Found another Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich today at a place called Grain Belt Grill House in downtown Gilbert, AZ.
The place recently opened and touts fresh, midwestern cooking in an upscale atmosphere. I figured they must have a BPTS and the street tent confirmed my suspicions...
I sat down at the bar and took a look at the menu, even though I knew what I was going there for. The lady next to me happened to be the owner's mother, so I got plenty of info about the restaurant and the owners themselves of course.
I ordered the Tenderloin Sandwich and shortly thereeafter this beauty arrived.
Now, I can't imagine going into a restaurant in Indiana or Iowa and recieving such a "fancy" sandwich, this had Hash House a-Go-Go written all over it, just not as big.
The taste was excellent, the meat being very juicy and the exterior with just a bit of crunch. The good sized portion was served with lettuce, tomato, pickle wedge and something called BBQ mayo, which actually worked pretty well on the sandwich.
In the meantime, the guy next to me ordered the Rueben, and I must say I was a bit food jealous, as it looked pretty darn good as well.
Overall, it is worth a visit, the $10.95 price tag on the sandwich was a bit hard to swallow, but it was indeed a quality sandwich, so no huge complaints there.
I hope they do well, that location has had three other restaurants in it before this one, but if the food will decide how well it does they should do OK.
