chicken-fried steak in CT?
DH and i were watching "Fried Food Paradise" on Travel Channel (OMG! CHICKEN-FRIED BACON!!) and realizing that neither of us have ever eaten a chicken-fried steak before. since we don't live in Texas, it's not likely to happen...but is there anywhere in CT or maybe western MA that would serve a somewhat authentic preparation?
(i assume Cracker Barrel would not be the place...but feel free to correct me.)
It's on the menu at Bubba's restaurant at Mohegan Sun, Uncasville, CT. I haven't had it so can't give an opinion on how authentic it is.
Haha. Honestly, my first response was going to be "...Cracker Barrel?"
I think I've had a bite of one at Cracker Barrel, actually, and it seemed pretty tasty but I can't really vouch for authenticity. In all fairness I'm a Cracker Barrel apologist so you should probably take that with a grain of salt.
Little Taste of Texas in South Windsor has one on the menu:
My husband's had the one at bubba's and liked it...and being a southern boy, he can vouch for its authenticity. Old Tymes in Norwich has it on their menu, also, but it's hit or miss. We've actually had a server recommend against it because it wasn't prepped right. And while I can't say anything about cracker barrel's CFS, I've always found their breakfasts to be tasty, so I'd imagine the rest of their food would be decent as well.
Do you have a Chili's Bar and Grill near you? They have a very tasty and crispy one, sometimes it can be a bit salty but its always been tender.
