If you’ve got a craving for the kind of sticky, fried and otherwise decadent food that only a true Texas State Fair can offer, stop by Texaz Grill Sept. 26-Oct. 19 to sample the State Fair Menu.
It’s only natural that the Valley’s most Texas-centric steakhouse gets into the State Fair spirit with such Lone Star State classics as “Fletcher’s Original State Fair Corny Dog” and the iconic Frito Pie.
The Corny Dog ($6), a State Fair of Texas staple since 1942, comes with two servings accompanied by a bag of Frito’s. The Frito Pie ($5) is said to be invented in the 1930s by Daisy Dean Doolin, mother of the founder of the Frito-Lay company. Texaz Grill’s version features homemade chili presented in a small bag of Fritos corn chips, topped with onions, cheese and served with a plastic spoon.
To satisfy that sweet tooth, try the Blue Bell Cotton Candy Ice Cream ($1 per scoop) or some Cotton Candy Lemonade ($7), a cocktail made with cotton candy vodka, lemonade, Blue Curacao and garnished with a lemon slice.
