The Shed in Edom used to be my favorite, but I haven't been there in years.

Depends what you mean by best? There is Best for the money, and then there is the best ever. The stockyards in Fort Worth has at least two. The Horseshoe Hill Cafe and H3 on Exchange. If you want a fork tender CFS and real country gravy you can't go wrong at either. And those are the facts!

Had one at Sweetie Pies in Decatur over the thanksgiving week end, says it is a thin tenderized rib eye. It was thin and cremated, ever thing else was good, might have been bad day for the cook and might try again.

Not a hater just calling a spade a spade and I've been going for 45-50 years. We use to hunt in Brad when we were young on Will Jim Belding's ranch.


Mary's was just on a recent episode of The Texas Bucket List, she actually country fries her "chicken fried steaks", also Mary's opened in the 80's.

Is smoking still allowed at Mary's? The last time I was there it was pretty disgusting.

I ate there 6-8 months ago and didn't notice any smoke. If there had been then I'm pretty sure I would have smelled it.

Beehive in Albany! They are only a restaurant bc of their pan fried chicken fried steak! Banker they tried to get loan from told them if they didn’t know chicken fried steak they wouldn’t make it so they learned from a grandma from that area and went back to banker and cooked him chicken fried and got their restaurant. Chicken fry is awesome but one of best steaks you will find anywhere as well!

Chicken fried steak in one thing I miss by no longer eating out. I don't fry at home. I like my gravy on the side.

I ate out once a week with my neighbor. He moved. I'm not about to go out to a restaurant and eat by myself.

You need to find another dinner buddy. We all you know you "know longer fry at home", but my question is why? If it's just you, get a cheap little electric fryer and use it on your back porch. It will not smell up the house and is easy clean up. You still have a lot of life to live Bill....go live it!

El Paesanos in Zapata makes a pretty tasty one assuming they are still open. Good catfish too.

Why not? I do it all the time. I'm going to do it for lunch today as well.

Bill, you were in sales. I'm sure you probably ate out by yourself in the past. Like others above, I do it all the time as well. I go where I want also. Who knows, you might catch some lady's eye.

Cafe Texan on the square in Huntsville has a good one.

The previously mentioned Buck's in Sweetwater has a good one.

The previously mentioned Ponder Steakhouse AKA Ranchman's is the best one I have had here in DFW.

Just my .02,
LeonCarr

I'm stuffed. It was great. I like my gravy on the side. Had to get doggie bags.

Veteran move. I can appreciate a crisp batter....appropriate for any CFS.

If y’all think the Beehive in Albany is great, you must not get out much.
Helluva a lot better food and service out there.

Are you referring to Ranchman's Cafe in Ponder?
