East Texas Burned By Being Left Off Top 10 Spots for Chicken Fried Steak

So I’m sitting here in the radio station studio already feeling pretty hungry for dinner & as I’m scrolling through the internet, my eyes catch a headline touting the best places for chicken fried steak in Texas

What Lone Star State resident doesn’t love great chicken fried steak and/or chicken fried chicken?  I clicked through to the Wide Open Eats article, curious to know which restaurants around here made the list.

The story highlights joints from Galveston to Midland & just about everywhere in between, but NO representation from anywhere in East Texas!  How’s that even possible?

Personally, I can’t resist the chicken fried steak & eggs breakfast plate at The Diner on S. Broadway in Tyler – smothered in creamy white gravy of course!  They also offer it for lunch w/ 2 sides (mashed potatoes, with even more gravy, is a must as one IMO).

Other people in our office gave big chicken fried thumbs up to:  Coyote Sam’s Bar & Grill,  Daniel Boone’s Grill, El Charro On The Ridge, Cotton Patch Cafe, Texas Roadhouse, Jalapeno Tree, Aspen Creek Grill, & Cracker Barrel.

The closest spots ranked in the top 10 are:

Horseshoe Hill Cafe in Fort Worth

Ellen’s Southern Kitchen and Bar in Dallas

Ellen's Southern Kitchen is one of our favorite breakfast spots. Pictured above is their chicken fried chicken with mashed potatoes and Mac and cheese. The food was so good and totally worth the hype. They have one of the best fried chicken around! The décor of the place is also commendable. The damask wallpaper and wall lamps along with the black chairs create a very classy vibe. However parking can sometimes be a pain as this restaurant is located on a busy street. Nevertheless we definitely recommend Ellen's Southern Kitchen! #breakfast #breakfasttime #breakfastofchampions #breakfastlover #dfw #instadallas #dallas #dallastx #dallasfoodie #dallasblogger #foodblogger #food #foodporn #foodie #foodphotography #foodforthought #chickenfriedchicken #chickenfried #macandcheese #mashedpotatoes #chickenfriedsteak #dallaseats #dallasfood #dallasrestaurants #wheretoeat #dallasbrunch #ellenssouthernkitchen #southern #southernbreakfast #texas
