If you were ever looking for a chance to gorge upon a plentiful feast of food, then the food options at the Lane County Fair are a good bet.
Here are some options for those looking to absolutely ravage their stomachs — and possibly their wallets.
For the carnivores at this year’s county fair, Bubba’s BBQ Smoky Mountain Cuisine is one of a meat-centric franchises where visitors can truly pig out. Barbecue pulled-pork sandwiches, pulled-pork baked potatoes, deluxe pulled-pork nachos — it’s a dream for a meat-lover, but a nightmare for your arteries.
Brownie’s Pronto Pups from Rockaway Beach, Oregon, feature corn dogs, a crutch of carnie cuisine. Aside from their main corn dogs — the various forms of which include spicy, super and pickle — Pups also serves veggie pups and zucchini pups.
Other options for carnie carnivore include CT’s Food 4 Less, The Grill, The Great Philly Steak and Walla-Walla Burger & BBQ.
Alternatively, vegetarian options also include vegetarian wraps from Greek Grill and fruit salad from Sara’s Mexican Food, according to a list of this year’s food options.
International cuisine, but in Eugene
Want to chow down on food from abroad? In addition to fruit, Sara’s Mexican Food, an out-of-state food cart, serves burritos, quesadillas, tacos, and sweet and savory crepes. Greek Grill will be offering gyros (pronounced YEE-ros, for those hesitant to order one for fear of embarrassment), spanakopita, hummus and pita plates, salads and dolmas, which are stuffed grape leaves.
Treats and sweets
For those with a sweet tooth, Larsen’s Ice Cream will be serving milkshakes, sundaes, ice cream bars and cones, frozen bananas, frozen New York cheesecakes and root beer floats. O-Gee Donuts, a Washington-based traveling franchise, will serve donuts, donut sundaes, frozen bananas, smores on sticks and nachos.
