“My wife and I got sick and tired of chasing from restaurant to restaurant, looking for the perfect country or chicken-fried steak, so we came up with our own. This is much better than most of the "good" places in Houston. It goes great with Dilly Mashed Potatoes and Chive Carrots, submitted separately.”
