Old Town Spring began as a railroad town in the late 1800’s and has been revitalized over the past years into a great place for entertainment, shopping and eating.
PuffaBelly’s is only 15 years young, but the building is only 10 years old due to a fire that burned it to the ground. This building is rich in history and you can find the entire story by clicking here.
Now for the reason for my visit. I went to Wunche Bros. Café across the street from PuffaBelly’s a few weeks ago and I wanted to compare. Well the verdict is in and it’s not close.
Drum roll please .
Wunche Bros. is Udderly better. Here are the PuffaBelly’s Chicken Fried Steak facts.
They do use Angus beef which is a plus, but that’s the only plus. The breading is about 1/2” bigger than the steak (the wait staff had no idea how many oz. I would say it was 8 oz.), but it was crispy and tasty on top. The bottom was very greasy. The meat was tender, but 1/2 of the meat was highly seasoned while the other 1/2 had minimal seasoning. The white gravy was good, but needed a little help. The CFS comes with 2 sides. I chose the mashed potatoes which were warm to cool, but tasty when dipped in the gravy, and the green beans which were very good except for the wimpy bacon (see picture). You will also see the roll that comes with it. Udderly, not worth the calories. There were peanuts in the shell on the tables, but mine were stale.
