    Why not chicken fried steak for breakfast? Throw some eggs and hash browns on the plate with it, a side of toast, your favorite breakfast beverage... That's some good eatin'! ;)

    Close enough. A couple of biscuits slathered in the same gravy on the chicken-fried steak in place of that side o’ toast and you got something worth fighting for.

    I don't know how the rest of the parts of the country live, but down here in the south chicken fried steak is a pretty standard offering for breakfast, with a couple of eggs and usually a big pile of grits, all smothered in gravy, or stuck between two halves of a biscuit if you're on the go.

    Now I'm ready to eat

    Sounds like a Cracker Barrel run, Cuz. They've got it all there. Chicken fried steak for breakfast? I'm in.

    I need to get down south or out west to get the kind of chicken fried steak I like. Battered, deep fried, and hanging over the side of the plate. Around here you get a breaded tenderized steak that's about 4" in diameter.

    My favorite place for the tasty dish is the H3 Ranch in Ft. Worth, which has as much to do with the fact that it's in Ft. Worth as the quality of the meal (which is really good).

    Long since lost its neon. I saw the place was condemned by the city recently, so I guess the rest will be gone soon enough, too[​IMG]

  12. You should check the tax plat map and see if the owner would let you have it (if the place ends up being demolished). Would make a cool piece of art if nothing else. At least get the arrow ...

    I'm always in search of a good chicken fried steak. They are hard to find around these parts. I've had a lot of sorry ones that my waitress assured me were good when I ordered it. A frozen disc of pressed beef is not a chicken fried steak.

    Randomly stumbled across this one in downtown Chattanooga. I wonder if frog legs were the house specialty?[​IMG]

    I walked across 4 lanes of traffic to get this one. No way I wasn't getting a shot of it. Circa 1930s, what's left of the old lodge is now someone's private residence. Talk about a dream home.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Not at all, was hoping to find this lit up too but the owner said it needs some repairs.

    I just had to see if they had a website, and found this. Not the best picture, but it gives you some idea of what it looks like. If I wasn't on the other side of the country, I'd have to make a stop:
