Mutt Lynch’s Keeps the Magic Alive with New Menu of OC Fair-inspired Foods


Mutt Lynch’s has introduced a menu inspired by the funky foods found at the OC Fair.  Available for a limited time, the special menu sees the addition of iconic Fair favorites, including Giant Turkey Legs and Deep-fried Oreos. When the OC Fair was canceled this year for the second time in its over-130-year history due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Mutt Lynch’s found a way to keep its magic alive with a special menu recreating some of the Fair’s most iconic dishes.

“We go to OC Fair every year as a family, and one of the biggest draws for us is the outrageously fun food,” comments VP of food & beverage and second-generation owner Jerilyn Lynch. “The Fair signifies the peak of summer; being there creates a sense of care-free nostalgia. We think the world could use a bit of that right now, so we thought ‘If we can’t go to the OC Fair, we’ll bring the OC Fair to us!’”

Mutt Lynch’s is offering the following OC Fair-inspired foods which will be available through Labor Day:

Giant Turkey Legs – jumbo smoked turkey leg fit for a king, served with your choice of dipping sauce

German Pretzel – giant, pillowy pretzel served with whole grain mustard & queso two ways Mutt Lynch's GermanPretzel 001

In addition to its new menu of OC Fair-inspired food, Mutt Lynch’s is currently offering its full menu – which contains over 200 items. The iconic beach bar has also expanded to offer outdoor dining, converting five parking spaces into a spacious beach-front dining area with plenty of seating, tiki torches, and the hanging Christmas lights, that have become a year-round staple at Mutt Lynch’s. This year, the family-owned eatery celebrates its 45th anniversary and will soon unveil a sister concept set to open in Orange County in Fall 2020.
