    Let me know if you need a food taster for next year's fair. I can also carry your beer. I work damn cheap, too.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    LAST DAY OF THE 2010 IOWA STATE FAIR

    This is Kevin McGrath of :: The Best Around Concessions :: Home

    They have been in business for 33 years, 15 of them at the Iowa State Fair. They have 12 units, 4 of them were at this years fair.



    This is a couple of my favorite people at the fair. Pam is from Tennessee and her daughter, Michelle lives in Georgia. They always have smile and a kind word.



    I always get their Cajun chicken on a stick. The batter has just the right amount of flavour and heat.

    QUESADILLA JUNCTION

    Back to Quesadilla Junction for another visit.



    This is Oliver Regal, owner of Regal Concessions with a steak and egg quesadilla.



    All of the employees here were fast and friendly. They could single handed take on a dozen orders, chat with you and not miss a beat. This is their first year for the Iowa State Fair. The location is just west of the main food court area. Rumor has it their spot is going to see a lot of development around it, making it a prime location.

    This is my newestfavoritistfairfood. I am looking forward to their return next year.

    A couple of friends joined me for a bit of the craziness.

    Robin and Rob



    Rob got caught by the Iowa State Fair mascots. We were right next to a stage with a band playing, so they started dancing. It was all I could do to hold the camera and snap a few pics!

    LOUISIANA CAJUN COOKIN'

    I had seen people walking around with a huge chicken breast on a stick. They directed me to...



    These were huge, at least one pound. And the only food on a stick to have a roll on the end.

    Hold On

    Appearing at Steer N Stein

    The HOLD ON Band

    It has been awhile since I have seen this band and forgot how much fun they are. They even pose while playing without missing a beat!



    I was having such a great time I had to sit down and enjoy.



    This is a band that I will definitely follow here in town!

    Notes

    2010 Iowa State Fair

    The answer is, Yes, I ate all of that.

    Funniest comment: "Are you full yet?"

    All of the food and music/entertainment was top notch.

    The people working the fair are all there for the fun, and it is non stop for 10 days.
