Separated by a small stretch of road Jonathon and Christine Erdeljac have set up their gravy kingdom in Oak Cliff where they reign as King and Queen of Gravy. Not a bad title if indeed you plan on selling plates of chicken fried steak and giant biscuits.

A Week of Celebration Honoring Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day

cfs jesusby Steven Doyle

We are in celebration mode this week as we seek out the very best Chicken Fried Steaks in the DFW area and around the state of Texas. It is research that is heartfelt, and I am sure our heart is feeling all the fried beef we have consumed for the large list we will present last in the week as we pay homage to Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day.

Chicken-fried steak is a dish in which a cut of beef, usually thin and selected from the round, is breaded and fried. (Occasionally, some restaurants have also cooked a cut of pork.) The method of preparation is similar to that of fried chicken, which explains the name. The Texas staple is most often served with mashed potatoes and covered with cream gravy. Continue reading

Kenny’s Smoke House For A Curiously Delectable Brunch

With all of the eponymous Kenny Bowers restaurants in DFW (Kenny’s Burgers, Kenny’s Wood-Fired Grill, etc.), it can be hard to keep up. Luckily, Kenny’s Smoke House in The Shops at Legacy is cooking up a whole bunch of new brunch options that won’t soon be forgotten.

Kenny’s Smokehouse has been open in The Shops at Legacy since January of 2013, however, the brick-and-wood barbeque joint didn’t start serving brunch until about a year ago, when they had secretly begun testing out new brunch items that weren’t listed on the menu. Now, every Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., guests can choose from six delectable brunch items. Continue reading

Hunt For CFS: Lucky’s Cafe

Shuffling in and finding one of the few remaining seats at the bar, a popular spot for the regulars, you grab a menu and peruse knowing that you will order the chicken fried steak. But you scan the menu with the thought you may discover a new Texas favorite, but alas you do not. Nothing new has been invented in the past hundred years that might exceed the perfection of a slab of tasty beef pounded thick and hand breaded and deep fried. The craggy crisp layers are an exciting place for unctuous creamed gravy to lay rest in anticipation of your first bite. Continue reading
