I remember trying Michelob Ultra at a pizza place. My buddy and I were looking to see what the place had on tap. This was right when Michelob Ultra came out, and I had not seen any ads for it yet. The guy at the pizza place let me try a bit because I expressed some interest in it--I mean, it has the word "Ultra" in it, right? Wrong. Man, that stuff tasted bad. Still gives me the shivers thinking about it.

Good story BigJ.
I can't wait for the next time i head down to Texas. I believe my next trip is to Dallas though (possibly Peru first) so any visititations may require some extra travelling.
I'm not much for poker but along the same lines, i'm not much for Micheolb Ultra either. I would join you with the Trippel GRATEFULLY anytime.

Is there really such a thing as chicken fried steak? Or is this some kind of urban myth?

What I want to know is, how do you get the chickens to do the frying? Can they really handle a skillet?

Friend of mine is a Bud distributer. They have high hopes for the new 16oz bottles. They do look neat and I understand will chill very quickly.

chess- no urban legend. chicken fried steak is very real, and VERY delicious.

its usually made with a lesser cut of steak, like cube steak or round steak. its tenderized, then seasoned and breaded, and fried in oil, much like you would do to fried chicken. it somes out crispy golden on the outside, with the steak nice and juicy on the inside. always smothered in a cream gravy, and served with mashed potatoes and a slice of texas toast(thats how i like it).. its very delicious, and is a menu standard at most every texas restaurant. i highly suggest for you to try one while down here. and to me, the best chicken fried steak is at your local mom & pops type restaurants, 'greasy spoons' as we like to call them. the major chains are never as good.

hope you have a good trip, and let me know what you think of the 'chicken fry' if you get one!!

BigJ,
That is unfortunate then. During my week long trip to Austin, not a single restaurant in the downtown had it, at least none that we came across including some steak houses. In fact, the only place that did serve it was the upstairs lounge in our hotel, and you know how typically low brow the pub fare can be in hotel bars.

Chicken fried steak, good eating!

That reminds me whenever I was working near Lubbock, a little town called Idalou. There was a little hole in the wall resturant that absolutely had the best BBQ brisket I ever had, they'd make you one of those juices running down the elbows hamburgers that had a pattie the sized of a small saucer and about an inch thick. Anyway, a co-worker friend from North Dakota and I went there for lunch one day and I ordered whatever with some fried okra, the dude looked at the fried okra and asked me 'what in the heck is that?'...this 36 year old fella had never in his life seen fried okra! I was amazed, heck I thought everybody ate fried okra.

About those little beer cans, I worked in Arkansas with a guy that would buy them because he could slug one or two of 'em down while his airplane was being loaded for another crop dusting job! I've worked with numerous folks from all over the US for a lot of years but he was the first that I had ever come across who drank while flying.

i would normally be very surprised by that statement, but then i have to remember you were in austin. they do everything a little different down there. the attitude of the whole city, is to do stuff different than everyone else. they even have t-shirts with the motto, "Keep Austin Weird".. so, i cant be too surprised that you couldnt find a good chicken fry down there.

i am slightly surprised that you couldnt find it at a steak house. most ALL texas steak houses offer a chicken fry. it is often considered a 'poor mans' meal, so if they were higher end restaurant, they might have considered it beneath them, if you know what i mean. either way, i hope you are able to find a good chicken fry plate on a return visit.
