Chicken Fried Steak on Long Island

Other than RS Jones (did not like their version, breading falling off and tough, basically a mess) does anyone know where I can find Chicken Fried Steak on Long Island (Nassau/Western Suffolk)

    1. Hey Phil,
      Since you did your request back in June 2006, have you had an responses anywhere since? I'm curious because I too have been searching Long Island for Chicken Fried Steak for Breakfast! I have seen it offered in a few restaurants, but only offered for Lunch or Dinner, not for Breakfast...
      I'm looking for a restaurant that has Chicken Fried Steak, w/ Biscuits and sausage gravy. Seems you have to go to Upstate New York, or New Jersey to find it for Breakfast... Does anyone know of a place on Long Island??

      Oh, my mistake...I wanted to add Grits to my request
      I'm looking for Chicken Fried Steak, Biscuits w/sausage gravy, and Grits; anywhere on Long Island...

        Or Westchester!

        I've heard truck stops make chicken fried steak. I'd love to know of a place to go for grits, chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy, and even turnip greens.

          The only other place, I"ve ever seen it was Chili's and since it's a once a year thing I want to have a decent one, it was totally disgusting. Far worse than RSJ.

          I know I can get it in Manhattan (I think cowgirl hall of fame has it) just looking for something on LI I have to honest I think it's going to be tough to find for breakfast on LI I have seen it on breakfast menu's in texas and down south though.

          1. re: MrPhil

            Yes I've seen it in a couple of rest stops; one in NJ, and one in PA...thanks.
            Do you know of any others in NY, besides Cowgirl? And I agree RSJ & Chili's was horrible & greasy...My husband is from the mid-west, and he is the one for me, I am a Long Islander all my life...He's originally from Visalia, CA...but he's lived in the mid-west for most of his adult life...about 20yrs.
            He says the best Chicken Fried Steak he's ever had was from Gallagher's in Fallon, NV...he's had it in Texas too...but he swears by Gallagher Auction Yard is the best...Gallagher's is in the auction yard. The 2nd best he says was Tiffany's in Federal Heights, CO...but he said that was 20yrs ago. He doesn't know if that one is still around. And both those places had sausage gravy, grits, and collard greens
            Oh, and I saw the Cowgirl's website and yes they have it for Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner; But not for Breakfast. And that one says its just cream gravy.
            I think there's one in Westchester Cty...we went to one a couple of years ago, but sorry...don't remember where it was. We kinda fell upon it. So we're still looking for another one in NYC, and also on Long Island.

              If I recall correctly, the only place I've actually seen chicken fried steak for breakfast on LI is at IHOP. But its nowhere near as good as the places I had it last summer when I was down in Tennessee!

          1. Grand Lux Cafe next to the Roosevelt Field Mall...I haven't personally had it, but there is always someone around me who is eating it when I'm there and they seem happy...

            1. Chicken Fried Steak with sausage gravy found for breakfast @
              Apollo Diner. Must ask in person not on menu.
