Lest you think we did breakfast at Sammy's once and never returned over a slightly crappy Belgian waffle, I'm here to provide a follow-up on a very afternoon visit to my new favorite place to eat in Castroville.
You can click the link above if you are not familiar with Sammy's or the crappy Belgian waffle, otherwise I'll jump right into it. We had been hitting some thrift shops on San Antonio's south east side looking for an ugly sweater for me to wear to a Christmas luncheon when it occurred to me that we hadn't eaten lunch and it was already nearing dinner time. There are so many possibilities for Mexican food, burgers, and other assorted girth increasing fare, but Eva and I both thought it'd be worth the drive to Castroville to see what Sammy's had to offer.
Once inside, we saw the special for a Saturday afternoon was Chicken Fried Steak. No need to even peruse the menu further; CFS, indeed!
Lulu's on Main in San Antonio, a place we love to go to, but in all honesty, in terms of taste and enjoyment, Sammy's is the new king in my CFS book. In fact, simultaneously, Eva and I told one another, "This is better than Lulu's." The biggest immediate difference is the breading. Sammy's CFS is fairly lightly breaded meaning that you can easily cut into it, take a well seasoned bite and not feel as though you are getting more chicken fried than steak.
