I was so looking forward to an awesome steak dinner. The parking lot was packed - good sign! Server friendly and interesting rustic Texas memorabilia decor. Nice Texas Teaser cocktails. Hubby got prime rib and it was quite good with a lovely smoke flavor. Creamy...gravy on potatoes was good. Biquits and sqaw rolls good - along with simple but tasty garden salad. Then there were the 2 rib eye steaks....quite possibly the worst steak I have ever had. My 20 something son ate his out of sheer hunger - I left over half of mine and declined a to go box. The steak was grey in color - no grill marks, no crispness at all, it looked and cut like rubber. Both looked that way and claimed to be medium rare - but it was a grey pink in side too. YUCK - so unappealing. Then it had no taste "lightly salted" would be a generous description. My son's steak was a slightly less gristly piece = mine was gross with so much stringy stuff in it that I could not easily cut it with my dull steak knife let alone chew it. Seriously how was this prepared - it looked like it was boiled or maybe baked - steaks should have some kind of sear and be pink to slightly bloody inside for medium rare. So so disappointed. Too bad - would like to have enjoyed a $25 steak instead of throwing it away.More

TexAZ has been an institution in Phoenix for awhile and they have staying power! We had Chicken Fried Steak and BBQ ribs (about $15 a plate). They served complimentary bread items which were fine. Wine prices were reasonable for Phoenix at $6 for a glass...of house cab. We could not eat all the food and packed off enough for another meal. . Portions were Texas sized! If comparing their food with comparable menu items in Texas they hold their own. Not great, but tasty and that is a compliment from a Texan. I would go back. Of particular note, the cole slaw was very good. Mashed potatoes and gravy, not bad. The Chicken Fried Steak (petite portion) was plenty to SHARE! As an aside, they have steaks, which looked appetizing, but I did not have one. The prime rib I saw was thick and juicy.More

Stopped in at the Texaz Grill for lunch on New Years Eve. I arrived at 11:15 and there were a handful of full tables plus more folks at the bar. Walking in, I felt it was a throwback to a neighborhood bar and grill. Nearly...every square inch of the walls (and ceiling) was covered with photos, old metal signs, posters, hats and military momentos. Casual country music played in the background of the dimly lit bar and grill. I was cheerfully greeted right away, offered a booth or bar stool and ordered their ‘Famous Chicken Fried Steak’. The CFS was easily the size of my hand with fingers spread wide. The breading was nicely seasoned but, sadly, fell off the steak with almost every bite. Overall I think I would order it again tho. The skin-on mashed potatoes were outstanding. Perfectly seasoned, healthy portion and a big scoop of the yummy gravy. I’m also came with a healthy helping of corn and a buttermilk biscuit. The corn was good with the potatoes but the biscuit was very dry, even after the pat of butter. I added an iced tea for a total of $15.20 plus tip. Casual country music played in the background of the dimly lit bar and grill. Return visit? Probably. Best CFS ever? Probably not. Still good tho.More

This restaurant is like a Texas roadhouse with all the memorabilia and decorations they have - business cards on the ceiling and baseball caps hanging from the rafters. We arrived at 6:00 so we had just missed happy hour. The special of the day was...barbecue beef ribs but they were sold out. Our waitress went back to the kitchen and checked. She told me I could have a 1/2 order of the ribs as that was all that was left. The cost would be $9.50 for 3 ribs. The normal order is 5 ribs. I ordered the ribs and my husband had the rib steak. A hot biscuit and roll were brought to the table. Dinner includes the rolls, salad or coleslaw and mashed potatoes with gravy or Texas fries. The salad was a large portion and there is the option to have olives put on top. The salad was good with nice fresh ingredients. The beef ribs were huge and filled my plate. They were decent but I found them to be just a bit too salty and a bit tough. I also did not care for the mashed potatoes with cream gravy. I much prefer regular gravy as I find it has more flavour. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his rib steak and he was pleasantly surprised by how good it was for the price. It was also cooked perfectly and very tender. The service was very good considering how busy they were. I would try Texas Grill again but I would order the Texas Fries next time.More

Another gem only known by locals. Decades ago it was known as Lone Star but a big outfit came into town and lawyer-ed them out of the name. Have been eating there since the late 80s. Best chicken fried steak in Phoenix

So I feel that I need to put this out here. I was skeptical about the new ownership taking over the place and was worried the food would go down hill. It did not. They do now charge for extra gravy with the Chicken Fried...Steak which is a shame BUT its still as good as ever. Lets hope it stays that way.More

Before I retired out of state I frequented this restaurant for many years. I often referred folks there for the best chicken fried steak in the valley. Returning to eat there after being gone for twelve years my expectation ran high. The chicken fried steak...was over battered and very thin. The service was great. I love the feel of this Texas like roadhouse, but I will not be returning.More

Had a quick bit of catfish and fries. Quaint little place full of locals telling stories. The atmosphere is all Texas. The only drawback is the parking....so Uber here and have a beer

Sue, Thanks for mentioning out catfish. It's a very popular item and sometimes gets overshadowed by the CFS. Sorry about the parking, trust me, we know.

This is the place to get your carbs. Servings are HUGE, hubby and I could have easily shared a single order of chicken fried steak. It comes with two plate size steaks which are fork tender. Someone else in our party got the fried shrimp...which was also a huge serving, she said it was delicious. We took home more food than we ate. Friendly atmosphere for the kids, good kids menu. It's a big menu but with only one salad you won't find much if you want to eat on the lighter side. That's the only reason I subtracted one star, but to be fair the restaurant is excellent at what they do.More

Actually, all lunches and dinners are great but I love going on Saturday! Well known for their chicken fried steak but they serve delicious beef steaks and burgers. Fun, relaxed family. This place is fairly unique which makes it all the more enjoyable. Originally named...Lone Star, they (as I have been told) had to change the name because of the now defunct (nearly) Lone Star Steakhouse. Guess that chain of 267 locations just was not as good as this single Phoenix restaurant!More
