Time For Some Country Fried Chili's.

It's one of those days when a craving for a certain dish just doesn't fade away. And when it's a craving for some good old fashioned Southern style Country Fried Steak, you can always count on Chili's to do the job...

The thin slab of beefsteak is tenderized, breaded and deep-fried, smothered with a creamy black pepper gravy. Pair it with some mashed potatoes and sweet corn-on-the-cob, and you've got a classic on a plate.
