Evansville restaurant serving up Fall Festival foods

Local News

EVANSVILLE. Ind. (WEHT) — During the coronavirus pandemic, businesses — like local restaurants — have been struggling to get by.

One Evansville eatery, inspired by the Evansville’s West Side Nut Club Fall Festival, is changing up its menu.

The Cross-Eyed Cricket has gone to what it calls — a Fall Festival menu – in order to attract customers.

The restaurant picked out six favorite food items usually served at the festival, and will serve them daily.

The Fall Festival menu includes Donut Cheeseburgers, Pronto Pups, Corn Fritters, and German Bologna Sandwiches.

Cross-Eyed Cricket owner Fernando Tudela says, “It’s just been a very uphill battle. So, right now, it’s just a matter of coming up with ways we can still take care of our employees, and also take care of the community. And see if, in some way, we can still just have some enjoyment out of the circumstances that we’re now coming about.”

Tudela says, given the circumstances, he can’t complain about the business his restaurant is still receiving.
