Lost Maples cafe in Utopia,Texas has a decent CFS. There is a post on here somewhere with me chowing down on their CFS. Found it page 22 on this thread. Alamo Springs near Fredericksburg for burgers is darn good.My6 and I are headed out to the Kerrville area to ride the Twisted Sisters this weekend. Any recommendations for good CFS NB or other good food in that area?

I'll keep Neal's in mind if we get that far. Thanks!If you get down far enough south to ConCan, Neal's Dining Room at Neal's Lodge has some awesome food. I had a big lunch when riding out that way with some others and wasn't able to handle a CFS when we got there for dinner, but really wanted one. Just had a cheeseburger and it was one of the best I've had. Everybody was real happy with the quality of their food. I believe it was on 39 in Hunt we stopped in a BBQ place that had some really good cuts of meat. I can't remember the name and can't seem to find it on the map. Seemed like every place we stopped when riding out there had good food.
Is that near Kerrville?

Good to know! We will be doing the Scottish Festival & Highland Games in May and I'll keep that place in mind while we're in Arlington.Sorry, I should have been more descriptive. It's about 12 min from my home in Arlington. They make great pan fries too. Never tried their pies but they look good. Old folks seem to go there and the wife would probably prefer going somewhere else.
I was there w/ Dave and can confirm that it was a really good CFS w/ really good gravy. We got the lunch special which was a smaller portion - next time will probably get the next larger size.
This used to be my favorite, until I had some of my mother in laws chicken fried steak! But a close third is at Murns here in Archer City, TXHave a new favorite. Granny Clarks in Dublin. Went there Sunday with my brother who was in town visiting. Had the all you can eat buffet. The Chicken fried steak was amazing. Had to over do it and had two pieces. The most tender that I have had all year. No gristle not chewy just tender quality pieces of meat. Sorry no picks was too busy enjoying the food and visiting.
I'm opening myself up for ridicule, but I don't like gravy.I think that the main factor in judging CFS is the steak itself. The gravy can be ok but the steak has to be just so. If you cut into the edge of the steak and you get a mouthful of crust and no meat, that steak loses points in my opinion. Also if the crust is hard and crunchy instead of soft and fluffy, again a loss of points. If you want a CFS that meets these requirements, go to Mel's Country Café in Tomball. I usually get the CFS fingers because even the small steaks are pretty big.
I am not a huge gravy fan either. I do use a little just for future knowledge. I get mine on the side when they remember.I'm opening myself up for ridicule, but I don't like gravy.
So I judge based solely on quality of the meat, and the crust.
I prefer a thin crust. When the steak and crust can be cut with the side of a fork everything is just right.
Seems to me like kickstand~prophet started this thread, thus he has the responsibility to report and rate them. Considering that he started this thread in November of 2012, he really doesn't have any excuses for not having tried them all by now.I volunteer to create a shared Google Map, if people really want it. Click the "Like" on my post if you want one. If there's a decent response, I'll do it.
I'll incorporate some sort of rating system in the map, too.
It'll take me a day or three with 747 posts to go through.
