South Texas State Fair Food Guide

What’s cooking for Southeast Texas foodies at the 2014 State Fair?

A mix of old and new carnival classics with lots of Cajun and Southeast Texas flavor thrown in.

Here’s your South Texas State Fair Food Guide with highlights chosen by EatDrinkSETX.com food critics:

1. J N J Concessions.

  • Fried Strawberries. Hmmm. It doesn’t seem like a delicate strawberry would fair well, under frying, so this one has us curious.
  • Churros. A street food classic in places like San Antonio, but less common here. A great carnival treat.
  • Fry Bread w/ topping. Fry bread is common at Native American gatherings and at festivals in West Texas and New Mexico. Fry Bread toppings is new to us, but we’ll definitely give it a try.
  • Sundae Cake Fries. Hmmm. I guess we’ll just have to check it out!
