Biggest Damn Chicken Fried Steak In The World – I remember Hickory Hollow from about 20 or 30 years ago, when I lived on Fairbanks-North Houston. They were just "around the bend" on Fallbrook, and I used to drive up there and eat several times a month. (This is LONG before the racetrack was built, and much of Fallbrook and FNH was lightly developed.)
The chicken fried steak was hanging all over the plate... literally! It hung over the sides of the plate, and they used to put (what they called) "River Bottom Mud" gravy on it. Oh! Was it good! That, and a baked potatoe, and a tall iced tea, was still the best artery clogging food I've ever had!
I used to take all my business contacts out there because they wanted a "True Taste of Texas."
I couldn't think of a better place to take them but to the Hickory Hollow. It's true Texas, from the food to the ambience and decor. I loved the music, too. I've never heard the "singing cowboys" anywhere else.
Loved the barbeque, too. But if you want a great steak, or a chicken fried steak, get your butt on over to the Hickory Hollow right now.
Don't wait until tomorrow. Do it now!
Funky Texan cafe serves comfort foods from grilled steaks and ribs to chicken-fried steak. – In Short
Cowboys love this rustic barbecue spot with its wood-plank walls and photos of bluegrass bands. The menu describes the various sizes of chicken-fried steak portions, the biggest being "big as a saddle blanket." The juicy catfish po'boy is enormous and the salad bar comes loaded with pickles, jalapenos and salad greens. Ribs are tender and moist and the house barbecue sauce makes anything taste grand. For sides, go with the onion rings.
COME HUNGRY LEAVE HAPPY – You better have a hell of an apetite when you come cause these are the largest chiken fried steaks around, and the amount you get for the price is awesome if you have kids, gravy taste exactly like my grandma's fried chicken gravy which was AWESOME but night the typical white cream gravy most people associate with CFS, great place to go after/before horse track as well, and wow!!! on the ribs!!!!! tender tasty melt in yo mouth
User review by as1an – Hickory Hollow has one of the largest chicken-fried steak I have ever seen. It covered the entire plate but there's a catch to it, of course. Unfortunately, there's hardly any meat in it once you sliced it up. In my opinion, you might as well call it BATTERED-FRIED STEAK.
thanks for the reviews – I started going to hickory hollow because of the reviews here. I appreciate all of you that put in your detailed reviews of the food. I definetly agree about the ribs. Ribtastic lol ! Now I regularly go in to pick up my to go order. Hate to say this, but there is a difference in quality between drivethrough and going in to the restruant. So my hint is pick up your togo orders inside where you can check it. But other than that, I really like their brisket, not fatty and gristly...perfectly tender and lean. Thanks again to all the reviewers.
Good Bar B Que – Love their bar b que. We go there almost once a week. It is a fast and carefree place to go for good food.
chicken fry steak – I'VE ORDERED A BBQ platter with chicken fried steak and that was the worst chicken fried steak I 've ever had, can barely see the meat in it! Sent them an e-mail and never got a response from them. Will not go back.
Love the Fallbrook Location – We have been dining in or ording take out from Hickory Hollow's Fallbrook location for over 7 years. Great BBQ, generous no-frills self-server salad bar and, by far, the best blueberry pie slices in Houston.
Finger lickin good – Food is great in quanity and quality. Prices are very reasonable and service is excellent.
Best Damn C/F Steak in TEXAS! – This is one of the best places to eat i have ever been to. I have eaten at this place for over 15 years now and it just gets better and better. Well worth the drive for a great chicken fried Steak. They also have Bar B Que that is out of this world. My sister worked there in high school and she still recomends it to all of here freinds.
