Is it possible for a restaurant to do one dish too well? I'm starting to think so.
Sometimes, no matter how deep, how tempting and how well-crafted the rest of the menu is, I'm so hooked on one standout specialty that I simply can't bring myself to try anything else.
Here are 10 dishes so good that I've mentally ordered them the moment I walk in the door.
Chicken-Fried Steak at Texaz Grill, 6003 N. 16th St., Phoenix, (602) 248-7827. Sure, the T-bone and filet look good. But the he-man-size chicken-fried steak is a proven winner, tender enough to cut with a fork, encased in crisp batter and bathed with thick, peppery country gravy. Great skin-on mashed spuds alongside, too.
