I love a good tenderloin, so I heard about this place and wanted to give it a try. Certainly nothing fancy, place your order at the window and wait until it is ready and then take home or eat in your car. The menu options are really good, but I stuck with the tenderloin which did not disappoint. It was... More

Ordered a pork loin sandwich. It's walk-up service only. Once we ordered it took about 10 minutes for our sandwiches. I ordered my sandwich with mayo only. The sandwiches come with lettuce, onion and mayo. The pork loin over lapped the bun by a good 3 inches. Meat was hot and tender. Seating for eating outside or in your car.... More

Small, walk up counter. The pork tenderloin is a hit. The size and price to match. One can easily share one of the sandwiches. They have thick and rich shakes and malts. It does live up to it's name "tender" loin. There is picnic benches which is not so good in winter.

Known as one of the best tenderloins in Kansas City, I finally had a chance to check them out. If a fried, breaded sandwich can be considered as tasting "fresh", this would be it. It actually tasted more like a breaded pork chop than most tenderloins you get. A very good sandwich and DOES meet the claim of ONE of... More

We stop in here about once a month. I always get the Tenderloin it is delicious. Their fries, onion rings, and fried mushrooms are also good. My son has gotten hamburgers and chicken sandwiches and he has never complained. They also have good fountain pop, and shakes. It is just a tiny place where you pick up your food. We... More

Double battered, super crunchy and now that we've moved to another state, we miss it. It may not look like much from the outside but the pork ts are pretty darned tasty. I'd comment on the other menu items, but I never got anything else. Didn't need to!

This place is great but only walk-in service. We avoided lines by stopping by at 3:00 pm, but they were still busy. It's got the best pork tenderloin sandwich I've had in a long time and we all loved them. Wish we had time and room for ice cream but the sandwich is huge for only $5+ some cents. Will... More
