You might think it silly to order chicken at a steakhouse, but this place makes the best fried chicken fingers you have ever tasted. They have a special recipe and a special dipping sauce that makes you want more. My wife got the Texas potato and soup and salad; a huge sour-creamed affair with a generous plate of greens and a bowl of vegetable soup. Add in the coffee and tip and it cost us about $20 for dinner: that is a good deal of food at a good deal less than I expected.
These restaurants are all over Canada and the U.S. They are heavy dark wood tables with big chairs and booths. The waiters and waitresses are all in teeshirts and jeans. The clientel are all in casual dress and there are plenty of families at dinner time. There is a bar section behind the belly-high wall separating the dinner area from the drinker area.
There wasn't any of the loud Texas music and the staff did not have a Texas accent and that made the experience all the better. The meals were served quickly and the waiter was friendly.
All in all, it was a good eating experience.
