This latest Eastside foodery has freshened up an old concept – the ranch restaurant. Cocktails are served at the glam ranch bar. The chicken-fried steak is tender and well-flavored, the breading is light and crisp, and most importantly, the cream gravy is made from real pan drippings and not from a mix.
The anachronistic friendliness of the service welcomes, while the Breaux Bridge Benedict seals the deal at brunch. Exuberantly rouxed pork grillades over creamy grits may compete at midday, but at dinner the crawfish étouffée rules.
This friendly neighborhood dive bar serves boozy drinks and Southern fare.
