Best Chicken Fried Steak in Dallas

I'm visiting from Northern California - where Chicken Fried Steak is almost non-existent. I'd love to find out where I can find the best CFS in the Dallas area. I am staying out by DFW airport and am willing to drive 15-20 miles.

Thanks and let me know if you ever need any tips for SF Bay Area dining!

        Yep I would agree, I have tried all the "Dallas" places and don't think any really stack up. All though several are really close depending on their day and the alignment of the moon, however Babes is a constant.

          Based off of the responses... I went to Babes in Carrollton last night and was blown away. Nothing like that in the Bay Area. Great CFS - Crispy and tender (but not too tender...) The sides were good. The gravy was like my grandmothers (creamy and bacon dripping tasting)... And the BISCUITS were out of this world. I didn't know about the BYOB. The food needed some beer. But the lemonade was still good.

          Thanks for helping me out to find a new/ old place in Dallas!
