I love this segment because it gives me the excuse to eat at least one tenderloin each month. Great success! I am a big music fan and a bad ass musician in my spare time. Recently, I went to go see the extremely awesome Blues/Soul guitarist/vocalist Tab Benoit. The show was outstanding and I would highly recommended it to yall! Back to the food.
What I Ate: Breaded Tenderloin; $7.00. Served with chips and a pickle.
My first thought was, “wow, this is kind of small for an Indiana tenderloin.” It looks big in the picture, but the plate was pretty small. The produce was really good. Lettuce, onions, ripe tomatoes and thick-cut crunchy pickles, so it was a nice effort. The bun was nicely toasted as well. So far so good.
The tenderloin was pretty tasty too. It was pounded a little, but left pretty thick. I would say that it was the thickness of a normal chicken sandwich. It was juicy and the seasoning had a little bit of salt in it as well. I didn’t find any gristle and found it to be of decent quality considering this is bar food.
Would I Buy It Again? I am torn here. It wasn’t a bad tenderloin, but there was nothing going on here that I can’t get anywhere else. Plus, it was pretty small when comparing it to other tenderloins in town. It reminded me of a tenderloin that they would serve to an uptown girl that wanted to stick her toe in pool of the common people’s food without jumping off the deep end.
If I am eating a tenderloin, I barely want to see the plate. I want it about as big as a small pizza. I want it to stare me in the face and say, “bring it champ, you can’t finish me.”
In sports terms, I was Nolan Ryan and this tenderloin was Robin Ventura. No match.
