What's in a Name?

When the owners of Fannie Farkles were brainstorming names, they wanted something catchy, alliterative, and feminine. While "Sassy Suzan's" had a bit of a ring to it, there was one that stood out "Fannie Farkles" (inspired by the Laugh-In sketch which will have you tongue-tied).

Using a font that invokes a turn-of-the-century carnival and a lovely "Gibson girl" sporting a fabulous updo, they created the iconic logo and, thus, the iconic brand "Fannie Farkles."

Fannie Farkles Famous Food

Though its true that a name like "Fannie Farkles" won't soon be forgotten, there's something else about this Gatlinburg establishment that keeps vacationers coming year after year - the food! Everyone likes carnival food (maybe as a bit of a guilty pleasure), but the quality of the food here is simply unsurpassed. Grab one of these delicious treats off of Fannie Farkles menu and take a stroll down Gatlinburg streets as you shop.

  • The Ogle Dog - A Fannie Farkle favorite! The special batter is made fresh from a top secret recipe. These foot-long corndogs are dipped and fried right in front of your eyes. With crunch and a lot of flavor, it's no wonder why people keep coming back for more.

  • Sausage Sandwiches - Made with smoked sausages and sauteed peppers and onions, the smell of this sandwich alone is enough to make you want to eat it. But rest assured, these sandwiches taste as good as they smell.

  • Cheesesteak Subs - Cooked in a special Farkle Sauce, vacationers will love this tasty sub that may even be better than one you'd find in Philly...

  • The Monster Dog - This hot dog gets it's name for a reason. These 1/2 pound beef hotdogs come served up on a bun for one delicious (and filling) hot dog experience.

Make sure you couple your delicious food with some freshly brewed sweet tea - a Southern staple.

Insider Tip: Fannie Farkles only accepts cash. Luckily, there's an ATM on the premises just in case the smell of the delicious Ogle Dogs makes you forget.
