All were listed on the menu as County Fried steak with the exception of Café South which listed it as Country STYLE Steak. Every place I've been to in the Mid South and South East serves something similar as "Country Fried Steak" which seems to correspond with the Link that chickenplucker provided, as well as the topic which I linked from an old thread.
 
*Edit* : In all fairness I've never had country fried or chicken fried steak in Arkansas since I'm usually hunting down good  Arkansas sytle BBQ, Catfish and Chicken n Dumplings however since Arkansas so close to Texas and Oklahoma it wouldnt' surprise me at all that style you're familiar with dominates.

I think they look like baked steak. Maybe even Swiss steak (except for the apparent lack of tomatoes). I know I've never seen country fried steak that looks like those.

I admit Mr Hoffman, I was thinking the same thing..a few looking like Salisbury Steak. I just am used to the crunchy w/ cream/pepper gravy.

Just saying this is what's served to me everytime country fried steak is on the menu in the mid south and south east. Based on the link that chickenplucker provided differentiating Chicken fried v Country fried, this makes sense . MH is right about Baked steak which I've had in The Charleston WV it's almost the same to me- Salsbury steak on the other hand is totally different.

Mamaw Smith made something very similar to the pics and hers was  country fried steak.  She utilized tenderized steak. covered it in flour and browned it and then she put it in a pan with onions and gravy and spices and put it in the oven and  covered and cooked it low and slow for a couple of hours.  The appearance was very similar to the other pics.

Paul, that steak sounds delicious!  I'll bet it was fork-tender when it came out of the oven.

As you can see it's very similar to the country fried steak depicted in the other photos

My understanding of Chicken VS. Country fried coincides with this article.
