Killer Tenderloin on the Travel Channel

The Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern, host of Bizarre Foods, highlighted our Killer Breaded Tenderloin Sandwich on the Iowa edition of Bizarre Foods – America. The episode aired February 25th, 2013. We were a little confused when he chose to try a Killer Tenderloin. But, he said that in many countries a breaded tenderloin sandwich would be bizarre.

B&B makes killer sandwiches!

Eat, Play, Love Des Moines is a local blog that provides reviews for some of the best places to eat, play, and enjoy in Des Moines!  They recently wrote a blog post titled “B&B makes killer sandwiches!”   The writer must be originally from the New England area since there are mentions of different restaurants in that area.   New England is also in our favorite line in the post:

This is the first place in Iowa that gave me that warm fuzzy feeling that only a real new england-style, grease laden, calorie-dense sub can do.

Joe talking Beef Prices on KCCI

Eric Hanson, from KCCI 8 News, interviewed Joe concerning the rising beef prices.   The beef market has been affected by the recent drought that produced smaller crops.  Smaller crops produce less cattle feed and/or more expensive cattle feed.  Therefore, farmers have less cattle.

Disc Golf Week 85

Mike Page and John both shot a 63 to come out on top for week 85. Well, kind of, Disc Golf Pro Mike Williams came by and showed off his throwing skills by shooting a 51.

Quadzilla in Juice Magazine

Juice Magazine and the Des Moines Register warned their readers about the Quadzilla! They even created a video on “Building Quadzilla! The quadruple decker cheeseburger”

A burger is just a burger, but the Quadzilla is four 1/3-pound burgers stacked ridiculously high.  This is more than a pound of beef, topped with ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles and served on a grilled bun.  Don’t try to eat it while driving.
