The Iowa Pork Producers Association (IPPA) has selected a Webster City restaurant as the winner of its 2017 Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin contest. The Grid Iron Grill owned by Burke Risetter was judged to have the best tenderloin in the state this year. “You’ve put a lot of pride on my sleeve,” Risetter said when contacted by IPPA earlier this week. “This is awesome. I can’t stop smiling.” Risetter will receive a check for $500, a plaque and a large banner to display.
IPPA judges selected the Northside Cafe in Winterset as the runner-up in this year’s contest. IPPA will present the cafe with a check for $250 and a plaque. The Buffalo Tavern in Burlington, Lake View’s Thirsty Carp and the Double Dip in Chariton rounded out the top five finalists. These restaurants will receive a Top Five Plaque to display in their restaurant.
