My neighbor raves about Krusty Pups, so I made the corndog stand my first stop after Brian and I arrived at the fair. There are a few places to get the treats, including a funky '50sish silver building.
My pup cost $4. For an extra $6, I could add fries and a drink. (I passed.)
The first bite revealed something I suspected before I bought it: the corn dog was more corn (batter) than dog. That that there's anything wrong with that. I'm of the belief that a good crab cake has more cake than crab, and ditto for a corndog – especially when most hot dogs can be safely described as "slaughterhouse leavings."
I didn't mind that deep-fried batter outdid the dog. The batter was crunchy (krusty?) on the outside and sweet on the inside. The dog was unremarkable – think what's served at a company barbecue – but the overall taste worked. It's fair food, after all.
