Default Chicken Fried Steak

The "favorite burger" post was revived, and it got me to thinking. When I go to a restaurant, I usually get a burger or CFS.

So what restaurant serves your favorite chicken fried steak?

I did the same thing on the burger post...but I am going back to the '90s. I am not for sure if it is still there or not, but Snook had a restaurant called Czech Tex. It had a dang good, and big, chicken fried steak.

Now with that said, we do CFS often at the lease and nothing really beats that!

Elm creek in Lincoln had/sometimes still has a very good one

Hard to find a really good one anymore. Too much batter and fried to hard for my taste. I like my moms the best. Cooked in the skillet with a thin soft crust

Most are too greasy.

Moutons in Leander is really really good and not greasy. Surely someone from my area can back me on this one.

I can't go into Po' Melvin's without getting the catfish. Now it looks like I'll have to break from tradition and try the CFS. Honestly the best I've had though was at Lane's in San Isidro. Another good one was in Somerville. I forget the name of the place, but a small CFS hung over the plate and it was delicious.

There's nothing in there that isn't good!

It's harder to find good catfish around here so I will often times go that route as well.

Not a traditional CFS, but the chicken fried short rib at Jack Allen's Kitchen in Austin and Round Rock is awesome!

They take a big beef double short rib (one rib bone, one full piece of meat on each side), braise it tender, then batter and chicken fry it. It will put you to sleep in the booth with a smile on you face.

Price is good for how much volume and flavor you get.

Not the best CFS (not bad, though), but maybe the best CFS Deal.

If you order CFS at Trudy's in Austin and ask for it "Hondo Style" they will increase the meal price by $1 and give you a second full serving of CFS and one more side.
