October 26th is Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day!!!

Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day

October 26th!!!

Gravy underneath instead of on top
Ah, the delights of tenderized, breaded and fried round steak with peppered cream gravy and some type of potato on the side. No, it isn't healthy but it is TRADITION! I prefer pan-fried to deep fried but we know that takes a lot more time to cook and people can be impatient.

There are no Abilene restaurants listed on the Facebook  page in the "about" section as participants in the celebration. Perini's in Buffalo Gap is on there but there is nothing within the city limits. Why?  We have some pretty decent chicken fried steaks served in town.

Below is a list of my favorite CFS places in Abilene in order--

The Beehive--N. 5th and Cedar (no free refills on drinks though)
Cattle Baron Cafe--S. 1st and Leggett
Skeet's Texas Grill--Southwest Dr. and Catclaw
Lytle Land & Cattle--S. 11th and Judge Ely Blvd
Town Crier--Highway 80 and Washington Blvd (lunch special is a bargain)

Best I've had other than my grandma's--Mary's Cafe in Strawn, TX.
