The Belmond Drive-In has a tenderloin on the sign, and its 2016 IPPA Best Tenderloin in Iowa Contest plaque on the wall. Then they have a sign reading Best Tenderloin in a window, and then the shirts they wear say "Hand Breaded Tenderloins" and "Full of Awesome".
Location: 215 River Ave S in Belmond, Wright County, Northern Iowa.
Directions: you take Highway 69 North from Des Moines past Webster City and this place is on the south side of town.
Price: $5.88 after tax
Also on the menu: The menu has the basics of burgers, a melt sandwich, and hot beef with ice cream shop items for dessert.
Service: There was one person working tables and one person cooking when I was in.
Final Thoughts: This tenderloin is a case of good things sometimes coming in small packages. This is my first stop in Wright County, and I hope to get back in this area when the weather warms up and more places are open.
