Hill Country Cupboard

Highway 281, Johnson City, TX - (830) 868-4625
Posted By Carol Bayer on 4/23/2013 12:57:00 PM
Hill Country Cupboard serves one of the best chicken-fried steaks I have ever had, perfectly breaded and cooked and served with delicious green beans (cooked with bacon) and just OK mashed potatoes. The gravy could use a little more flavor, but it complements the meat well. My husband had the catfish and found it outstanding.

Good service, OK atmosphere, and great price. Definitely worth the stop.

The portion of mashed potatoes looks small only because the steak is so huge.  This is an unusual photo because there is no gravy on the steak or on the potatoes.  We asked for gravy on the side, so as to study the crust before pouring it on.  It is a lovely, crunchy, delicious crust!

If you enjoy custard pies, Hill Country Cupboard's slightly tart buttermilk pie is worth seeking out.

Sausage, beef brisket, and turkey, sided by beans on the left and sauce on the right, with pickles and onion to refresh the palate.

This is not a trick photo.  Hill Country Cupboard serves its tea in giant-size glasses.

The Hill Country Cupboard is in Johnson City, named not for its famous son, L.B.J., but for James Polk Johnson some time late in the 19th century. It is said that LBJ preferred chili to chicken-fried steak.
