My husband and I love chicken fried steak. Problem is everybody's is so
different. So far our favorite is at a little restaurant called Tony's
in Plano. We've tried it several other places and none are as good. I
was wondering if anyone else was a fan of chicken fried steak and where
are some places that make good ones. Thanks.

Po' Melvin's in Irving (Beltline near Walnut Hill) has good CFS. They are
also one of the few places to get CF Pork Chops!! The food has a very good
home cooking flavor, one of my favorites!!

The Reata in Fort Worth has a really great, covers-your-plate
CFS. It's walking distance from The Worthington and Sundance
Square.

Actually, Mac's on 75, has the best CFS around, IMHO.

If going to a chain restaurant is not beneath you, try Chili's. They claim to
be hand battered and they appear/taste to be so. They're quite yummy IMO but
my arteries can only handle one a month.

I second Reata. I order the CFS (really chicken fried ribeye) nearly every
time we go there. For out of towners, Reata is on the 35th floor of the
BankOne building in downtown Ft. Worth. The have valet parking, good food,
good views through the floor to ceiling windows. Good wine list, but pricey,
we usually do beers or mixed drinks. They do set a table in the kitchen so you
can watch the chaos, if you like that kind of thing.

I was pleasantly surprised to get a great chicken fried steak at
Cotton Patch Restaurant on Hwy 121 between Grapevine and Bedford.
It was large, as large as the plate, the gravy was good and plentiful.
It needed pepper and salt which pleased my wife.

I understand they are a chain, but this is the only one I have seen.

From a brochure in the restaurant, it appears that their operating model is
to put the new locations primarily in smaller towns. I think most of them
were in places like Lufkin, Dennison, etc.

Yep, they are also located in Lewisville, Duncanville, and Abilene.
Wish they'd build one in N. Dallas...

Try their Chicken Fried Chicken. Its wonderful!

In the words of the immortal Dan Cook, San Antonio sportscasting legend, "If
you can cut it with a fork, it ain't CFS."

In addition to having about the best barbecue in the Dallas area
the place in Tioga whose name escapes me at the moment also
has one of the best chicken fried steaks. I am sure someone on
here can give the name of the place but just now I can't remember it.
But it's about the only place in Tioga so it shouldn't be hard to find even
if you don't have the name.
