Iowa’s Best Breaded Tenderloin for 2011

Since 2003, the Iowa Pork Producers AssociationBuck's Bar and Grill has named a Best Breaded Tenderloin in the state. (Except for in 2004 when they named the best grilled version.) I’ve devoured six of the award-winners, indulging in the current winner just last month at Buck’s Bar and Grill in Mitchellville.

Truthfully, I’m really not much of a tenderloin fan. It’s not something I typically order while dining out, but for some reason I’m drawn to trying the award winners.

I arrived at Buck’s about 1 p.m. and hungry. Which was a good thing because the tenderloins are huge. I’m talking spilling way out of the bun huge. Did I mention it’s also served with fries? It took me a while, but I did manage to eat the whole tenderloin. And I have to say, it was quite delicious!
