It’s Foodie Friday

It’s Foodie Friday for us at the Visitor’s Center.

Every week it’s a highly talked about subject… What’s for LUNCH on Friday!

Most of the time we struggle as to where we are going to go & what sounds good. We have so many options here in town that the struggle is R-E-A-L.

Today we decided on the famous Pork Tenderloin Sandwich! I ordered from 2 places, the Blue Gate Restaurant and the Trading Place Auction Restaurant. When I ordered both sandwiches I asked for extra pickles, lettuce & tomato. I also requested onion rings, because if your going to eat a Delicious pork tenderloin sandwich you HAVE to have Onion Rings!

The Blue Gate Restaurant’s sandwich is HUGE, this pork tenderloin came on a hoagie style bun. It was so large we ended up splitting it 4 ways (leftovers=Bonus)! The Blue Gate had the pickles, lettuce & tomato on the side, because they put coleslaw & onions on their version. It was tasty. The pork tenderloin was hefty in the pork part and the coleslaw added a nice crunch to it.

 

The Trading Place Auction Restaurant came how I ordered it, extra pickles, lettuce & tomato! IT TOO was HUGE & deeeellllicious! Their version was a bit thinner, I would call more “traditional” to the area and on a nice warm hamburger style bun. Again, large enough we split this one 4 ways as well.

After devouring both sandwiches, it was hard to say which one was better, you know, to really pick a “winner.” I feel they both had excellent qualities to them. The Blue Gate with a thicker pork portion & the Trading Place with their crispiness!

Oh, those onion rings, both were on point! You simply can’t go wrong with crispy fried Onion Rings!

Check out our leftovers!! Needless to say we were stuffed – & needed a nap… but Back to Work we go!

I recommend either place for a delicious Pork Tenderloin sandwich! Not that I am some food expert, however I do enjoy delicious eats! Hmmmm…. Which makes me think, I wonder where we will eat next Friday!!!??
