Last Saturday, when Teresa and I were out harvesting town signs, I was hoping to finally hit the first destination on The Tenderloin Trail 2.0. Wood Iron Grille is one of the stops. So I planned for us to eat lunch there, when we hit the Oskaloosa area. Unfortunately, and this is on me, they don’t open until 4 PM on Saturdays.
Instead we dined at a quaint little downtown restaurant called Tasos Steakhouse. While I didn’t get to hit the Tenderloin Trail, your humble narrator did do some tenderloining.
Here are some cruddy cell phone pictures:
You’ve seen the pictures now, but how do I break down the experience? Well it goes a little something like this:
+ Good bun.
+ Toasted bun.
+ The fried cheese curds were exquisite.
+ Service was friendly.
+ Got food recommendations from some locals.
+ Didn’t nail the meat to bun ratio, but pretty close.
+ Served Pepsi products.
+ Standard has lettuce and tomatoes.
+ Red onions. I mean not the end of the world, but definitely not my tenderloin onion of choice.
+ A little on the bland side.
+ Too thin, not quite, but dangerously close the pork fritter territory.
+ Fries were a disappointment.
I don’t have any tenderloins currently planned, but I’m sure it is only a matter of time before the universe puts one in my path again.
This is your reminder that this week’s THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme is BLUE:
BLUE! What a great theme for Year 8 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!
But what is BLUE photo? A BLUE photo is simply a picture where the color BLUE is a major compositional element of your image.
Happy photo harvesting!
