Featured Big Tex Choice Award Finalists
Want to try something that is deep-friend, bacon-covered, battered, buttered and gift-wrapped in a package of fat and sugar? Check out today’s featured finalist for the 2015 Big Tex Choice Awards.
Chicken Fried Lobster with Champagne Gravy: Prepare to hold your pinkies out while you taste this delicious dish. Lobster is here at the State Fair of Texas! This traditional seafood delicacy has traded out its white table cloth for a bit of Fair flair. This seafood spread includes an entire lobster tail, breaded and deep fried to perfection. Served with a rich sauce combining lemon butter and champagne gravy, the Chicken Fried Lobster is not your typical carnival concoction.
