hot piece of bacon. What I got was cold , limp, bacon dipped in sweet chocolate and sprinkles. A serving is about four pieces, but I think two would have be enough. I would have even preferred a crispy cold bacon dipped in chocolate and not the four pieces of cold fat.
Fletcher’s Corny Dogs: What can I say? This is truly the best corny dog I have ever had, the batter is thick, the dog is a managable size and topped with mustard, you can’t go wrong.
