Frank's Texas BBQ

Nestled on Taoyuan County, as everyone knows Frank's Texas BBQ holds a charming cowboy atmosphere. As you're driving along the road of Dasi Township, you could easily pass it by. The rustic wood structure with triangle roof-top on one end is where the indoor dining area is located, and serves a set meal authentic American Tex Mex cuisine.
After we went to Taoyuan Hsien Kou for tulip flower festival. My family and I happened to arrive in past 1:00 PM it was crowd and we waited for a few minutes to be seated. As you enter Frank's Texas Grill you'll notice right away that this place is too crowded and tight with young people. Right after the entrance, is the counter with American flag and wagon wheel chandeliers on display that has transformed into a peice of ranch style Texas. They also have a sound system and play American or classic country music which adds to the atmosphere.
We ordered their set meal combo serve with bread, salad with drinks of your choice: Claire had the 8.oz fillet mignon loaded with baked chili bean in tangy sauce, fries, mashed potato, coleslaw, corn and compliments with cheese cake for the dessert. The fillet mignon was a perfect medium rare. It tasted great and a nice texture to it.
My husband choose the 10.oz red wine pepper steak consisting beef with red wine cream sauce, serve with baked chili beans, coleslaw, mashed potato and corn. The beef had an awesome and impressive flavor, and proved to be incredibly tender and juicy. The creamy sauce, blended from meat juices was exquisite and was a fantastic tender meat. He also loved the fresh of their slaw! Since his not a big fun and not that impressive of American dinning. I was suprised when he told me that we will be back next time and we will try their other dishes.
Charles choose the wrangler rib eye 10.oz special with baked chili bean, coleslaw, mashed potato and corn. Like the other steak it was delicious!
And I had the grilled lake trout with Mexican rice. I really loved my fish, it was very fresh and cooked to perfection.
The Mexican rice, baked chili bean, and hot salsa sauce a great side dish for my grilled fish was a pretty health sized plate.
We ordered fish and chips loaded with fries for all of us to share. It was huge when it came, we expect it just a little. Below on the menu is on the level of snack age. This fish and chips can be consider as a main course also.
The fish and chips plate featured 3 fresh fillets I guess it was a cod that were flakey and perfectly fried. The battered not too heavy it was light and crispy and delightfully golden. And I loved the tartar sauce, based on mayo and chopped pickle relish. I'm just thinking there's a lot of oil or cholesterol to kick in.
And we were serve with this very simple fresh salad before our main course.
The meal came with complementary fresh bread. They were warm soft middle with butter filling, crispy crusty outside.
For my dessert, I choose the A&W root beer float in a nice big frosty mug with creamy vanilla ice cream on the side of root beer.
We also shared the hot apple pie with vanilla ice cream. It featured huge chunks of apple was good but comparing to the apple strudel it wasn't impressive to our linking.
The plain cheese cake is fluffy when you stick your fork. It just melts in a sweet cloud of goodness not too sweet, just right!
All in all, just the right environment for great barbeque and definitely worth stopping for. The service was fast, the meal was very good, the dessert probably wasn’t needed.
