CLOSED DUE TO FIRE - January 16th, 2009
We keep this page up to remember a historic Hot Springs establishment.
300 Coy St, Hot Springs, Arkansas
Coy's burned the morning of January 16th, 2009 just a day before the opening of the racing season at Oaklawn Park. Many visitors to Hot Springs were disappointed as Coy's had been a regular stop on every trip.
Coy's Steak House was a fixture in Hot Springs, Arkansas for aged steaks since opening back in 1945. Locals especially miss Coy's salad dressing. Below is a recipe for Coy's House Salad Dressing. We're not sure how close it is to the real thing but it is really good. It's the best salad dressing we've had in Hot Springs.
Coy's House Salad Dressing - Hot Springs Tips Version
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 teaspoons paprika
1 1/8 teaspoons ground white pepper
2-3 cloves of minced garlic
2 cups mayonnaise
2 cups Miracle Whip dressing
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
6 ounces (1/2 can) evaporated milk
4 Tablespoons of Accent seasoning (MSG)
Combine the salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, Accent and sugar well. Add to a blender with remaining ingredients and process until mixed and smooth. Some people think of MSG as something bad. It is a great flavoring agent for those not allergic to it. Just like peanuts, don't eat them if you are allergic. Makes around 1 quart. Serve with salad and crackers just like Coy's did it!
