GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- If you've been coming to the Josephine County Fair for a while, you might recognize these two food booths.

It's Casa Amiga's eighth year at the fair. A couple things keep them coming back each year. 

"It's about the community," said Jose Palomino, the owner of Casa Amiga. "It's about the fairgrounds. And it's about everybody having fun and enjoying themselves."

The Josephine County Fair has seen great attendance this year, according to the fair director. Food vendors have noticed.

"We've been struggling through the years because of the smoke, because of the heat," Palomino said. "But this year, it's wonderful."

Casa Amiga said coming to the fair lets them share their culture and food. They say if you're new to their food, try a burrito bowl. 

"It steps outside of the conventional buritto wrapped in a tortilla," Palomino said. "We put everything in a bowl and you can walk around. That's what we recommend."

Their bowls come with homemade salsa. Another booth has been at the fair for decades. 

"We've been doing it for close to 30 years now," said Tone Simm, who manages Oriental Food Concessions. This food booth is a family business. They drive down from Portland each year just to run this booth. 

"We still like the environment that the people give us, so we like coming back," Simm said. "It's relaxing. It's a home away from home."

Their food is homemade too.

"The food that we serve out our window is what we eat ourselves," Simm said. 

Both booths said they don't plan on leaving the fair any time soon. 

"You said the magic word," Palomino said. "It's fun. It's always fun."
