Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich

Does anyone know of an eatery in the triad area, or beyond, that serves these wonderful sandwiches..I used to get them in Indiana

  1. Flo's Kitchen in Wilson has a pork *chop* sandwich. Might be close to what you're looking for. Bit of a haul from the Triad, though.

    2. Snappy Lunch in Mt. Airy is also famous for it's pork chop sandwich...not sure it's exactly like what you're looking for though

      1. I butterfly a pork tenderloin, hammer out with a tenderizer, dip in an egg wash, cover with Progresso bread crumbs and fry in about 1/2 inch of hot canola oil till done. It's as good as any pork tenderloin you'll get in Indiana or Solon, Iowa - you bet. Serve with spatzel and mushroom gravy and you got a pork jaeger snitzel.

          What's the name of your restaurant and where in the Triad is it located?

        2. I haven't found one yet in NC, but as Johnny West describes below, it is pretty easy to make at home. That's how I satisfy the craving. Though I usually use a boneless chop or sirloin because it's slightly cheaper.

          1. Blue Note Grill in Durham ( has a pork chop sandwich that is a bread and fried boneless pork chop that might fit the bill. I love it--I think it is even better than the one at Snappy Lunch.

              Just ran across this and had to resurrect it. I can't believe no one has mentioned the pork tenderloin at Country BBQ. It has been part of their legendary tenderloin biscuit for 25 years, (Wendover location literally has lines out the front door most mornings) and in the last couple of years they have started offering it as sandwich on a bun for the afternoon and evening customers. I don't know how they do it, but the tenderloin is so tender you can cut if with a fork, just melts in your mouth, and the breading lightly seasoned with just a hint of garlic. It was always my customary "bribe" to get my production crew to work on Saturdays, if I told them, I would treat them to breakfast from Country BBQ, they would all jump for it. 2 locations in Greensboro, one on W. Wendover across from Costco, one on 68 about a mile S of I-40. Unfortunately the original location in High Point has been closed. Several other BBQ places have tried to copy this (Henry James, Carter Bros) but no one comes close on this item.
