I had some mighty good chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes at the T-Bone Steak House in Weatherford, Oklahoma recently.

 
 
We also had great CFS in Oklahoma in 2010, at a campground no less. KOA in Checotah. Super homemade food...delivered to your campsite or eaten in their dining room.

Mmmmmm....




I think my vote is for Chefbubba's version. Man! that gravy looks perfect. Sausage gravy would take away from the taste of the Cf steak.

Chefbuba:  How much of that oil did you use?
 
Your pictures are the Chicken Fried Steak of my dreams.
 
It looks perfect.

ChefB!!!  This looks outrageous.  Do you have any secrets for keeping the breading on?  I have the hardest time with that.  Thanks!

hannahbannah,
Secret to good Turkey Gravy starts with the Stuffing and Turkey prep. If you stuff the bird with a well seasoned stuffing mixture, the flavors of the stuffing will infuse the drippings in the pan. ALWAYS make your gravy in the same pan used to roast the turkey to get every drop of flavor. Using butter to baste the bird adds good flavor. ALWAYS mix your flour & water in a separate bowl before adding it to the pan drippings. Sometimes chicken stock can be mixed with the water. Just Remember, well seasoned Stuffing = Good Gravy!

 
Another excellent way to come out with some good Turkey gravy is to stuff the bird with celery, onion and carrots, start the bird off with most of a bottle of white wine. The resulting gravy is out of this world!

Same here, I tend to make a pretty good CFS but the breading tends to fall off!

CFS is my favorite breakfast, lunch or dinner.  When I make my own, I use McCormick's all purpose batter.  It is a two step process first using dry and then wet.  I add lotsa spices to both including a lot of pepper and Old Bay.  The batter sticks really well and I fry until brown.
 
You can use the crunchies from the fry along with a little of the oil with flour to make the rue and then add milk or water until you get the consistency that you desire.
 
With biscuits, rolls or toast, it is outstanding.  I usually have it with grits or hashbrowns, sliced tomatoes and a couple of fried eggs over hard.  Always grape jelly or orange marmalade.

For me a special "on the road" breakfast  is CFS, Hash-Browns fried very crispy (or home-fries with a lot of peppers and onions mixed in), 3 eggs over medium (yolks runny-whites cooked) Sourdough toast with butter and some good preserves.  Sweet tea for me, please .  I prefer a cup/bowl of gravy on the side to dip or spoon on the meal as it progresses.
  We have found this feast at a number of places around the country...one of our favorites are the Iron Skillets at most of the Petro Brothers Truck Stops.  They do just what I described, plus they ask if you want one CFS or two (7-8 oz each) Two used to be my standard order, but one does it now.

I used to love the CFS at the Flying J truck stops. Unfortunately, they turned their restaurants over to Denny's. Blechhhh!

My favorite place was a truck stop just off the freeway in downtown El Paso, then it changed owners, and they started doing sysco deep fried hockey pucks.  If its not cooked in a pan, and gravy made from the drippings, then its not a good Texas CFS.  
 
One indication your breading is falling off is not enough egg in your dip.

It may be considered CFS heracy, but whenever I order it, I always get the gravy on the side.

Great suggestions and restaurant recommendations! 
 
Another idea I've heard about on the breading issue, but not yet tried, is letting the breaded steaks rest either in the fridge or on the counter for 15 - 30 mins before frying--supposed to "set" the breading.  Time to experiment...
 
Here's another nice article on Texas CFS:

You can find good CFS in any of the plains states with cattle and a German population. Texas,as always, just toots it's own horn continually and loudly.

You are correct, probably one of the finest Chicken Fried Steaks I've had was this beauty at Rooster's Cafe in Jones OK (15 miles outside of downtown OKC)

Whoa--that looks worth driving to from anywhere!!  Not too far off any interstate.  That wasn't sausage in the gravy, though, was it?  That's what they do out here in CA, and I am not a fan.  I want my gravy to come from the steak drippings.

Incidentally, for those of you in North Austin, or are not afraid of a little drive up 183, there's a new place that was an old place in Leander named Mouton's Southern Bistro that makes a CFS on a par with Monument Cafe. I do not say that lightly, neither.
