Texas Hill Country Done Right.
Love Wil Jenny's! This homage to Texas Hill Country cuisine always serves reliably great food. Cousins in Luling and Lockhart won't recognize the elephant ear fans, but the Elgin sausage will take 'em straight home. The Ranch House beans may be the only *pinto* beans served in a bbq joint north of the Red River (and they're cooked in beer, to boot!). And as a man who has eaten well more than his share of chicken fried steaks, I haven't had finer fare since the Prufrock chain from Dallas shuttered-up. For non-Texicans, the menu features plenty of light and airy fare for with a Tex-West flare - there's something pleasing for everybody.The restaurant is clean, the decor is just Texan enough without thinking you're at Roadhouse, and the wait staff is quite possibly the finest in greater Kansas City. Ownership (not management - ownership) is hands on, remembers your face if not your name, and is always, always working the room. Whether local or just passing through, there is absolutely no reason you shouldn't visit Wil Jenny's - soon and often.
