Texas has its own day to celebrate the almighty chicken fried steak and it is on October 26. The day was created by seventh-generation Texan and local entrepreneur, Jeffrey Yarbrough in 2010. This year there is the addition of “Peace, Love, and Chicken Fried Steak” by Jimmy Baldwin as the day’s statewide anthem performed at Allgood Café on Oct. 26 at 7 pm.

Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day came about when Yarbrough realized one of Texas’ beloved food groups was not receiving the recognition it deserved. With the assistance of several other restaurateurs such as State Representative and Las Casas Restaurant (recently closed) owner Ralph Sheffield, Yarbrough was able to get the resolution signed on May 2, 2010 for Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day.

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

Chef Point serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

What really motivated us to drive out to visit the restaurant is the legendary chicken and waffles. And they were every bit as delicious as they were described to us by one of our readers who suggested we try this dish out.  Continue reading
