Keep Dallas Observer Free

Photos: The Fried Food Finalists Coming to The State Fair

It's salty. It's alcoholic. That's right, it's, now famous, FRIED BEER!

You knew you were ready for it. Though it didn't win "Best Taste" at the Big Tex Choice Awards (Fried Frito Pie did...mmm...fried chili), it took home the "Most Creative" fried fair. The good thing: the fried delicacies of the Big Tex Choice Awards, including Fried Chocolate and Fried Margaritas, are not a fleeting thing. They'll all be at the State Fair come this fall.

So in celebration of our love of friedness--we created a slideshow to preview the upcoming crusty goods. Jump over to slideshows to check out Sara Kerens delicious photos of Fried Beer and Fried Pop Tarts and such. Also, after the jump, we have some teasers for those who just can't wait.

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
