    There is nothing to dislike about "Fried Picnic on a Stick": spicy chicken, pickles, and tator tots fried and dipped in ranch, BBQ, or honey mustard sauce. It's enough for a meal at the fair!

    Everything's bigger in Texas including the state fair. In addition to the delicious fried foods, rides, long lines, the obligatory Red River Rivalry game falls on a weekend during the fair.

    Surprisingly delicious little snack, "Fried Mexican Fire Cracker" contains shredded chicken, cheese, and jalapeños in a fresh-made masa dough— nice flavor change-up from the food coated in fry batter.

    "Chicken Fried Cactus Bites" with jalapeño ranch dipping sauce or agave nectar sauce were spicier than most of us liked. Closest comparison is like eating spicy fried green beans.

    Three-cheese mac 'n' cheese is baked, battered, and fried, then placed on a beef party on a bun, served with waffle fries. From a foodie standpoint, it tastes like 3 foods from the grocery freezer.

    Pretty terrible Fourth of July show. Random radio show playing on full blast for entire fireworks display, not sure what was going on. No quality control - never saw one official the entire time.
