If you are trying to find that last piece of americana then look to Turner Kansas .... just off I-70 in Turner ks across from the old high school sets a little tasty queen that serves up the good stuff .... known for their tenderloin it has everything you want or need to eat .... crushed ice, real ice cream and a tenderloin bigger then your head ..... it's well worth the drive from anywhere ..... call ahead because on saturday taco day it gets crowed around lunch time ... I always call ahead to beat the masses ..... good price hot and tasty food with all the malts and shakes you can drink .... there is no indoor seating but just outside under the tree is a picnic table ....

I was really in the mood for a Pork Tenderloin sandwich and researched on Google for the sandwich in the Kansas City area. One of the first results that popped up was Christy's Tasty Queen. A small drive from the area near I-29 and I-635 in Platte County netted a 2 lane road through a residential neighborhood and across the street from a middle school pops up this hole in the wall!

No frills interior, just your ordinary '70's era hamburger stand with no seats inside to enjoy your meal. However, there are seats outside to enjoy your meal with any of Kansas City's famed elements of nature. The pork tenderloin was a hare above $5.00 which is a small price to pay for the generous sandwich that is bestowed. The tenderloin sandwich is juicy, the breading is crunchy, and the size is what an Iowan (is that even a word?) expects of their sandwich.

There is a wealth of other menu items to try, including tacos, hamburgers (they are a hamburger stand), other fried foods, along with ice cream!

Come with a $10 bill, get yourself a sandwich, a side, and a drink! Be prepared to find somewhere to eat if you don't want to get your car dirty and the outside climate is a little on the nippy side. Highly recommended!

Don't get to stop by too often, but when I do they never disappoint. Great burgers, great pork tenderloins and great shakes. Best little *hole in the wall* in the metro area.
