I like Mary's, usually eat the chicken livers and have a few schooners. I don't consider the CFS the best, it is fairly decent though.

Definitely one of the biggest CFS in the state, lol. I should have got the small last time I went. After eating that big CFS, I was sleepy all the way home.

I must have hit them on an off day. I had never been and went a month or so ago and was disappointed after all the hype. I thought the CFS was mediocre at best and the sides were worse. A big CFS does not mean a good CFS. I may give them another try, but I can get a better CFS here in Nac.

I hunted in Strawn for about 10yrs and always loved Mary's CFS. Been a few years though. And surprisingly for being out in the middle of nowhere they used to have excellent oysters on the half shell.

Yeah, we must have hit them on an off day, too....seriously a 'meh' at best...The food wasn't good, and the service wasn't any better. I won't try them again.

You can swap that salad for more fries.
One of the best things about my hunting lease. It's only about 20 minutes to Mary's and even less to New York Hill.

I believe they have a notion to leave the grease in too long at times. I've had some old grease tasting in there before, but for the most part, there's also been times that I thought it was the best CFS I've ever had. I've lived in TX for 16 years, and I've been there prob 15 times. So that would mean that I like it a lot.

Yes it's pan fried. (actually cooked on a flat-top griddle with canola oil)

I 've eaten at Mary's many times over the years but my last visit definitely wasn't up to snuff. CFS was just ok, and the mashed potatoes were way over-peppered. Think I'll stick with Horseshoe Hill (Grady Spears newest place) in the Ft. Worth Stockyards - they have the best CFS I've ever had

I had the same experience. It seemed very over priced as well.

Need to try the Horseshoe Hill for CFS when i am in town next month.
CFS that comes with ancho chili cheese enchiladas, you will have to wheel me out of there!

You won't regret going to Horseshoe Hill - Definitely the best CFS I ever put a tooth in!

I actually prefer the CFS that comes with a cheese chile Relleno over the ancho enchiladas but you can't go wrong either way.

Last 2 times at Mary's were less than satisfactory.Seems the bigger they got the more inconsistent they have become,we won't be back.That'salso a feeling shared by several locals.

Drove two hours to eat at Mary's and we all said it was pushing it to even call their CFS mediocre. Greasy for sure, and so tough a steak knife wouldn't even cut it. Been wanted to try Horseshoe Hill for sure. If you're looking for small town diner with excellent food you need to go to Hubbard City Cafe. Their CFS is great, well everything there is great.

When you consider the large CFS at Mary's is $16.50 the prices at Horseshoe Hill aren't all that bad. I can honestly say the meals I've had at Horseshoe Hill were worth every penny - I can't say that about my last couple of trips to Mary's.

Will give it a try next time out that way, We had a darn good CFS at The Green Frog in Jacksboro this past weekend.
Lunch Buffet"all you can eat" was all home cooking just like grandma raised me on, peppered gravy and homemade rolls included for 9.95. We were Tango Uniform by the time we got to the deer lease and were able to sleep it off. food peep

I've been three times, first time was great, second time was average and today's was easily the best chicken Fried steak I've ever had. Consistency seems to be their biggest problem.

It is worth the stop especially if you want some home country cooking next time your through there, you will enjoy country boy food I may be passing through there this Saturday after a duck hunt up around PK this Saturday if wife is with me, we will stop for sure and she will most likely request a full order again scared peep

Riata (sp) in Alpine was the best CFS I've ever had. Even bought their cookbook and now do them myself at home in a big cast iron skillet with their cream gravy. GREAT
Mary's is known for their CFS but I too have been disappointed the last few times I've been there. The service help is terrible. It's probably difficult even getting folks to work out there.
My family is all from Strawn area so we know it well.

I love Mary's but I have to say the last time we went for my parent's anniversary the service was HORRIBLE. 1 hour to get a table and then over an hour to get our food and then it came at different times. I had my food for 20 min before my kids got theres. Dad got his hamburger steak but didn't get his fries till 20 minutes later. Took forever to check out too. They knocked off $20 off our bill when we complained but still didn't excuse the service.
Overall we were there nearly 3 hours. Not a good anniversary to say the least for my parents.

I've eaten there every opening day of Dove season for years and years. It's a tradition. I know Mary and have sold her steaks for her chicken fry in the past.
I still love it and will continue to eat there.

But in my opinion, Babe's is better. Much better.

Mary's is way overrated, hot, flies and cig smoke. Not my idea of a good meal. Next time around Breckenridge try Sissy's on 183, way better CFS imo..

I know this thread is older than the hills but 4 pages and a year later and still no mention of the Smokestack? Can't let that slide, they are my favorite in that part of the country.

We stopped at Babe's in Sanger last night, loved the CFS, and the "grandma's house" concept was enjoyable-

I ate there last month and the CFS was very good, Me and the wife split a medium and there was plenty. The total bill was under $16.00. Overall a very good experience.

Sissy’s has its share of smoke the last time I was there. That was a couple years ago though.
Did they cut out the smoke.

By the way I agree on Mary’s. I never have liked the place.

Have never smelled cig smoke or ever seen anyone smoking at Sissys.

Totally agree, same thing happened to me. I was disappointed too. Have not been back since.

Ive had every CFS listed above. They are good.

Mary's is different

It has good days and bad days, but IMO Mary's wins Texas's best CFS every year for a reason. That's a pretty impressive feat.

I'd heard about that place for years and probably drove past the turn off 5oo times before I took a notion to drive the 5 miles or whatever out of the way off 20 to eat dinner one night. It was good, but not what i was expecting given all the hype over the 2o or so years I'd been hearing about it. At least they didn't mess it up. For a long time I thought a CF steak was one of those things that you couldn't hardly screw up but I learned different about that a time or two. Not saying that Mary's was bad at all so don't take this as a diss on them, - just not quite what i thought it would be. I have since eaten about the best one I have ever tasted and for the life of me I can't remember now where that place was. If I finally recall it I'll make a separate thread about it. That sucker was some kind of fine - best I've ever eaten. Wait!! it just hit me . Settles Hotel in downtown Big Spring TX. I promise you won't regret it. There is people that drive plumb from Midland just to eat it there!
