I’ve talked about Butch’s River Rock Cafe’ before, but I was home, in Iowa, for a few days introducing my new grandson to the family, and of course we had to make a trip down to Butch’s for one of his famous, scrumptious, out-of-this-world, pork tenderloin.
I gave up the bun a long time ago and just go with the dinner-plate sized breaded behemoth called, “hog snouts,” on the menu. They’re cooked the same, but sliced in strips which I dip in their special sauce, ketchup, or whichever I’m in the mood for at the moment.
Butch’s is down on the Skunk River. It used to be a bait shop where you could buy a pop and candy bar. There’s also a Dam there…thus the reason for many of the menu titles.
Butch turned it into a real “must stop-in” place when I’m back, or for anyone looking for a great meal at a decent price. It’s small but if you lucky enough to find a seat, it’s great! And if that isn’t enough to get you there, the State of Iowa declared his tenderloin the “best” last year!
There’s everything on the menu from, Dam good fries, salmon garden salad, prime rib, and a breakfast with cured bacon and eggs that will make you weak in the knees.
And they’re all, “Damn good!”
Here’s a few shots of our orders and the place I love so much.
Eat your heart out, readers…
