        I've always wondered about TCF's specials...specifically the chicken fried steak on Monday. I never seem to be around there or wanting a CFS on Monday.

        Speaking of daily specials, Tennessee Grill has some great ones, oxtail, roast pork, etc. Sorry, don't know the specific menu item/day.

        Great topic.

          I know I'm missing something obvious... "TCF's"

          1. re: srr

            T is next to R on the keyboard -- probably a mistake

            1. re: srr

              Yes, a typo...should be RCF (Rudy Can't Fail).

            2. re: ML8000

              I would be interested in any reports on the CFS - gravy sounds way different and I don't know if that is in a good way - I like the classic milk & black pepper and even a brown gravy makes it another dish. Adding bacon, mushrooms and beer just seems wrong.

          2. Jimmy Beans has a daily dinner special, $15. Selections are on the website at (in an image so I couldn't cut-and-paste).

              Have you tried any of those dinners? I wonder what Sunday's Mexican Fiesta is; also if the fried chicken is similar to or better than T-Rex's..

              1. re: Glencora

                I keep forgetting. I'd like to try the paella as well.
