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!
