It was 9:30 and dinner had been many hours earlier. We went for what became our nightly stroll through the streets of Gatlinburg. We saw someone eating funnel cake and started talking about fair food. Well, talk of fair food always turns to corn dogs for me. We did a quick search and Fannie Farkle's came up. It was a... More

I try to always stop in at Fannie Farkles. It's just a fun place. They have all kinds of games to play and the best corndogs and smoked sausage. Great place if it is raining outside. It's a little high, but worth it.

We usually stop here when exploring the Gatlinburg strip. My teens love the corndogs, they're good. I think they are a little pricey but otherwise food is good. Located in a busy, congested part of the strip.

It's a tradition to go to fanny farkles to get a corn dog everytime we go to gatlinburg. I have grown up going to gatlinburg as well as fanny farkles. When we come into town I roll my window down to try and catch a whiff of the food driving by. I love the drink cups they provide. I have... More

My husband and I love going here just to good off and be kids again. They have gone away from their physical tickets, to your points being placed on a card. It's nice that they are going with the times, but I always like the fact that they were old school and still had tickets. And while you are there,... More

We stopped at Fanny Farkles every night we were in town to play a few games. They have a large selection of games and prizes and the staff is quite friendly (much more so than the other arcades in town). Skip the others and go Fanny Farkles.

I went mainly to play skeeball. There's not a lot of variety, but the usual arcade style and claw drop games abound. The few kids running around seemed to be enjoying themselves.

We arrived in Gatlinburg a little late but decided to just grab a quick bite. The dog was not bad. But the price was really high for the dog. It wasn't worth the price I paid.

Great Place for kids and family. My daughter played Wheel of Fortune and ended up getting 7000 points. Like the idea of the e-tickets, no more carrying around a bunch of paper tickets.

We've been coming here for about 17 yrs since my daughter was a baby and this was always her favorite place to play. We'd go here and spend hours playing games and winning little prizes. We went there last night and they have changed out most games and everything is $1 or more. Most games last seconds to maybe 1-2... More
