Restaurants in Iowa

Pork is king in Iowa, where an “Iowa Pork Chop” isn’t just a chop from local hogs. It is two or three times thicker than a pork chop from anywhere else, and its creamy goodness is beyond compare. Likewise, cinnamon rolls, available in virtually every restaurant, are immense. Iowa also is a nexus of the lower Midwest’s beloved tenderloin sandwich, and it is the custom in here to flatten a slab of tenderloin so it fries up three or four or five times wider than the bun that sandwiches it. Pies are blue-ribbon quality, too — fruit pies as well as that dairy country favorite, sour cream raisin pie – a delirious balancing act of sweet and tangy.
