I had a pork tenderloin sandwich once. Never had any reason to have another one.

    I know what you mean. I went to a Waffle House once. Never had any reason to go to another one.

        I was prompted by your post to look for any Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches in South Florida (Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties for you non-locals).  I found a blog mention of one up in Margate, about an hour north of me on a good day.  It doesn't look a lot like the beauties that you have posted.

          Stumbled upon Indy native Rick Garrett's blog today.  Excellent reviews.  Looks like there's still plenty of BPTs yet to try.

            Bailey's Pub.  Danville, Indiana. My second there.  This one was excellent, IMHO.  Only drawback was that the mayo was in a pre-packaged little pouch.  Tender, juicy, flavorful.  Draft Blue Moon was a nice accompaniment, and their fried dill pickle slices are the best I've ever had.  A nice prelude to the Hendricks County Symphony Orchestra concert in the park of Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

              Man v. Food has been hitting the tenderloins hard lately, with indianapolis and now the mysterious "Wop Chop" (onomatopoeia in the name possibly?). The segment left way too much mystery behind a sandwich in a place that only seemed to be famous because a celebrity liked to eat there. 

               
              The attendees at the Des Moines shoot had to sign non-disclosure forms like its some huge mystery whether the guy ate an entire sandwich of bbq items piled on top of a tenderloin cut in two. This tenderloin is at least eight ounces before cooking. Jethros expects business to triple once the episode airs.

                Hello All,
                When I was wild and younger, 26 yrs. old and going
                through my first divorce, I was part of a pack of similar
                souls, male and female, that drank til the bars closed.
                And then we went to this dive diner still open at
                2 a.m., to eat.  They made the best tenderloin sandwiches, served with fries.  They no longer exist,
                but ahhh, I miss the C&E Diner in Harrisonburg, VA.
                They had a rich, salty coating on the tenderloins that
                merged with the fries, taking one into a heaven of
                the tastebuds.  I miss this place.
                Take Care,
                Fieldthistle

                  Trzhotel, you just kind of jumped from the "Wop Chop" (apparently in Butte, MT) to Jethro's so I'm guessing you're referring to 3 different Man vs. Food episodes.
                   
                  More important, if you were handing out grades would you give the Jethro's episode a "D+"?

                      Also, that tenderloin alone is a huge freakin sandwich.  I know Adam eats some huge stuff, but eating that in 5 minutes, or something like that?  I know I couldn't do it.
                       
                      Nice Raygun(SMASH) t-shirt that Adam has on, as well.  Everyone I know that met the guy said he was a really cool dude.  Hope Jethro's goes kaaa-boom! from business.  Great place.

                        I can't complain about a lack of hype for BPT's on the web lately. The MSN homepage had a link to a list of sandwiches that included the mysterious "Iowa Skinny" last week.


                        This week there was a list of "Top Food Trucks" that linked to a Bon Appetit magazine article from a year ago. They have found a food truck in Portland serving a "schnitzelwich", described as:
                        "There may be no better sandwich on the planet..., a lightly breaded, pan-fried pork-loin cutlet that's amped up with homemade horseradish and a creamy paprika spread. The sandwich is finished with lettuce and caramelized onions, then tucked into a soft ciabatta roll."

                          They are out there. When outside the Midwest they invariably will go by a different name like schnitzelwich, schnitzel burger, pork burger, pork chop sandwich or its truer definition, pork loin not tenderloin. That makes it difficult if you Google just "pork tenderloin" as the Midwest knows them. Generally only in areas with a snowbird population like Arizona and Florida will you find reference to Iowa, Indiana or Midwest "pork tenderloin".
                           
                          Next spring I will be in Arizona, Illinois and Indiana for stays and will be passing through Iowa and Missouri. Lots of opportunities in those states.

                            The Schnitzelwich on ciabatta looks good to this as yet uninitiated Jersey boy.

                              I live in Huntington In. and have made a few Utube videos. Nothing special. I was thinking that I should make a Utube video doing a tenderloin comparison... I can think of 7+ bar/restaurants within this area that serve pork tenderloins.  I was thinking that I could con a fellow foodie to do it with me, so we could do 3 at a time, cut them in half,... judge the first three... Then do three more, judge them,... and I sure I could easily find three more. Then Do a final jugging from the winners.  Really just a reason to try a LOT of local tenderloins...

                                  The local business paper wrote up the impact of the Man v. Food filming:


                                  “We’ve been selling 50 to 60 of those Emmeneckers per day per store,” said Bruce Gerleman, owner of Jethro’s, which has one location at 3100 Forest Ave. and another at 2601 Adventureland Drive, Altoona. “It’s just mind-boggling how many people are eating them now. Typically before, we would sell two or three for a day.”

                                  Once there, Richman spent not only the 14 hours necessary to tape the 10-minute segment, but actually came back to eat a regular meal two more times, Gerleman said. The crew spent a full day at each location, shooting multiple takes. All told, the crew taped 35 to 40 hours of footage at the three restaurants to fill about 21 minutes of airtime.
                                  For Gerleman and Jethro’s, “Man v. Food” was the second big piece of free publicity that the restaurant has received since opening in 2008. In late 2008, CBS sent a notice to Jethro’s asking it to stop using depictions of characters from the 1960s TV show “The Beverly Hillbillies” to promote the restaurant, citing copyright infringement. Far from being worried or even annoyed, “for me it was fun,” Gerleman said. To settle the issue, he changed the cartoon Jethro’s shirt from plaid to dark red, and changed Jethro’s rope belt to suspenders.

                                    BPT Restaurant Review:
                                    The Iowa Cafe, Mesa, AZ.
                                    This place is Hawkeye Heaven aimed at the Iowa Expats and Snowbirds. Tons of Hawkeye stuff all over the place. It used to be pretty good---no more-. Don't know if it changed hands or what. Had breakfast there today. It was Busy. Only one waitress. Ordered the #1, "Dan Gable Special", 2 eggs, fried potatoes, a BPT, and a biscuit. The BPTwas small, thin and totally tasteless. The potatoes were a potato chip cut and deep fried with no flavor. The biscuit was a small frozen store bought thing. The eggs were ok. I'm officially taking them off my Recommended list.

                                      For those of you that have tried the Spic-n-Span at the Suzie-Q Cafe in Mason City, Iowa, if you talked to the owner, did he happen to say if it's the same as the pork tenderloins that were made at the Spic-n-Span that used to be in downtown Mason City?
                                       
                                      I had tenderloins from the Spic-n-Span in the 70s. If I remember right, the Spin-n-Span was an even smaller place than the Suzie-Q. And there was a little place named "Dad's" that sold hamburgers that was run by a couple of women. You could get mustard and onions on the burgers. No ketchup. And you could get potato chips and a soda.

                                        Gazmik, The Suzie-Q is the same original place in downtown Mason City and the same recipe. You can't get much smaller than its 8 stools at a counter.

                                          The Spic-n-Span was in an alley about half a block off of Federal Ave. There is a shopping mall (Southbridge?) where the Spic-n-Span was. If the Suzie-Q has the old Spic-n-Span recipe, I'm going to have to stop in and have some the next time I'm down there!

                                            I was at the Suzie-Q in December then again in February. The conversation moves fast and changes subjects frequently. The diner may be getting a neighborhood grant to restore it to its 1948 splendor, or it may be getting a city crew to move it on a flatbed truck to another parking lot when some road/sidewalk work is getting done. The guy in charge is a bit of a perfectionist, constantly tinkering with the menu, adding things then changing them. The was a big list of hand-pattied burgers when I was there in February, I got one with a grilled tenderloin and a burger on top:

                                              Gazmik, The Suzie-Q is the same original place in downtown Mason City and the same recipe. You can't get much smaller than its 8 stools at a counter. 

                                              The Spic-n-Span was in an alley about half a block off of Federal Ave. There is a shopping mall (Southbridge?) where the Spic-n-Span was. If the Suzie-Q has the old Spic-n-Span recipe, I'm going to have to stop in and have some the next time I'm down there!

                                              I didn't read anything in the historic literature they had that it was on a different site but it is the same building and presumably the same Spic-n-Span recipe since they advertise it as such through its various owners passing it down. TrzHotel just confirmed it is small enough to move and it appears it might happen again.

                                                I think my days of eating a burger-tenderloin like that are long over.
                                                 
                                                If I keep this up I have to start splitting those hubcap kind and sharing with my wife.

                                                    The Smith's Restaurant I am familair with is in Collins, MO. I reported on it here and incidentally the Suzie-Q in Mason City, IA in this same message thread. You'll also find a tenderloin from Prejean's in Lafayette, Louisiana.

                                                            I was travelling today from Plattsburg, MO to Knoxville, TN and on the way home came via I-70 across MO.  I stopped at MM 175 about an hour + west of St louis and asked the gas station attendant if they could recommend a restaurant that had good tenderloins nearby.  I was told Dad's Junction Cafe, just next to the McDonalds up the street.
                                                            This place is in a rather large brick building but outsid eof the "Cafe" sign you'd not notice it as a restaurant.  I went in, looked at the menu and they proclaimed "Biggest tenderloin on I-70".  I figured at least 8 other places probably made the same claim.
                                                            i got one for me and one for my wife.  I swear I have never seen a bigger tenderloin in my life.  Waitress had to close the t0-go box with a rubber band.  Breading was outstanding and the meat was sooo good.  Bun could have been fresher or toasted as I found the bun to be a distraction. 
                                                            I would not want to eat in the restaurant as they smoke inside, but the food was really good.  Anyone travelling I-70 through Missouri should stop at exit 175 and try this out.
