agreeing with jmorri26...I live in Fort Worth Tx, and depending on the restaurant, chicken fried steak comes with white or brown gravy, or "naked"

You know what, I answered no about the Chicken Fried Steak thought everything I know about them is that it comes with white gravy- once I moved to Dallas I learned that at many many places I've order chicken or country fried steak what you get back is a big deep fried battered piece of meat- no gravy. I've more often than not had to ask while ordering if I could get white gravy on it, so I can resoundingly say this is not true! At least not in Texas!
