Frank's Restaraunt - Shulenburg, TX

You may know Frank’s for their famous “Shulenburger” Burger but there is more to know. I sampled their CFS on the last leg of a trip and enjoyed it immensely.

It was simple, petite and magnificent. Her diminutive size belied her flavor packed punch. The creamy gravy cascaded over the crispy breading like a glorious waterfall – just enough gravy to entertain each bite. Mashed potatoes accompanied and were lumpy and starchy – the perfect compliment to a perfectly cooked steak and just salty enough breading. The only vegetable in sight was a sprig of parsley (which I declined to eat for health reasons).

So, next time you stop, order up the CFS if you’re looking for a burger alternative. Just expect to be very sleepy afterwards.

If you ever decide to continue on I-10 and head to West Texas, the restaurant at the Hotel Paisano in Marfa serves a good chicken fried steak. It's breaded with pistachio nuts (which make it nice and crispy) and served over a bed of jalapeno cream gravy. I'd be interested to read what you think of it...
