Madison's on Dowlen in Beaumont, TX - Chicken Fried Steak ReviewMadison’s looks like it’s a great place to enjoy a cold one after work, or watch sports, or listen to some good live music at night. Typical chain style menu items, but it’s not. It does have a very good Chicken Fried Steak, with a twist. The twist is they use fajita meat (skirt steak).

This is a first for me.  The Madison's on Dowlen in Beaumont, TX - Chicken Fried Steak Reviewskirt steak is marinated in a great seasoning which makes the meat very tender and juicy. The breading is very crispy and stayed on the steak. There was no grease factor. The white gravy had a good texture and could have used a little more seasoning, but the highly seasoned steak made up for it. The lunch portion is 4 ounces and costs $7.99 but only comes with one side and a yeast roll. I chose the garlic mashed potatoes. Not much of a garlic taste but they were good. The regular portion (8 oz.) is $10.99 and comes with 2 sides and the roll.

After eating so many different Chicken Fried Steaks, when I took my first bite of the Fajita Chicken Fried Steak, I was a little taken aback. I wasn’t sure what to think. I kept wavering between good to very good. So take a look at the rating below to see where it wound up.
