A Bury's hamburger was $3. A funnel cake was $4. Wow - I know.. a whole $10 if you bought a soda! Try going to Panera and getting a sandwich for less than $6.

I can eat lunch at Panera a lot cheaper than at the fair. And I won't even go into the quality or nutrition of the food.

That's the Johnnie Eagle's Bury's stand. The other, larger Bury's stand (the glass-enclosed trailer near the ATM kiosk) was nowhere to be seen.

Well, if you usually eat what could be construed as "veggies on toast" at Panera, then I suppose the nutrition of the food is much better. But some of us from time to time would actually like to eat foods that have some taste to it.
Once you start adding anything with flavor to it in most Panera meals, you begin to rack up the calories and fat. You can easily do that by selecting a specialty bread, or have a sandwich dressing other than lite italian.
Granted, I do like Panera meals myself, but I can buy their food anytime. That's the point of the fair food for those who enjoy it, to have something you normally would not have access to.
Personally, I don't know what the deal is with the YLT steak sandwiches, but I know they have their fans. Foods such as funnel cakes and certain "special recipe" burgers are not easily obtainable. Buying both of them is NOT a considerable expense beyond the cost of Panera meals. Unless the streets of PA are scattered with "Bury King" burger shops or "McFunnelcake" stands, people don't mind spending a few extra bucks for a "treat" once a year.
