Not sure about Chicken Fried Steak but there is a GREAT Mexican restaurant called Michin in that area.

Tip Top Cafe is good but I have had better.

Grist mill is awesome but if you're gonna go that far, go to Bandera and grab one from OST or Busbee's

Definitely Antler Cafe and get the jalapeño mac n cheese along with the chicken fried steak. Oh and try to save room for the banana pudding, friend of mine makes it for them and it is amazing!

They have some very nice mounts on the walls and play good ol country music too.

Dang now I want antlers, we might head over there too!

Not sure if you have kids but they have a playground outside for them too!

I like MK Davis better than Lu Lus and Tip Top. Sounds like I need to head north and try Antlers

Been to LuLu's and had the CF with jalaepeno gravy. It was Ok not really impressed. The giant cin roll was the best thing I have had there

Tip Top is pretty good, MK Davis is average, Lulus is pretty good, but hands down Grist Mill is the best
