Making Dallas Even Better

Checking in on Ranchman’s Café in Ponder, Texas

I just received an email from a reader. She asked if Ranchman’s Café in Ponder, Texas was still good. The small comfort food restaurant, which has been open since 1948, used to serve the best chicken fried steak and pies in the area. The kitchen used to pan-fry a thick T-bone steak. Now they use pounded patties. I haven’t been since October, 2009 when I wrote this post which includes a video of them making CFS. when I shot this video. Any of you been recently?

    I was there three weeks ago, and it’s still really good.

    I forgot about this place. Used to drive up on Sundays. Thanks for reminding me.
