The Gnaw Bone Tenderloin when it was at the Food & Fuel had changed ownership numerous times and similar to the Mug’n’Bun carried a storied reputation. Maybe at one time it was a great sandwich. But the tenderloin I had last June at the Food and Fuel did not crack my 10 best. It was OK but the reason for the destination was more for the unique atmosphere of eating at a gas station with an unusual name. Now that it relegated to a bar in a private golf course clubhouse I would not go out of my way. Sorry, that’s the way it is in my opinion.
Most likely on my 2007 tenderloin sandwich tour I will take in the Green Street Pub in Brownsburg, the Bourbon Street Distillery in downtown Indianapolis and maybe the Flag Room at the Brickyard Crossing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. By default I will have my annual high school reunion pork tenderloin sandwich at Grindstone Charley’s in Speedway the Friday night before the Indy 500.
As a prelude to the tour I hope to get down to Wellsburg, Iowa and try the 2006 best pork tenderloin sandwich in Iowa winner awarded by the Iowa Pork Board. That would be a 231 mile 4 hour 43 minute trip from my house according to Google Maps. [:D] But the camper van needs a warm up trip.
