The sign on the side of the building!

     Oh, my goodness!  I had the GREAT pleasure in reviewing Kendall's Restaurant.  Kendall's is located in lovely Noble, Oklahoma and is known far and wide for the Chicken Fried Steak Challenge.

 To give you an idea of the size of chicken fried steak you get for the challenge, check out the photo below.

Don't worry, you only have to eat one of the platters.  lol

       We did not do the challenge but we did eat a "regular" chicken fried steak and believe me, it is the largest CFS I have ever attempted to eat.  Their regular sized steak is about twice as big as most peoples.  Not only is the steak big but it is so good.  No fat or gristle in any of it.  The coating is crisp and the steak is tender.  Even under all the gravy, the coating stayed crisp.

       This is Bub's meal.  I know it may not look huge here but keep in mind that they serve your food on dinner PLATTERS.  The chicken fried steak can be compared to a 9" pie plate.  Look at the fork in the upper left hand side.  That is a normal sized fork so that will give you an idea on how big they are.

       The mashed potatoes are creamy and smooth and their gravy is seasoned perfect.  I could almost drink the gravy it is so good.  All the food is good ole southern comfort food at its finest.  Their rolls are nice and fluffy.  Everything we ate was delicious!!!

        Before we ate, I had a chance to sit down with the co-owners Kim & D and ask them some questions about the food, the history and about anything I could think of.  They are such nice people, it was a true pleasure to visit with them.  That interview is found below:



         I have watched it a few times because I find it all so interesting.  The Chicken Fried Steak Challenge includes the massive steak but also veggies, etc.  As you heard in the video they have about 100 people a MONTH try the challenge and only 35 people have EVER completed it.  Out of probably 10,000 people who have tried it...only 35 but if you are one of the ones who complete it, you go up on the "Wall of Fame".


     Also if you fail to complete the Chicken Fried Steak Challenge you take home the leftovers in the "Quitter Box".



        We live about 3 1/2 hours away from Noble, OK but the food was worth the drive.  The restaurant has a World Map on the wall with a push pin marking the location of people who have come to taste their food.  As you can see, it is an impressive array.


        I can see why people would visit from far and wide.  The atmosphere is nice and the walls are decorated with nostalgia.  The people are down home and friendly.  While we were there, we even seen Kim (the co-owner) bussing the tables.  They are just generally good people with no airs about them at all.

      About everything they make there is done by hand.  No fancy machinery.  Just people doing the real work.  They make cinnamon rolls from scratch and about any time you drop by there will be an employee rolling out the dough and making them.  They had just prepared a batch right before we left.  Don't they look yummy?

Some of the cinnamon rolls they make each day by hand.


      Before you go, you can even buy some cinnamon rolls to take home with you.  They have Pumpkin flavor, regular, Maple Bacon, or Chocolate.  You can buy a package of 4 for just $5.00.

      We bought a few a package of chocolate and had them the next morning for breakfast.  We took them from the freezer, threw them in the microwave for 2 minutes and they tasted as fresh as if they had just been made!

      They also have their own signature coffee.  We got a pound of it and Ron says it is the best and smoothest coffee he has EVER had in his life.  He said we'll have to drive back sometime just to purchase some more.

     I have no problem going back but for me, I would go back to get a burger.  I went on and on about their Chicken Fried Steak and yes, it was DELICIOUS but we ordered a "Widowmaker" burger to take home with us and late that night, I had a bite of it before going to bed and almost died right there.  Oh wow!  By far, that is the BEST burger I have EVER tasted in my life.  Not sure what they do different or if it's the meat they purchase but it was glorious.  It is also huge and I let Ron and the boys and my Mother-in Law all have some of it and they all agreed with me.  That burger ALONE is worth a 3 1/2 hour car ride.

  1. I have always wanted to go to Oklahoma, but have never made it. I may have to go now. LOL! Those meals looks delicious, but I would not try that challenge either as I would be taking home a quitter box.
