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.)

  1. 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.

    1. 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:


      1. 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.

        1. The Cookhouse has (had?) it. No idea if it's any good!

          1. 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.
