Bill and Rosa's Steakhouse in D'Hanis.
Has to be my favorite CFS. I've eaten a lot of them there and have never had a bad one and the breading and crust is always perfect.

Bill makes some great pinto beans too.

Barth's in Kenedy, Tx. It is a chicken fried steak. Not pounded flat like most. Tender and great home cooking taste. I heard they changed owners and I have not been there in a few years but it used to be great.

Hofbrau in Porter - the Texas size Lives up to its name - and is pretty **** good IMO.

Goodson's in Tomball used to be top rated. I've heard people say it's not the same as it used to be. I went there for the first time about a year ago and I thought it was great.

Born and raised in Texas, so lets just say my continually expanding waist is proof I'm not afraid of throwing down CFS. As hard as it might be to believe, its Kelly's at the Village in Allen Texas.

They have an outdoor beer garden, tons of beer on tap and some of the best food around. If you are in or around Allen, Tx give it a try. The food is amazing...
