In Texas, the state of cowboys and cattle, you expect real American chuck-wagon food. And at the Perini Ranch Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap, you get it. The Perini family has been serving up delicious cowboy cuisine since 1983, but they made national headlines in 1995 with their Ranch Mesquite Smoked Peppered Beef Tenderloin (the New York Times named it the mail-order gift of the year). Called the true taste of Texas, the signature beef tenderloin is shipped fully cooked to every corner of the country. We prefer to enjoy ours in person at the Perini Ranch’s barn-themed steakhouse.
