It comes with loads of pickles, lettuce, tomato and onion. Be sure to order the house fries as a side. They are hand cut. Ask for them extra crispy. This sandwich is so big that it makes for two meals. Your total tab with iced tea will be less than $9!


From Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary:


Main Entry: ten·der·loin
Pronunciation: 'ten-d&r-"loin
Function: noun
1 : a strip of tender meat consisting of a large internal muscle of the loin on each side of the vertebral column


I saw nothing at Nicks Kitchen to lead me to believe it was anythng but this. So what is your discription of a "true pork tenderloin"? I have been buying pork loins for years and cutting, breading and frying my own, am I not getting what I thought I was?

If I am correct (??), the "tenderloin" is indeed part of the "loin" cut, but a pork "loin" is not the same cut as a "tenderloin".

Well, maybe and maybe not. Had you watched the Food Finds show featuring the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Brickyard Crossing Restaurant you would have seen a true pork tenderloin being prepared. Most restaurants in Indiana will serve a true pork tenderloin just because of the pressure of competition. Brickyard Crossing is in about 5th place right now in my taste sampling of Indiana restaurants.

True, the pork loin is a tad different and I went to the trouble to prepare both pork tenderloin and pork loin sandwiches myself last month and discerned not all that lot of difference.

If you ever get to Huntington, Indiana, look for Nicks Kitchen right downtown, you will be glad you did!

Butch,

And to think that I grew up in Wabash, just 19 miles from Huntington, and never made the pilgrimage to BPT Mecca!

Tom,

I think breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches are more popular now in Indiana than in our youth. I mostly remember driving clear across Indianapolis from the west side to the east side to Al Green's Restaurant just to get their huge, and I mean huge, sandwich. Now my little hometown of Speedway (pop. 12,000) has six restaurants that I have identified that serve them. I just don't remember that many other than the Mug'n'Bun, another legendary place, and I didn't think Mug'n'Bun held a candle to Al Green's back then.

I have been to Al Green's many times! Remember they used to show movies! You go and order food at the walk up window and take it back to your car and watch the movie! They did have a BIG tenderloin along with other LARGE sandwiches!

Have any of you ate at the Irish Point in Pendleton? It must have closed in the 70's but they were famous locally at least for their giant breaded tenderloin!

Can't recall the Irish Point in Pendleton. I've been away from Indiana except for visits for 36 years now.

My favorite luncheon pub in downtown Minneapolis, Lyon's Pub on 6th Street between Hennepin Avenue and Nicollet Mall is revising their menu for the first time in 6 years. I was told by Steve the bartender today that deep fried breaded pork tenderloins were going to be permanently added to the menu. Hopefully soon. Currently they are only an occassional special. I've been lobbying them hard about this for almost a year. Maybe I contributed to the decision. At least I like to think I did.

Dave,

That may well be. With the exception of a few visits, I've been away from Wabash for 53 years. While I was living there, there were at least three sources for the BPT; Jenny Dye's Bar and Grill, The Market St. Grill and Cavin's Drive-In where I worked during summer vacation while still in school. Those BPTs were entirely acceptable and there was no real reason to traipse off to a neighboring town in order to sample their cuisine. Nick's Kitchen would have been just another small-town cafe that happened to serve BPTs.

Tom, in Boise

Ooooh, don't let Jean Anne read this.

But then Dan Quayle stopped by...and that small-town cafe got its historic due in the pork tenderloin sandwich. Maybe more so now on the Internet.

Since my mother was from Ft. Wayne, we probably made that round trip between Indianapolis and Ft. Wayne going through Huntington several times every year when I was a kid to visit our grandmother. Little did we know the Holy Grail of pork tenderloin sandwiches was within our grasp.

Hopefully this June I will make it through Huntington on my annual Indy road trip.

If you traveled to Indy via. Huntington, you probably went through Wabash, as well.

Probably nothing. They name all their hamburgers after downtown buildings so I would guess it was someone's imagination to dress up the menu. That is the current menu for Lyon's Pub. I have not seen the new menu yet with the alleged breaded pork tenderloin.

I very much like the look of tenderloin #6, so much so that I may just have to stalk one myself

I will be trying that Joensy's tenderloin come this May on my way to the Indy 500. It should be about a midday snack. It will be a little less direct but not that much.

It looks to have a bit more heft to it than something I myself would describe as a snack, hehe -- but hey, more power to you if you can slam that down like I might a white castle single :-)

OK, OK, I'll try to time it so it is lunch time.

One tenderloin does tend to kill your appetite for the rest of the day. Since they are about 800 calories maybe if you just ate one a day to kill the appetite and nothing else thereafter, it could be considered diet food?

Davyyd,
Is that 800 calories including bun?

Figure you multiply 10 X's your weight to find out how many calories you need to maintain your weight. So, if you weigh 200 lbs., you need 2000 calories per day to stay even.

Therefore, have one for lunch, one for dinner, and a 400 calorie piece of German Chocolate cake as a snack in the evening, or for breakfast.

But, if you weigh 200 and want to be 180, you'll have to cut back on the cake. It's not quite Jared's diet, but technically, it'd work.

To be more precise, Culver's breaded pork tenderloin sandwich is 703 calories.

So I guess you can have your cake and eat it too.

Indeed. Is Culver's bigger or smaller than the portion at Papa Nick's? Just put a spa next door and we'll draw 'em like gangbusters from both coasts.

Jokes aside, I've often thought that a judiciously chosen, well-constructed diet of pleasing Roadfood could be the trick to reducing.

Culver's is average size for a pork tenderloin sandwich. It has a larger than normal bun but it is not beaten down thin to fill a dinner plate. I would judge it to be about right for the calorie count for the average. I doubt anyone is going to go to the trouble to hire a lab to verify calories for a single restaurant proprietor like they did Culvers. Just to refresh that image. One more look...

This pork tenderloin sandwich may be a tad more than 703 calories. It is from the Ox Yoke Inn, Independence, MN, a bar and grill west of Minneapolis where exurbs meet farmland and just adjacent to the Luce Line bicycle trail. This sandwich is two breaded pork tenderloins held together with melted Swiss cheese. We were there on a Saturday and the place was full at 6:30 PM. Still in Hennepin County but practically on the border with Wright County, they are under the smoking ban but it doesn't seem to be hurting business because there now seems to be more families with children in the establishment. Good bar food will triumph.

I'm heading out on a road trip from Minnesota to Massachusetts which means I will be traveling through northern Indiana. I may just find an opportunity to sample a pork tenderloin sandwich going or coming back. Going will be via the toll road. Anything close?

Steve the Bartender from Lyon's Pub in downtown Minneapolis called me this morning and said the chef agreed to make a maximum of 6 breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches as a private special for me and anyone else I brought along. This is the pub I have been lobbying to include them permanently and they may do so when they bring out their new menu. Besides what they have on their printed menu, they have a special or two every day but this special was private and reserved for me. Everyone else probably got some kind of grilled chicken. We never asked. :)

I rounded up five others from my office and we headed down there for lunch. The tenderloin was of good size and came with a twist--melted cheddar cheese and barbeque sauce. It was a good eat and I introduced five more to this delicacy and may have converted them.



A total of 22 breaded pork tenderloins are now on my photo web site that I have personally sampled.

We are on the road right now. No pork tenderloin sandwiches in Worcester, MA that I know of but had a great fried Bay scallop sandwich.

We did stop at a motel in Fremont, IN during as snow storm and ordered out for delivery from a restaurant 7 miles away in Angola. The breaded pork tenderloin turned out to be a big pork fritter from what I can tell. For $3.79 with fries I guess that is what should have been expected. I may post it anyway. Fremont and Angola are in the very upper northeast corner of Indiana bordering with Michigan and Ohio. Maybe they aren't true Hoosier up there.

Fremont and Angola are a big tourist area, could that be part of it also?

Pokagon State Park, Lake James and a Big Discount outlet mall all are located in this ara.
