The Very Remote Steakhouse Texans Will Travel Hours To Visit
Perini Ranch Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap, a small town in West Texas, is an off-the-beaten-path gem of a restaurant run by Tom and Lisa Perini in a barn on their land.
With over a decade of experience cooking out of a chuckwagon for cattle ranchers, Perini opened a restaurant in the barn on his land and has refined his recipes over the years.
Diners feast upon prime rib, tenderloin filets, and ribeyes cooked over a mesquite fire. The burgers have also garnered attention and have been referred to as “edible art.”
Side dishes include green chile hominy topped with bacon and cheese, zucchini slathered in Italian meat sauce, and Parmesan with potatoes, asparagus, and green beans.
Despite the ability to expand and franchise, the husband-wife duo that runs Perini Ranch Steakhouse remains committed to delivering quality from the comfort of their ranch.
