Needed to mention this earlier, but for those who ever drive on I-35 near Waco, you have to make a point to eat at Heitmiller Family Steakhouse in Elm Mott.
203 Connally Dr
Elm Mott, TX 76640
Ate there the other day after a neighbor, who is a massive UT fan, suggested it because it's a stopping point between Austin and Fort Worth.
The man is 100 percent accurate - this is an affordable and outstanding steak. I ordered the 12 oz. ribeye with fries and mushrooms.
The chicken fried steak is recommended, but I can only do so much chicken fried steak in two weeks. The steak was juicy, big and loaded with the perfect amount of marble (a cute way to say "fat").
