Ok, I have got to go and check out Ranchman’s Ponder Steakhouse sometime then.
I mean, if it’s frequented by Larry McMurtry – it’s at least worth a look!
For years I would always opt for a chicken-fried steak when at a steakhouse. But the older I get the more I appreciate a good classic steak.
Right now, a flat-iron steak is my standard order. Maybe a bake potato, salad, side of bread..
Alright, I’m about to make my self hungry.
I wonder if McMurtry ever made it to Mary’s Cafe?
There is a fine steakhouse called the Ranchman’s, in a tiny town called Ponder, Texas, near Denton and not far from Fort Worth. I have eaten at the Ranchman’s with some regularity for about fifty-five years. It was summer and I happened to be in the neighborhood, so I ate there again, emerging, well fed, at about dusk.
