It might taste like chicken, but you’re actually biting into a Lousiana Gator cube marinated with spicy sauce, breaded, then deep-fried. It’s served with a tangy Louisiana tartar sauce, and it’s a great bite-size shareable dish.

We have to get our veggies at some point…why not make them deep-fried? Mr. Vegetables’ sizable Cauliflower Wings are the perfect snack to tack onto any BBQ, corndog, or Colossal Onion orders as a side.

The Cotton Candy Soft Serve tastes exactly how you think it would — sugary and refreshing. This dish comes in a super generous portion and the sky-high swirl makes it one of the most Insta-worthy new Midway eats you can get on the ground this year.
