{Texas Tuesday - Perini Ranch in Abilene, TX}

A few weekends ago when we went to Welcome Trent home from deployment we had lunch at Perini Ranch the next day. Goodness, I can't even begin to describe how amazing it was!! 

Most of us opted for the buffet while a couple others ordered off the menu! We waited for our table out in the back, so we got a good view of the buffet. The buffet? Amazing!! They serve chuck wagon style food. It's to die for. Seriously!

 Everything was served from cast iron skillets and the gentlemen working the buffet were the kindest! They helped us Mamas that had a kid in tote without even hesitating! I had ham, chicken fried steak, green beans, mashed potatos, a corn relish {that was out of this world} and homemade bread. We also got a dessert with our meal...strawberry shortcake! YUM! I wish I would have taken pictures of the food, but I didn't waste any time devouring my plate!

The restaurant is very cabin/lodgy feeling. They had a fire place going when we got there. It's so cozy!

If you're ever in the Abilene/Buffalo Gap area, it's a must! Even worth a road trip!

  1. I am so jealous! To this day I still dream about the hamburger I had last time I was there!!! If it was that good I can only imagine how good the buffet is! So for today, I will just live vicariously through you(again)!

  2. My mouth literally started watering at the mention of chicken fried steak. Sounds so good!

  3. Mmm! Looks like the food is good and a great atmosphere to eat in.

  4. What?? I've never heard of this place! I'm going to make my parents go next time we're in Abilene!

  5. That looks just like a similar place I've visited (I think in McKinney...not sure, but my sister-in-law took us there a while back). Not the same place, but the same feel. If the food was as good you had a treat.

  6. I've been wanting to go here - a friend of mine is friends with the Perini Family. I do believe Mr. Perini is in your "buffet line" photo in the back!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
