  1. I'm not a chicken fried steak afficionado, so I don't know how it compares to the ideal, but Copper Dome (on Randolph at Hamline) serves it. It does not come with gravy, alas. I love Copper Dome for its old-timey feel but usually put it in the "good to have in the neighborhood but perhaps not worth crossing town for" category. They pride theirselves on their many variations of pancake combos (with eggs, with sausage, with pork chops...etc.)

    I'm sure I've seen CFS elsewhere, but nothing's coming to mind right now.

    1. The one at Dixies on Grand is pretty good.

      1. Thanks for your notes.

        1. Dixie's is the best, in my opinon, but the Rock Bottom Brewery in downtown Minneapolis does a crediable job also.

          1. We accidentally tried the chicken fried steak listed as a special at Bonfire tonight. That was the worst excuse for a chicken fried steak that we have ever seen. It was the thickest, toughest, greasiest CFC ever. We had no idea that anyone on Earth would charge $19.00 for a small chicken fried steak. N-I-N-E-T-E-E-N D-O-L-L-A-R-S!!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable!

            1. I don't know how good it is, and it's slightly beyond the Twin Cities, but if you ever get to the Coffee Cup Cafe in Becker (which is en route to St. Cloud to the Twin Cities), they have it on the menu there and based on what I have tried there, I'll bet it's fantastic.
