Where to find a Midwest Pork Tenderloin Sandwich - Phx Metro
My SO and I were heading to Midwestern Meats in Mesa today to stock our cooler full of Carniverous Goodies for our upcoming Labor Day BBQ.
We decided to grab a bite to eat in Midwestern's Restaurant....I went for the Traditional Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich (7.99) w/ a side of Slaw and a side of mashed w/ gravy.....
The Pork Tenderloin had to be the juciest, most flavorful sandwich I have had in a long time....
My SO had the BBQ Pork Sandwich, he raved about how tender and moist the pork was....
Not being a huge Pork fan....I have developed a new craving for Pork Tenderoin Sandwiches.....
Any other recommendations in the Greater Phoenix area for this Midwest specialty?

I can't vouch for the authenticity or quality of these sandwiches, but in poking around with Google, I found this out:
the Iowa Cafe in Mesa offers the breaded tenderloin (possibly in sandwich form)
I also found a mention of a place in Tucson serving this sandwich:
Wags Family Restaurant
4026 E Grant Rd, Tucson, AZ 85712
5606 E McKellips Rd Ste 105, Mesa, AZ 85215
Had lunch @ the Grainbelt Grill House today w/ a friend. I had the ritz chicken...it was great. It was coated in ritz crackers and probably deep fried. It was juicy tender and wonderful topped w/ a homemade country gravy and silky mashed potatoes. I had the lunch size portion and it more than enough to satisfy. My dining partner had the 'Maid -Rite' Sloppy Joe...he raved about it! Said it was just like he remembered from Iowa.
Service was attentive, lunch prices are moderate and the atmosphere is refreshing for not being a chain restaurant in the East Valley
There's a pretty good tenderloin sandwich at Duke's on McDowell Rd in Scottsdale, and on Mondays it's $2 (2.75 with fries) Also a Monday burger special -- same price and good.
