TULSA - Between ice cream, pulled pork, gravy, and other menu toppings the new Freddie's French fry bar is not holding anything back when creating new menu items to interest fairgoers.
Originally from Muskogee, owner Darren Kilbatrick received the idea to begin a fry bar from his son and says the initial thought grew into something much larger.
"Every time I go somewhere to get french fries my son always has to have ice cream. Ice cream on his french fries. I asked him, do all the kids like that? Dad everybody likes ice cream on their french fries," Kilbatrick said.
Although it is only the first time the fry bar has appeared at the Tulsa State Fair, Freddie's is tripling the original estimated volume of potatoes and running out of menu ingredients due to the high demand.
The most popular item is the "Frydae" which includes two scoops of ice cream, chocolate syrup, whip cream, and cherries atop a bed of fries.
Kilbatrick says he loves coming to the fair and now knows what to expect in the coming years.
"We're kind of scrambling around for potatoes and finding things. We're running out of things, we apologize for the that, but it's a good problem to have," Kilbatrick said.
