When I get to Las Vegas I will probably drop $23.95 for a breaded pork tenderloin sandwich at Hash House A Go-Go, but I will probably suggest to my wife she try a salad instead of faithfully giving me second opinions on tenderloins.

    Just got back from LA, there wasn't a Pork Tenderloin Sandwich to be found anywhere. I did manage to get by Philippe's for an excellent French Dipped beef sandwich (Quite tasty) as well as a little place in Pasadena called...the Rose Bowl?

        I would think the result would be rather dry.

          realtreebar.........That's how the American Legion in Bloomington,
          across and down from Met Stadium (now the Mall Of America) fixed
          their Pork Tenders.
          They were great!

            Probably not pounding it out first, otherwise that sucker would be drier than a Steven Wright one-liner.

              They were great!

              Curiosity is getting to me. Why would you cook the tenderloin before deep frying it? What is the principle involved and how is it cooked beforehand?

              Guess I am going to have to check out some American Legion posts. There is one just down the road from me.

                  I was able to get my hands on two Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches this week, one at a place I had been before, Casey Jones grill, and the other at a place just down the street from my workplace called "The Other Q."

                  Casey Jones, I am happy to report is consistant with the Pork Tenderloin, that is, it was just as juicy and delicious as it was last time I was there. The hot wings are pretty tasty as well.



                  Unfortunately, "The Other Q" was not as impressive. I didn't have my camera with this day so I will be going back for a second chance. I did hear the waitress explaining where some things were to the cook, so in all fairness, this guy probably was not their normal cook. The Tenderloin actually would have been much better had it been plucked from it's hot oil bath about a minute sooner.

                  This restaurant has a lot going for it, with it's obvious midwestern, down home feel inside. lot's of wood, a pool table, nearly every species of animal that one is allowed to hunt hanging from the walls and friendly wait staff. Something very strange about the place though is that it doesn't have any windows. After spending 45 minutes in the place and then going back out into the mid day Arizona sun amounts to pure torture.



                  I went by later in the day to take an exterior shot, but I'll have to get back this coming week to give the place another try 'cause the sandwich had potential! By the way, I also do not know the story surrounding the odd name for the place, another reason to hit it again.
                  Hey Davydd, way to go getting the press coverage. I think it's high time we anoint you the Grand Poobah of the Loyal Order of Breaded Pork Tenderloin Affectionados!

                    Where are these places? I'd like to check them out. Maybe the "Q" stands for BBQ, or Pool Que, or I don't have a Q, or I'm Queless or-----

                      I will be traveling to the Dallas Fort Worth area next month so my interest is there considering I got deluged with email from Texas this week wanting to know where the pork tenderloin sandwiches were. It seems if desertdog can keep ferreting them out in Arizona there's got to be some in Texas as well. Any suggestions? I'm zeroing in on Grand Prairie smack between Dallas and Fort Worth. When I Google - Pork Tenderloin Sandwich Texas - I get lots of restaurants that also serve something on Texas toast and strangely got more hits in Kansas City than Texas anywhere.

                        Casey Jones Grill is up on Bell and 29th Street on the west end of a strip mall. Always a good atmosphere and good eats (and drinks!)

                        The Other Q is just south of Deer Valley Road on the west side of 19th Avenue. Kinda in what you would expect to be an industrial park. One of the Honeywell plants is right there across the street.

                        I am meeting my Mom tomorrow in Tucson for lunch, she wants to go to Wags...I am torn between the absolutely awsome Pork Tenderloin Sandwich (Porky) and the Maid Rite Sandwich (Turbo). The owner is from Indiana and I believe his wife is from Iowa. Can't go wrong with that combination, eh? (If you are familiar with Tucson, it is on the south side of Grant just east of Alvernon.)

                        Hey Davydd, I would search out areas in Texas known for big Snowbird populations, probably around New Braunfels-Austin-San Antonio areas. Anywhere that sees a big population increase in the winter time is bound to have the home-away-from-home midwestern comfort food restaurants.

                        Search out sports bars that have an affiliation to a midwestern sports team. I was driving by a place in Cave Creek (north end of Scottsdale) yesterday and remembered that it is a big Green Bay Packer bar. Got to be a Pork Tenderlion in there!

                        Good luck and enjoy your trip to Tejas! Austin is my favorite city in the state, just don't spend too much time on 6th street!

                          desertdog,

                          I know of one place in Mission, TX down along the border west of Brownsville but this trip coming up is the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I have another project in Deer Valley, AZ coming up. I'm a licensed architect in Texas and Arizona and 9 other states.

                          If it is a Green Bay Packer bar I doubt they will be sporting tenderloins. Wisconsin is brat country and that's what you will probably get. They might have a fried walleye sandwich.

                            I'm not so sure. Usually any place that supports a midwestern sports team (here anyway) tries to cater to the entire region. Well, I guess I'll find out later this week!

                            The Deer Valley area is really taking off, esp. around the airport(pun intended.) FYI, The Deer Valley Airport has a good restaurant that serves a great breakfast (and lunch for that matter.) My personal favorite is the Corned Beef Hash.

                            There is an unbealievable number of Industrial Condos going up around that area and the airport just completed building a new control tower. Access to two major freeways and fast growing residential to the north make it a hot spot for commercial building. Didn't you mention a while back that you did commercial architecture?

                              Time to have a little fun. Here is a pork tenderloin on a stick from the Spencer County Fair in Massachusetts. Photo courtesy of my son, Peter.

                                Not to be confused with the Clay County fair in Spencer, IA. Although there it probably would be a "Breaded" Pork Tenderloin on a stick, eh?

                                Made it down to Tucson today and headed over to Wags for another round of "Porky." "CLOSED ON MONDAYS" read the sign....Duhoooooo!

                                Sooo...I slid on over to El Charro for some Carne Seca Tacos, which made for a nice consolation prize.

                                What I wanted, but did not get [|)]

                                  Well Davydd......you were right. No Pork Tenderloins at the Packer bar. 0 for 2 this week. Starting to go through withdrawls. They did have Brats. And Walleye, but only on Fridays and on Sundays during Football season. (and perch as well as other fresh water fish)

                                  All was not lost, however. I did manage to score a mighty good catfish po-boy and an excellent Cave Creek Amber from the local brewery.

                                      We have a world class meat market, Midwestern Meats in Mesa, AZ. It's owned by a guy from Iowa. I bought some of his "cubed" pork tenders today and will make BPT's over the holidays. Anyone have any good suggestions for the breading
                                      I'm going to serve them with my fabulous home-made biscuits using Pioneer Biscuit mix from San Antonio, TX. The best biscuit mix I've ever found!

                                            I would love to receive that as a Christmas card. No one else would get it.

                                              AHHHH, NOTHING SAYS "CHRISTMAS" LIKE A NICE BREADED PORK TENDERLOIN SANDWICH!

                                              Finally got back to the "Other Q" restaurant in Phoenix. The Other Q is in reference to the original restaurant the owner had called Mrs. Q, which no longer exists here in PHX.

                                              The tenderloin sandwich itself was still not great, and nothing like the "Other Pork Tenderloin" I had yesterday!

                                              Still, I like the restaurant and will be going back to try other items, like the patty melt. Dayvdd, I am happy to report that they also have Walleye, and is supposed to be quite tasty!

                                                I will be making pork tenderloin sandwiches this coming Saturday. It will be my second annual holiday tenderloin since it will be on my birthday. The one pictured above was from last year. I went to our new local Lund's grocery and bought a tenderloin that weighed in at a whopping 2.45 lbs. I hadn't seen one in a local grocery before weighing much more than 1-1/2 lbs. Can't wait.

                                                    We ventured to downtown Minneapolis to have lunch at the Loon Cafe on 1st Avenue in what is known as the Warehouse District--old brick bearing wall storage buildings with heavy timber construction converted to office, loft living, shopping and restaurant use. The Loon Cafe was established in 1981 and was one of the first restaurants to gentrify the area consisting of those artist lofts, galleries and trendy eating establishments at the time before the construction of the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Target Center basketball arena. The area is changing. The artist gentrifiers got priced out and the area became less trendy. The Loon Cafe is one of the lone survivors of the 1980s Yuppie era. It has a fine bar and comfy feel. The food is more sports bar/grill than upscale dining. I have no complaints about that. That was my generation that ushered it in.

                                                    The Loon Cafe is best known for its many variety of chilies and is what first set it apart from the sports bar crowd nudging up to the Target Center, but we came for the breaded pork tenderloin sandwich. First off, the Loon Cafe’s breaded pork tenderloin sandwich is not your traditional Iowa/Indiana variety. It consist of two small pork loin cuts that were not hammered, but lightly breaded with flour, and fried. The sandwich was served on a toasted onion bun and garnished with shredded cabbage and sliced green onions. A side of Bar-B-Que sauce was provided and of course the customary pickle and fries. The taste was fine but the sandwich does not satisfy my pursuit for the traditional breaded pork tenderloin sandwich. I will go back to the Loon Cafe, but now freed from the pursuit, I think I will want to sample their chili the next time. They reputedly have the best award winning chili in the Twin Cities and five varieties to choose from.

                                                      This is the way to end the year with my 2006 Holiday Tenderloin. Actually I made nine tenderloin sandwiches tonight and they were the most satisfying to date. The meat was so tender it practically melted in your mouth. Enjoy!

                                                        All the best in the New Year !

                                                          Here is a complete description of how I made my 2006 Holiday breaded pork tenderloin sandwich. It's a blog.

                                                            Just a quick note. Unless I venture out local (Minnesota) this weekend my next pork tenderloin sandwich may be in Dallas, TX next week. I may have found an "upscale dive" that serves them.
