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!

As it turns out, you actually can teach an old dog new tricks.

Old Dog Learns How To Take Reservations

After almost 30 years in business, we’ve added a new trick to our repertoire:  We’re now taking reservations on a selected basis.

(“Selected basis?”  What do we mean by that?)

You see, it’s important to us to continue to be able to accommodate our many customers who come into the restaurant in a completely spontaneous fashion.   The walk-ins, the free spirits, the whimsters, the people who just up and say “hey, let’s go to Hyde Park Bar & Grill” on the spur of the moment.   We can’t let those folks down by having every table reserved.

But for our friends who like to plan ahead, we’re now making selected tables available for reservations.

Reservations at Hyde Park Bar & Grill:

  1. Call or click on these links to reserve at Central (Duval) or South (Westgate).
  2. Reserve your table.   We save the exact number of seats you enter — no more, no less.  And we’ll hold the table for you for up to 15 minutes after your reservation time.
  3. NOTE:  If a reservation is not available, there are tables available on a first come, first serve basis.   Feel free to inquire about walk-in table availability and whether there is an expected wait time.
