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!

Hipstercrite names us one of “Austin’s Best Restaurants That Don’t Cost An Arm And A Leg”

Hipstercrite, a.k.a. Lauren Modery, covers pop culture & lifestyle in the ATX

There’s a blogger in Austin you really should make it a point to read: Hipstercrite, created by the lovely  and talented 20-something writer / filmmaker / fashion & design maven Lauren Modery.

She’s a New York transplant by way of LA who wised up and made the move to Austin just in time to build an enthusiastic following for her lively, entertaining blog and be named Austin’s “Blogger of the Year” at the Austin Blogger Awards in 2010. Her work has been mentioned in Texas Monthly, Mental Floss, Mashable, HuffingtonPost, Houston Chronicle, Le Temps and Le Soir.  The short film she co-wrote and co-produced,  Loves Her Gunwon the Louis Black Lone Star award at SXSW 2013.

Creative and resourceful, she’s exactly the kind of person we want to have make our fair, weird city home.  So we urge you to read her work, hire her to write for you, support her film projects, and say howdy when you see her.

She recently named Hyde Park Bar & Grill, along with several of our long-time restaurant brethren in a list of  “Austin’s Best Restaurants That Don’t Cost An Arm and a Leg.”   We are pleased and flattered and wanted to return the favor, hence this tip of our hat to you, Hipstercrite.  May Austin be the home that you want it to be!
