Fair deal: County Fair brings back old favorite

Boy howdy! It sure has been a spell since Santa Clara County Fair patron last wolfed down a classic original sandwich from Angelo’s Pepper Steak — thin-sliced rib eye steak and sweet green peppers seasoned with the original spices and stuffed inside a sweet roll.

But that’s about to change. After being absent from the fair since the ’60s, the sons of Angelo DiPietro , who died 12 years ago, have decided to bring the popular quarter-pounder back for this year’s fair, which runs from Aug. 2-5.

Son Fred DiPietro promised the Mercury News that they’d be serving it up just like they did when they were kids, on “the original bread, the meat, everything.” One thing we can confidently predict: The 69-cent price of the sandwich that old-timers might remember will remain very much in the past.

The four-day affair kicks off at 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2 and wraps up at 11 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5. Click these links for more specifics on times, as well as ticket prices, and events (hint: includes a Bay Area rock ‘n’ roll act that rhymes with Steady Honey. Or just go straight here to buy tickets.
