Westside Family Restaurant in Grinnell Iowa
Location: 229 6th Ave West in Grinnell Iowa about an hour east of Des Moines.
Directions: This is on old Highway 6 on the western side of Grinnell.
Online at: Website is HERE.
The tenderloin: The cut was a little on the thin side but the meat was moist throughout. The breading had a light crunchiness and not much taste but had a good golden brown color. Served on a soft bun with your choice of fixings overall 7.5 out of ten.
Price: $6.95 a la carte
Also on the menu: full breakfast in the morning, homemade pies and a huge lunch and dinner selection like steaks or burgers or seafood.
Service: Its table service by some long serving waitresses.
Final Thoughts: My attempts at finding a good tenderloin in Grinnell had been mostly frustration, I think I had one at a pizza place a long time ago, and I had tried Montgomery's Sandwich Shop but they didn't have a homemade loin. I may have to try the racing themed bar down the road in Newton on Highway 6 for my next stop.
