RE: Pork Tenderloins
Sat, 10/26/13 2:08 PM
I have had tenderloins like that in Peoria, one place is called the Tenderloin Shack and I can't think of the name of the other one but it is in the downtown area near the Civic Center complex. The Culvers chain has a decent tenderloin. They are a small regional chain from Wisconsin that is now in the far west 'burbs of Chicago. You can also get great fried chees curds there!
Please, this is a "foodies" site. Don't recommend Culver's! Their pork tenderloins are a mere shadow of the ones available in Iowa!
There are some places in northern Indiana that you could try if that's closer.
The Culver's tenderloin is a true cut of pork meat and is a lot better than many of the processed pork fritters that can be found in many Iowa, Indiana and Illinois independent but cheap restaurants. Granted, Culver's is a chain and doesn't fit the definition of roadfood, but I see no need to deride them. If one thing, Culver's has become the ambassador spreading the idea of the breaded pork tenderloin sandwich beyond the Midwest borders and they have pretty much done it right.
I agree with DavyDD: Culvers has stepped out of the traditional chain and has created burgers, fish and BPT beyound expectations. That chain is the best of chains and I have never had a bad experience upon my visits with them. I wish we had them in Tennessee.

I just stopped at one in Franklin (near Nashville) last month. Would be quite a drive for you.
