Jim,

Thanks for the tip. They call it the Golden Garter I see on their menu. Clementine's is reachable. I love Bell's too. The Two Hearted Ale is one of my favorites.

Davy,

Clementine's has a fried perch sandwich, too. Probably the second best in South Haven.

Just curious, are you familiar with this boat? It belongs to one of my virtual friends and is based on Lake Minnetonka.

Jeff,

Minnetonka is a big lake that stretches across 12 miles. The eastern tip of the lake is about 10 miles from downtown Minneapolis. I live about in the center but since the lake is a connection of many bays my drive is meandering 21 miles to downtown. I don't live on the lake shore but am in a spit of land that has lake both west and east and I keep a pontoon boat at the city docks a block away. I think about 14 small communities dot the lake. It is still kind of a resort feeling in a metro area and we are blessed with two pork tenderloin sandwich serving restaurants close by.

I couldn't begin to guess how many boats are on the lake other than to say it can be a zoo on the weekends. We have huge party boats that ply the lake down to personal water craft. Sail boats abound mostly on the lower lake end near Wayzata and Deephaven. Bass boats are everywhere darting across the lake with 200 hp looking for the perfect fish hole. There are quite a few wooden boats like your friend's on the lake. Every summer there is a classic wooden boat show in Excelsior.

They are probably doing a reduction, some traditional reductions can take three days.

Found another Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich today at a place called Grain Belt Grill House in downtown Gilbert, AZ.

http://www.grainbeltgrillhouse.com/

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.

DD

Dog, Nice looking sandwich. I see they opened in January. Trying to appeal to the snowbirds and transplants from the heartland I imagine.

Do they also serve Grainbelt beer? Grainbelt beer was an old time Minneapolis brand and just about the only beer you could get in the rural farm country of southern Minnesota. It had a loyal following. The Grainbelt Brewery on the Mississippi River in Northeast Minneapolis closed down years ago, stood empty and was finally remodeled into off space by and for RSP Architects. The brand name is now owned by August Schell Brewery in New Ulm, MN and is still marketed now as a more upscale brew.

I wondered that myself. It was not on tap and I meant to ask if they had it in bottle, but my attention was diverted to the sandwich and conversation and it slipped my mind.

I'll be going back soon to try a couple other things that caught my eye on the menu, so I'll check then.

Today I walked over to Peter's Grill in downtown Minneapolis for lunch. To my surprise the special was the breaded pork tenderloin sandwich with lettuce and pickle, cabbage salad and French fries for $6.95. I did not have my camera with me so no picture. I asked the owner, Peter Atsidakos, if they were on the permanent menu since I had not seen them before. He said they were special once or twice a week. It will be my luck I'll go back several times and miss them on the days they are not a special.

I'm back! My god people let's get off this Philly Cheesesteak, Miricle [sic] whip, fish sandwich craze. Pork tenderloin sandwiches are back baby! And in a big way. For starters we stopped at the Rockwell Inn Restaurant on Highway 6 about 3 miles west of Highway 47 in Morris, IL. Great sandwich. Very interesting place with the original bar from the 1893 Chicago Columbian Exposition World's Fair made for the Anheuser Busch exhibit. Also, the theme and restaurant name owes to Norman Rockwell, the painter. They have a gift shop with Rockwell prints.

Th very next day we stopped at Nick's Kitchen in Huntington, IN to confirm after two excellent tenderloins in a row from the Townhouse Supper Club in Wellsburg, IA and the Rockwell Inn that indeed Nick's does have the best. We caught up with three others on their way to the RV.net 4th Annual B Camper Van Rally in Glendale Springs, NC at the Raccoon Holler Campground. Here is the consensus order of five great breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches.

Hey! I'm not finished. We are now in Burke, Virginia. Tonight we found yet another place in Corkie's Grille, McLean, Virginia. Corkie's is a neighborhood restaurant in a small strip center in old McLean on Old Dominion Dr. The owner, Rohit Kapoor, bought this established restaurant 8 months ago and wanted to infuse more neighborhood style. On a trip west and a stop in St. Louis, he discovered this Heartland favorite and added it to his menu. Not bad at all for the greater Washington DC area. It is probably the only breaded pork tenderloin sandwich served in greater DC.

After a roundabout trip to North Carolina and Washington DC we are in Indianapolis for the Indy 500 race. Our first stop was the Bourbon Street Distillery downtown at Vermont Street and Indiana Avenue.



Great place. Great Atmosphere as you can detect from the double deck outdoor seating on a grand evening. The breaded pork tenderloin sandwich ballyhooed by many as the best was just not there. Everything was right about it in condiments, bun, price, size, tenderness, etc. but it was just too greasy. So greasy that it left an unpleasant after taste. Maybe it was a bad night for them. Had it been fried right it could have perhaps had a better rating but it was no where near the last three I had at the Townhouse Supper Club, Rockwell Inn and Nick's Kitchen. Here is the sandwich...



My complete review is here...

Here is a throw in for the record. We stopped at a Frisch's Big Boy for lunch in Xenia, Ohio and I had this for $3.35.

Now here is a myth buster. The Mug n' Bun in Speedway, IN is a fritter as well.Note the perfect roundness of the sandwich. So people can stop talking about what used to be.

Shipping tenderloins is a new venture for Caroline's Mighty Fine Food. They will.

My last pork tenderloin on my 2007 tour was at the Indy Grill behind the Northwest Vista stands at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I bought one before the race started because last year they were sold out mid way and I missed out. They are pre-prepared, wrapped in foil and placed in a heated box. The only condiments are on a table you have to put on yourself limited to ketchup, mustard, chopped onions and pickle relish.

Just before the green flag dropped for the start of the race.


The Track Loin as we call them. Indy Grill calls them the Super Tenderloin

This settles it. I absolutely have to order from Caroline's or try to make one myself. Any pointers on condiments and seasoning? I lean toward mustard and LTOP, but less might be more.

Man was it worth it, ...

My wife and I were headed towards Milwaukee on I-65 after a visit with relatives in Cincinnati and stopped at The Trail Tree restaurant just outside of Rensselaer Indiana. I spotted the Indiana pork tenderloin and ordered the 10 oz jumbo which ran $5.99. It was very good, but as you can see unlike those I've had in Iowa, this came dressed with lettuce and tomato along with the standard onions and pickles. My jumbo's bun was a tad dry but the meat was not. My wife's regular version's bun was not.

The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives burgers episode had a pork tenderloin sandwich at the very end. It was served at the XXX Drive-In in West Lafayette. It wasn't breaded and fried, they cooked it on a griddle, but they were with you in spirit.

OK, Rensselaer to West Lafayette. Oh where to stop? The Food Network Channel's Diners, Drive-ins & Dives tonight featured the Triple XXX in West Lafayette. The show featured hamburgers but closed with the Triple XXX pork tenderloin sandwich. They hand flattened it with a maple mallet, dipped it in flour and grilled it instead of deep frying. Anyone had one? No reference to deep frying. I know a lot of restaurants give you the choice.

The Town House Supper Club in Wellsburg, Iowa just passed 10,000 tenderloins sold since Oct. 18 , 2006. That is over 1250 per month, and it isn't even open every day of the week.

This week we tried another local place in Minnetonka, MN called Snuffy's Malt Shop. http://www.snuffysmaltshop.com/

It is a small local chain with four restaurants in Highland Park (St. Paul), Roseville, Edina and Minnetonka. It's main attractions are burgers and malts. The tenderloin along with a Philly style steak sandwich were specials that may end soon. The tenderloin is not a made on premise one. It was a food service supplied frozen one that I'm sure is of the fast food variety comparable to the Frisch's Big Boy one I posted recently. The malts however were great and served the old fashioned way. The onion rings were good. The patrons were mostly families with very young kids or people born before 1950 it seemed. There were no in betweens while we were there. The theme of the place is 50's nostalgia. Stay tuned. Next week I will show you real 50's nostalgia.

For lunch today we took a short trip on the light rail from downtown Minneapolis to none other than the appropriately named Rail Station Bar & Grill in South Minneapolis to sample their tenderloin. They make a true tenderloin with a spicy breading. Very good and worth the trip.

Last night I re-visited the Minnetonka Drive In on Shoreline Drive along Lake Minnetonka. It is not too far from my home. The Back to the 50's classic auto get together is this weekend at the Minnesota State Fair grounds in St. Paul, MN. Over 11,000 classic cars will swamp the fair grounds. So, I thought it might be a perfect time to visit hearing that local classic car owners rally at the Minnetonka Drive In on Thursday nights.





I have more at my http://www.porktenderloinsandwich.com website blog but now I must prepare for a trip to the north woods near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. I will miss the Back to the 50's show this year but I am well fortified with an excellent tenderloin.
