I have mad respect for our friend, The Tenderloin Connoisseur. One of his favorite tenderloins, if not his favorite, is the tenderloin at Jimmy B’s. So, I had to give it a try for the Tenderloin of the Month segment. Jimmy B’s is like every other somewhat dive-y strip mall bar. I stopped by at lunch and it was a little smoky, but it didn’t bother me after the first minute or two.
What I Ate: Breaded Pork Tenderloin with fries (add $1). Don’t quote me, but it was around $8.
It arrived and it surely looked good. The bun didn’t look as toasted as I like it, but the tenderloin itself looked great. Well, it didn’t disappoint. The thickness was perfect, the bread-to-meat ratio was perfect as well. The breading was not softer, not really crunchy or crispy. There was no gristle to be found. Plus, it was flippin huge! I skipped dinner that night.
My only complaint about the meat is that it could’ve used a little more seasoning (read: salt). The rest of the sandwich was nothing special, but the tenderloin itself was so good, that it didn’t need to be. Fries were straight out of the bag, so nothing to talk about there either. Service was friendly and attentive.
Would I Buy It Again? Yes, easily. One of the better tenderloins in the city. I would not pick a fight with anyone that told me that this is the best tenderloin that they have had. I liked it quite a bit and it is a very fine version of the official state sandwich of Indiana.
