How To Celebrate Chicken Fried Steak Day

by Steven Doyle

God love Jeffrey Yarbrough. He is one of the strongest supporters of restaurants in Dallas, and when the man decided that there needed to be a holiday that celebrated what should be our state dish, chicken fried steak, he went to Austin to do something about it. This is why every October 26 we celebrate Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day as proclaimed by the Texas Legislature.

For most of us we didn’t need a proclamation, but how fun is it that it is all nice and official like. It sort of mandates the fact that we cannot go the day without sampling at least one platter of gravy soaked fried meat.        Continue reading

We Unravel The Enigma That Is Becks Prime

DSC09858by Steven Doyle

The Dallas Burger Wars continue to mount at breakneck speed, leaving only the very best to survive. To make it in this North Texas city you need to bring your a-game, and I am looking directly in your peeps Houston. It’s been just over a single year since Becks Prime opened its quirky steakhouse with a drive through on Forest Lane near Preston in Dallas, and now the locations equal a solid three with more on the possible horizon. The latest incarnation is on Oak Lawn, just across the road from the very posh digs of the ultra elite fitness center, Equinox. After sampling most of the fare at Becks today, I can assuredly see the Parkie lovelies making way to the burger stop for some pretty fantastic non-fast fast food.    Continue reading

Look For A Steak And Ale Opening Near You, But Not Real Soon

couponby Steven Doyle

The first time I ever slammed against a salad bar was at Steak and Ale as a young lad. The thought of the stack of the cold plates chilling to near iceberg levels only to be met with a layer of salad greens and the very first sampling of blue cheese ever still brings a slight moistening to the side of my lips.

I am not sure the last time I ran through that salad bar, or any salad bar for that matter, but it had to be at least five years ago because that was when the very last Steak and Ale closed its doors.

Hilton Anatole’s SĒR is Officially Open

We have followed the SĒR construction and menu development since the closing of iconic Nana just a few short months ago (here and here ). Many were saddened by the closure, but had those same people visited Nana more than once a year as a special ocassion restautrant, it would still be open. Thus the nature of economics.

SĒR is the first of a ration of restaurants premiering in the month of October, and this quick multi-million dollar facelift will soon prove to be one of the new gems sprouting from the restaurant role of 2012.

Where To Find A Good Steak In Dallas On The Cheap

by Steven Doyle

Probably not a week goes by that a reader asks where to find a good haunch of beef. We invariably tell them one of the many steakhouses across the Dallas skyline depending on where they live. We love Nick and Sam’s. It could be that they pass out caviar like it was candy, and sincerely… isn’t it? We also love Pappas Brothers in all their wine goodness.

Tonight several craveDFW staffers will be at Del Frisco Double Eagle for a wine dinner. We love somm Jennifer Jaco and never bypass a moment where we can visit with her even for a few minutes. Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop House also is a staff favorite, and we love his cigar room. Plus you get Richard Chamberlain, and that always makes for  fun evening.          Continue reading
