Are you looking for the perfect spot to celebrate a special occasion, host a private event, or just enjoy a beautiful evening out? Foodies, we’d like to introduce you to Queenie’s Steakhouse located just off of The Square in Denton, Texas.
This restaurant was created by celebrity chef, Tim Love, and it certainly has ‘love’ written all over it. Every dish on the menu is injected with love and care. And the service you’ll experience from the General Manager down to the hosting staff is world-class.
One of the dishes they’re the most well-known for is their Chicken Fried Quail. It is the perfect combination of delicate and fried and comes served with Chili Buttermilk and their house-made pickles.
We’d also recommend you try their Elk and Foie Gras Sliders. This foie gras is like nothing you’ve ever had before. It melts in your mouth and combined with the blueberry jam, it’s a smash hit. (We’d also recommend you add one of those house-made pickles to the slider.)
When it comes to the main course, you can’t go wrong with either the Crispy Colorado Trout which is lightly fried and served with a fresh, ponzu microgreen salad and a delicious yuzu aioli on the side; or the New York Strip which comes topped with a serrano-lime butter and pairs perfectly with their Glazed Brussels Sprouts.
And for dessert – even if it’s just a regular Wednesday night – we’d absolutely suggest you never leave Queenie’s without ordering their signature Ancho Chili Chocolate Cake. This is the dessert Chef Tim Love actually beat Iron Chef Morimoto with and once you’ve tasted it, it’s easy to see how! It is creamy and rich and full of chocolate flavor. And the ancho chili offers the slightest bit of heat which compliments the chocolate and other flavors so well.
Queenie’s also has an incredible bar with a wide assortment of wines, liqueurs, cocktails, and more. General Manager, Ken Bivens, recommends you check out their newest cocktail – The Love Potion – which incorporates citrus vodka, cherry juice, Prosecco, and edible rose petals.
Queenie’s has been one of our Denton favorites for years and we’re so excited to finally share its story with all of you! We hope you’ll make plans to visit Denton soon to check out all they have to offer.
