The Cliff House in Stamford is famous for its chicken-fried steak. I tried a regular one last Saturday night and it was excellent. “Come back on Wednesday,” the waitress told me. That’s the night they offer their “Chicken-fried Steak Special.” It’s a full cut of bottom round steak, tenderized and batter-fried, and it is said to be larger than the plate.
Stamford is an hour north of Abilene, which would make it about a seven-hour drive from my house. I figure I would have to leave by 10 a.m. to get there in time for dinner.
