Had the (2) T-Bone dinners Friday night, 05/30/2014 @ 19:24. Horrible steaks. Mostly gristle and fat. Advised the cashier but she said nothing. Eat here 8-10 times per year. Hoping that it was just (2) bad steaks. If we return, will just get chopped steak or chicken-fried steak.

The rustic scenery is also nice to look at. Everything I have ordered there has been really good food. The Chicken Fried Steak is "Enormous" and no... More

The chicken fried steak is great - and a large portion - and that was the small portion order. The whole table couldn't even imagine how big the large chicken fried steak must be. I must admit, I had been there many years ago, and didn't want to go the other night after reading comments (I hate smokey places). But... More

Just had lunch and my husband ordered the CFS and I had the chicken strips. The chicken strip dinner was way too much food so I took half of it in a to go box. The large CFS dinner had a steak that was so large it would have easily fed three hefty adult men. My husband declared it the... More

I've been going there for a few years now. I love the Chicken Fried Steak.. However the place is too darn smokey. My child has asthma and I dare not take him there although I would love too.

Very good chicken fried steak. It's a legend, and the legend is perhaps slightly better than the food. Service was very slow.

Decent food, and their chicken fried steak is very good. But it's ALWAYS smokey in the restaurant. I'd go there more often but the smoke bothers me.
