Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich in Los Angeles?

Anyone know where I can find a good one of these? I would eat one of these when I lived back in Indiana and they were so good!

    1. I love breaded-pork-tenderloin sandwiches, too, and hope this thread finds something thoroughly Midwestern, preferably at a place that serves Jello for dessert and where you feel like helping the waitress clear away your dishes, Hon'.

      Otherwise, you might think about trying Jägerhaus, where you can get decent German dishes, including a boneless breaded pork chop that could be turned into a (closed- or open-face w/gravy) sandwich quite easily. Board-favorite Pann's has excellent (when they're not overcooked) breaded pork chops, bone-in, that are convertible to sandwich duty with the aid of a sharp knife.

      See attached photo for the real thing in Indianapolis.

      1. I don't know how good, but I've seen it at Callahan's.

          Could you be a bit more helpful, counselor? Especially as there is a Callahan's in Santa Monica and another in Azusa....

            Sorry. The one in Santa Monica on Wilshire.

        2. The have an excellent "Indiana style" sandwich at Hash House A GoGo in San Diego, and have never been, but also at a place called the Chuck Wagon in Corona.

            I've gone past Hash House A GoGo many times but had no idea it was that kind of restaurant. I see they serve the breaded tenderloin in various ways, including a sandwich. From the menu:

            "Big O'crispy hand hammered pork tenderloin sandwich

            "With onion, pickles & of course ketchup on a whole wheat bun served with your choice of side. You'll think you're back in Indiana!"

            See for details. I will stop by Hash House A GoGo next time I'm in the vicinity -- thanks, BubblyOne.

              My pleasure! Martha Stewart did a segment on HHAGG a few years ago (the one in LV) and I liked it enough to try this location. Great breakfasts too.
