Share Article

Axel’s trademarked Bull Bites will not be featured at the Great Minnesota Get-Together this year. Instead, these Cajun-seasoned tenderloin tips and other fair-themed dishes will be offered at all eight Axel’s and Bonfire restaurants in the metro area.

For the first time in nearly two decades, Axel’s and Bonfire will not be serving their signature Bull Bites at the Great Minnesota Get-Together. The trademarked long-time fair favorite will only be available at one of the restaurants' eight metro locations. Those who wish to feed their Cajun-seasoned tenderloin craving can find them on the Fair Food Features Menu that will be served at Axel’s and Bonfire now through September 1st.

“Bull Bites are a trademarked delicacy and a top seller at both our Axel’s and Bonfire restaurants,” stated Mitch Wachman, Vice President of Operations at Axel’s and Bonfire. “Although we won’t be serving them at the State Fair this year, we’ve been having a lot of fun creating our Fair Food Features Menu in the hopes that we can bring a little taste of the fair to the suburbs.” There are five Bonfire and three Axel’s Restaurants in the metro area that will serve these fair-themed summer features.

In addition to Bull Bites and other fair-themed favorites, the menu includes a charred pork chop on a stick, a southwest spin on grilled corn on the cob, and flash-fried Nutella s’mores. “This is an exciting time of year to present some fun summer items with a creative culinary twist,” stated Kevin Petroske, Executive Chef at Bonfire.

Although the fair-themed items will only be offered for a limited time, Bull Bites will remain on both the Bonfire and Axel’s menus year-round. To view the full menu online or to make a reservation, guests can visit http://www.bonfirewoodfirecooking.com or http://www.axelsrestaurants.com.
