Three C’s Diner in Corning is an unassuming place. Parked along Highway 148 as it rolls through town, the small brick building with the welcoming patio offers only a hint of what lies within.

The restaurant’s food creations are outstanding. So outstanding that the Iowa Pork Producers Association named the Three C’s Diner, owned by Steve and Missy Sanson, winner of this year’s Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Contest in all of Iowa.

“We’re thrilled to have this honor,” says Missy. The Sansons also welcome the business rush that comes with it. Steve has gone from ordering two cases of pork loin per week to 14, and that is barely enough.
