Best Chicken Fried Steak and eggs in Eureka.

Over the years my taste-buds must do some resetting. Here is the top 5 places to enjoy a good chicken fried steak and eggs.

1. Oberon Grill: Not even close. They pound a New York into submission and it is very tender and tasty. Maybe a little bit pricey but well worth it. Only available on Saturdays and Sundays.

2. The Green Lily Cafe: Very consistent and available all week. The picture above is from their establishment. The setting is kind of weird. Can't put my finger on it. But the food and service is good.

3. The Golden Harvest Cafe: Portion not that great. Used to be my go to but has seemed to slide lately. Too inconsistent for my dollar.

4. The Chalet: Is it open? Do we have to go to the one on 5th? Will they forget us after they take our order? Just not worth it anymore. More than once I have driven to the location in Cutten and it was closed due to worker issues or lack of worker issues. The chicken fried steak and other food is good but not worth the hassle.

5. Kristina's: If the chicken fried steak is so good, why do I always order something else? Hmmm. I eat more meals here than most.

Others to consider Cafe Nooner in Henderson Center, Adels and Amy's Delight (Chicken Fried Pork Steak) and Village Pantry  Don't give me that Toni's argument. They are in Arcata and their chicken fried steaks have been bad last few times I went.

Growing up in Eastern Humboldt County, Chicken Fried Steak used to be one of the main entrees
on the restaurant menus, so much so that when teenagers would go out to the coast on dates,
many kids didn't know what to order and would resort to chicken fried steak as a go to.
There was a story of a girl on a date with a guy at the Rib Room inside the Eureka Inn and became quite flustered when they didn't feature chicken fried steak on the menu. It was one of those "you can take the girl out of the mountains, but you can't take the mountains out of the girl" situations.

Most chicken fried steaks breading and gravy are too salty for my taste. I prefer the more exotic Eggs Benedict choices at local restaurants. Believe it or not, my personal favorite is at the Woodrose Cafe in Garberville, even though I swore I would never step foot into that pinko-commie hippie locally-sourced organic vegan joint. Sometimes your better half makes better decisions for you on dining choices.

Ross: Funny you should say that, I went to the Oberon Saturday and the breading was kind of overwhelming pasty and salty. But I forged my way with courage and managed almost finish it all!

I hadn't had a Chicken Fried Steak in years but your photo made me hankering for one Rich.

So I went to my favorite breakfast place this morning, The Chalet on 5th street, and had a great one.

This recipe looks yummy, delicious and healthy. I eat this food every morning. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. I know a Indian Restaurant in Geneva they also service this type of delicious food.

Hmm... It seems very delicious. Let's try Biryani which is a traditional food in South Asia. You can get Biryani to form any Indian Restaurant in Geneva.
