Mattress Firm Reviews: The Texas State Fair

Of all the states with large fairs, the ratings are always highest for Mattress Firm's home state of Texas. We love being a part of the State Fair of Texas, and if you're lucky enough to pass by Big Tex for a visit, you'll be able to see several of the events that we're sponsoring this year, including the Mattress Firm Illumination Sensation. This nightly fireworks show is a blast – literally – for everyone who sticks around Fair Park after the sun goes down.

If you're visiting the State Fair of Texas this year, you'll see several areas where our Mattress Firm team members from all over the country are set up to help folks learn more about sleep habits and getting a better night's sleep. We talked to a few Mattress Firm employees to hear reviews of their favorite State Fair staples.

Deno Singh Home Market: Houston, TX

“This is my first time at the State Fair of Texas, and the first thing I tried was Floyd's catfish. It was great, but I'll also be sure to get a corn dog before I go."

John French Home Market: Phoenix, AZ

“My favorite is the Donutburger, for sure. This is my fourth year at the State Fair of Texas and that's definitely the best thing here."

Shannon Sweeney Home Market: Longmont, CO

“I don't eat meat, so the options are a little limited. But I tried the Potato Tornado and it was really good."

Joe Quatraro Home Market: Akron, OH

“I always am up for a burrito – or cheese on a stick."

Kevin King Home Market: Upstate New York

“This is my first time at the State Fair of Texas, but these funnel cakes are good. You can really never go wrong with funnel cake."

Garrick Davis Home Market: Miami, FL

“This is my third year to come down here, so I've tried most of the food. But this year, my favorite thing I've seen is the African Acrobatics show. It's amazing."

Caitlin Bendeck Home Market: Columbus OH

“My goal is to find some sort of semi-healthy food. I got a corn dog on my first day here and couldn't even finish it – it's huge!"

Harry Robinson Home Market: Dallas, TX

“Being from Dallas, I grew up coming to the State Fair here in Fair Park. The best thing to eat here is Floyd's catfish – I've been telling everyone about it."

Our team sure knows how to find the best (read: maybe awful for your waistline) snack food items at the State Fair, but we're pretty sure that all the walking around cancels them out. So, if you're in Dallas this month, be sure to come say hi to Big Tex and your friends at Mattress Firm, and give some of our favorites a try!
