Many think the classic grilled cheese sandwich is hard to outdo — wrong. Step up to Drewski’s Hot Road Kitchen and experience a grilled cheese sandwich unlike any you ever imagined. This popular food truck from Sacramento specializes in gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches including their signature pulled pork and mac and cheese grilled cheese sandwich — a mouthful, literally.

The food truck will also be serving everything from deep-fried mac n’ cheese balls to sweet potato fries and their famous tots. Still wanting some’more? Check out its S’moreski — a whipped marshmallow, Nutella, graham cracker grilled on sweet French roll.

Coming from Lincoln, the New West Barbecue will draw in the crowds by the delicious smells coming from their booth. All day its giant smoker will be producing delicious barbecue covered in its homemade barbecue sauce. What doesn’t go better with barbecue than a fresh off the grill corn on the cob? Ana Co.  will be selling its delicious corn on the cob as well as other favorites such as its stuffed baked potatoes with all the fixings.

Skip the meal and head straight for dessert

On a hot summer day, nothing sounds better than a scoop of ice cream right? Head over to Wende’s Hit & Miss Ole’ Fashion Ice Cream and experience a scoop of ice cream like you never have before.

Looking for something a little more international? Don’t forget to visit the people at Colossal Gelato where they will be serving up the dessert that Italy is known for — gelato.

What’s better than homemade pie? Free pie. Help the fair name its Pastry Booth on the El Dorado County Fair Facebook page by submitting a name for their Pastry Booth. If your suggestion is chosen, you’ll win a pair of tickets to fair and two pieces of pie. Fairgoers can choose from five mouth-watering flavors supplied by Sierra Rizing: four berry, fruits of the valley, apple cinnamon, lemon meringue and a flourless chocolate cake.

In addition to slices of pie, pie a la mode. and chocolate cake, the pastry booth will be serving up donuts provided by Sweet Score, assorted pastries and coffee. All proceeds from the Pastry Booth go to help raise money for capital improvements on the fairgrounds.

Don’t think the sweets end there. Enjoy a Slushie as you browse the food selections along Concessionaire Row. Everyday Lynn’s Uddeer D-Lite will be serving up frozen bananas, sundaes and root beer floats. Or enjoy the ice cream of the future and pick up a bowl of Dippin’ Dots.

If you’re looking for a pick-me-up, treat yourself to a mocha or coffee drink from Pony Express. Craving something south of the border? Pick up some of your Mexican food favorites at Fiesta Concessions.

Maybe you’d prefer something to snack on throughout the day? Munch on a bag of delicious Kettle Corn but with a warning: Snacking may turn into eating the entire bag in one day. If you’re near the livestock barns, Cool Red Bus will be serving everything from hot dogs and hamburgers to shaved ice.

What kind of fair would we be without funnel cakes? Stop by JT Funnel Cakes and indulge in this classic fair treat. Its funnel cakes are delicious, and feature a variety of toppings to choose from.

For those strong willed individuals, there will be plenty of healthy food options including a fresh fruit stand and a Jamba Juice booth.

Make sure to support your local non-profit groups. Start off your morning with a breakfast sandwich from the Union Mine Music Boosters. Enjoy the famous tacos of the Active 20/30 Club or a slice of pizza from the Full Life Fellowship. Pleasant Valley Grange #675 will be selling a fair favorite, corn dogs.

Then end your day the right way, with a margarita from the Georgetown Divide Rotary Club Margarita Booth — only 21 and over.

Come out and experience all of the amazing foods of the 2013 El Dorado County Fair. With so many new vendors, the hardest decision you’ll be making all day is which type of food you want to try next.

The 2013 El Dorado County Fair, themed “Blue Jeans and Country Dreams,” will take place Thursday through Sunday, June 13 to 16 in Placerville.

The fairgrounds are located at 100 Placerville Drive in Placerville.
