Hard to explain but someone can guide you. There is a place that has Angus Steak Wraps and Angus Nachos! To me it's by far the best food out of the whole place! Location is in the outside edge on the first row just below the Antique Pavilion. I will be there tomorrow and will post name of place and better location idea. You won't be disappointed!

As for must see places. Just walk slow and enjoy all the grounds! I'm more of a old stuff guy and stay in the outside "junk" area. Others love the Arbors full of overpriced items. Have fun!

If you get a chance, they shoot 3d at On Target Archery every Saturday. Great group of guys that work there. And as for food in Canton, Dairy Palace is just ok. To me its over priced and not as good as Whataburger.

We used to eat at the Mexican place on the corner center of town Ro---- something. But the quality has seemed to go down hill so we went to Chilli's.

I hang out in the back were the junk is.

The place with the angus is great. AND go to the other side of the creek where all the old junk stuff is. It's the best.

Got my American Bulldog pup there last month. Headed out there this weekend to pick up the mantle we had done. We ate at the Mexican place mentioned, and it was halfway decent.

If yall figure out the name of that Angus place, I'd be interested.

Ochoa's muy mucho > Robles.

We've been going to a decent little steak place on 243 called Easley's (Go south on 19 from First Monday to the light where the F4 Phantom jet is on display and make a right - everything there is butchered by the family that owns the place and the help is always friendly.

We are headed there after we get the kids on the bus in the morning. Will be staying at the Log Cabin RV park.
As for hitting up the archery range, I would love it my wife doesn't shoot (yet at least).

Mexican at Ocho's like the place to eat.

Thanks for all the ideas. Maybe We can go a impromptu meet up there

Like walking onto the set of Deliverance.

Plus, The Mountain has the annoying habit of catching on fire. Twice in three years. No hydrants, tiny little alleys that fire apparatus cannot get through. ...and they keep rebuilding it. Apparently they're in a fire-code free zone.

If you haven't gone to dog town you haven't truly experienced First Monday. You gotta go to dog town. It's an experience into itself.

Okay - there is a place on the corner with all the metal work, and next to dog town or alley or whatever you call it.

What is the name of that place?

I like the Dairy Palace, great hamburgers and really good service. Other than that, there are hundreds of venders serving up several foods. You won't go hungry.

Those carts are not a very good way to see things, there will always be hundreds of folks blocking you all day long. If you aren't handicapped, just walk. You will thank me later.

this ^^^ if you get in a crowd you will not like being on a cart. But if you need one that's cool.

Food - I like DP, but mostly go for corny dogs, lemonade, pecan candy things,

Stuff - i like the junk areas out in the open for sure like many of you. There is an arbor on northeast side of the place kind of by itself that's worth going through it's shaped like an L.

If you go to the mountains go to GANNY'S PIE SHOP...she also has a store in Winnsboro. Her pies are yum IMO.

Ochoa's moved into a new place. Not as "rustic" but the a/c doesn't drip on you while you eat! Go to the next block west of the old Ochoa's and look obn the opposite side of the road (north). It's in a wood-faced building that faces east. Same folks. Same great food.

Not food, but there is an outfit in one of the barns that sells paper targets. The same people have a booth at most of the gun shows. Get your targets at a fraction of the cost at the range or at stores.

Do yourself a favor, skip the motorized scooters and follow these steps.

Park across from the back side of Dog Alley on Tyler street
Walk all of Dog Alley
Get back in car
Drive to the Civic Center
Pay to park (I know... I know... Still cheaper than a cart rental)
Walk the civic center then out the back door
Walk the "unreserved" section all the way to the back of the pavilions (across the creek)

Your feet and wallet will thank me.

I haven't been in a few months, but last time I was there I did not see any 30.06 signs. I would think you would be fine just about everywhere, but some of the higher-end shops on Highway 19 close to I-20 might have them, but I doubt it. Canton and First Monday Trade Days seem to want to keep everyone happy.

I love the Dairy Palace, but not on First Monday weekend.

I agree with everyone on Buttermilks for chicken fried, Easleys for a steak (or Four Winds is about 20 minutes away from Canton) and Ochoa's for Mexican food. We usually just eat at the grounds on the food there though if we are shopping.
