The Munchie Wagon serving up food at the Dixie Classic Fair: Just like your grandmother’s best home cooking (Winston-Salem Journal)

Tim Clodfelter and Michael Hastings with the Winston-Salem Journal recently traveled the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds in search of interesting food options. They really LOVE our WBFJ food sponsor The Munchie Wagon:

“The Munchie Wagon, near the Coliseum Annex, is run by Mike and Glenda Chambers. For years, Glenda Chambers was a competitor in fair cooking contests, racking up hundreds of ribbons. Later, she judged the contests. She may be a commercial vendor now, but her food is still like your grandmother’s best home cooking. Her vegetable soup ($4) on Friday was chock full of homemade goodness in the form of potatoes, corn, okra, green beans, black-eyed peas and more. She offers a different soup or stew every day, including potato and chicken tortilla soups. She also sells chicken and pork-chop sandwiches and a giant baked sweet potato ($4) that probably is the most nutrition you can get on one plate at the fair. The real draw, though, is her desserts. Chocolate pie and strawberry cake are just two of the choices. Her coconut pie ($4) is to die for: moist, just gooey enough and loaded with coconut.”
