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!

Hyde Park Bar and Grill with giant fork

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that we were not always a foodie town, that the current array of tastebud-boggling options was not always on our social menu. So it’s easy for old favorites to get lost in the din of dinnertime dilemmas. Strolling in and sitting down at one of Austin’s two Hyde Park Bar & Grills after not being there for a while and ordering one of their perfect meat-and-two-veg standards, like their pan-roasted chicken with green beans and mashers in a delicate tarragon jus, is much like that first holiday back home after being away at school: The experience is not just nourishing, it’s visceral, packed with mouthfeel memory and the revelation that while we may not have always been a foodie town, we’ve always had someone and somewhere saving us a seat at the table and pointing us in the right direction. — Austin Chronicle

Thank you.  We are so honored.  Come by & get comfortable.

CENTRAL: Check out the new Shipe Park Pool Mural!

By | Central location, Community, Families | No Comments

Our neighbors in historic Hyde Park have outdone themselves once again.

As neighborhoods go, the one from which our restaurant takes its name is one of the most organized, active, passionate, inclusive, diverse, creative and resourceful communities in the city.

They banded together as a community, raised funds, got donations of time and talent, and created a beautiful mural at our beloved Shipe Pool!

Check it out and stop by the unveiling on Saturday to congratulate all concerned.

Congratulations to all involved!
