The Story of Chicken Fried Steak

Was it Jimmy Don Perkins or John “White Gravy” Neutzling?

Like many a Texas icon, the history of Chicken Fried Steak is slathered in politics.

First off, you’ve got your Oklahomans who like to think they invented Chicken Fried Steak.  They made it their official state dish in 1988.

We Texans know that dipper don’t hold water.

Then you’ve got Lamesa, a little town just shy of Lubbock. They hold that the first chicken fried steak was made there 100 years ago on accident by short order cook Jimmy Don Perkins.  They even convinced the Texas Lege to pass a law naming the town the “Legendary Home of the Chicken-fried Steak” in 2011.

But hold on — folks from Bandera claim that their own John “White Gravy” Neutzling was the first to bread a steak and chicken-fry it, long before Lamesa’s Jimmy Don was a gleam in his daddy’s eye.

Here at Hyde Park Bar & Grill in Austin, we don’t have a dog in the fight. We’ve served Chicken Fried Steaks since 1982, and our is Texas-Independence good.  Come & get it!

Eat Tony’s Southern Fried Chicken every Mon & Tues after 5pm!

By | Central location, Food, Signature Dishes, South location | No Comments

You may have heard about Tony’s Southern Fried Chicken from Texas Monthly or Rob Balon or one of the many highly respected Austin food bloggers.  You may have heard that this chicken is THE classic Southern Fried Bone-In Chicken, so good it could make you elbow your grandma out of a church supper buffet line. So good we have to treat like a controlled substance. Offered only on Mondays and Tuesdays so we have time to put in the LOVE.

If so, you heard right.

The secrets to perfect fried chicken lie in the meat preparation, the breading, and in clean, high quality oil held at the ideal temperature throughout the vat.  It takes special attention and time.  That’s why we offer this dish only on Monday & Tuesday nights, which are typically less crowded than the weekends, at a time when we can give this chicken the care it deserves.   But be aware:  this chicken’s so good, we’ve been known do land office business on Mondays & Tuesdays, so come on in early before we run out!

Ryan Sponsler Art on “the Island” at Hyde Park South, April 11 – May 30

By | Art, South location | No Comments

There’s an area at Hyde Park South that, for our art display purposes, we call “the Island” — a wood-covered wall with booths on each side.  It’s ideal for smaller pieces that benefit from a more intimate viewing experience.

April 11 through May 30, 2015 we’ll be showing the imaginative work of Ryan Sponsler on the Island at Hyde Park South.  Ryan’s art reflects his belief that “a painting is an object in itself.”  Let’s just say he thinks out of the box.

RyanAndBoxes

 

 

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

“A painting is an object in itself. It should not simply be used as a picture plane to hold the representation of an image. The entire structure of the painting; the materials, the paint, the colors, the forms, the textures, the composition all contribute to the unified presence of the work revealing a truer reality that lurks beneath the surface of everything. To demonstrate this I removed the picture plane making deconstructed paintings. Each work is an experiment which leads to new ideas to play around with and explore.”

To experience Ryan’s art, ask to sit in the Island area for an up close and personal view of this unique work!
