It may seem odd giving Best Chicken-Fried Steak to a joint known for its barbecue. On the other hand, to anyone but a Texan, applying the word "best" to a flattened, floured and fried hunk of cheap beef slathered in--ugh--cream gravy is pretty weird itself. Texans' love of this dish was always a bit of a mystery to us, seeing as we're not from around these parts--or at least it was until we took a bite of Peggy Sue's huge hunk o' steak. Miracle of miracles, it didn't taste like the greasy sole of a shoe dipped in batter and smothered in wallpaper paste! We actually took another bite. (Or several. We may have been drunk at the time.) Regardless of our mental state, however, our Texas-bred spouse assures us the Peggy Sue's chicken-fried is exactly what all the Texas culinary fuss is about: a crispy coating, not greasy, surrounding a piece of tender, flavorful beef accompanied by a moderate amount of peppery gravy that actually has a rich creamy flavor not reminiscent of glue. Thanks to Peggy Sue, we can say we've become converts to the Texas way of thinking about this Lone Star favorite. Now, all we need is the number of a good cardiologist.

The best fried chicken by far is Pollo Campero! It started in Guatamala, so they make flavor-bursting chicken with a latin twist! Try it, you WON'T be dissapointed. Their food will send your taste buds flying and will send the other chicken joints fleeing to their coops. Try it right off their NW highway location, you will love it!


Try the chicken fried steak at Prego Pasta House on Greenville Ave in Dallas. It isn't cheap, but it is made of a butterflied NY strip steak, and absolutely delicious!

I have found a secret place in Irving that states it has the bestest chicken fried steak in Texas and I believe that in fact in does have one of the best chicken fried steaks I have tasted. I go there a lot and everything is made from scratch.! Taste like you are eating at your grandma's house. Really good meatloaf and the desserts are to die for! If you are in the area you really need to try the place out. It's called the Cast Iron Skillet located at 2912 N. Beltline Rd. in Irving Tx. tele# 972-252-4700. You won't regret it!
