Okay, so the chicken fried steak is the dish that really made Clanton’s famous. I consider myself something of a chicken fried steak connoisseur. I’ve had different recipes and such. And, while I loved the chicken and dressing we talked about last time, I have to say that I found this to be extremely overrated. It wasn’t awful, but neither was it anything that would make me come back to a restaurant. Nor would I recommend it to anyone else. The meat wasn’t that flavorful and the breading wasn’t as crispy as I like. Anyway, it’s the signature dish, the one you just HAVE to try when you go to Clanton’s, according to the buzz. But it’s just not that good. I wouldn’t order this one. Other things on the menu, like the chicken and dressing, are much, much better. Recommended against. 2 stars.
Next time, another one from Clanton’s and it’s only the second dessert we’ve talked about so far.
