Food find: Festival food

It's that time of year when every little hamlet on Earth has a festival. It may be the same carnival rides from the same company every single time, the food changes. I've had some poor corndogs so I thought I'd try something else at the Crystal Lake Gala.
What I found was these delicious waffle fries from Fire Bar and Grill, located in Crystal Lake. I've heard a lot about the place, so I thought I'd grab a bite at their stand at the Gala.

I got some chicken strips because I was in a bit of a rush and I wanted to go for a cheaper option. At $5, the chicken strips and fries were a gem. The waffle fries were crisp but not overcooked and just the right amount of saltiness. The chicken strips were also well-seasoned and crunchy on the exterior without being dry.

My only complaint -- the honey mustard. It was a bit watery and had no spunk.

Oh well, they were just chicken strips. I'm going to have to stop by their Angela Lane location to try out their three-appetizer plate or grilled-steak panini. Mmmm.
