Jethro's BBQ and Pork Chop Grill
I had wanted to try Jethro's BBQ and Porck Chop Grill on my last trip to Iowa.
I made it happen this time.
Check that menu.
I was staring in wild wonder and my waitress, Sara, asked me why I was grinning like an idiot. I told her all about my Uncle Jim who was a true pork chop king.
I explained that we had banter about pork chops that went round and round.
I ordered the double cut stuffed chop and the gravy that it was served with made me laugh...it was way too good.
Sara stopped by the table to see how I was doing.
I was nearly done with the chop.
I explained how wonderful it was and we started discussing the fact that I was there in honor of Uncle Jim and perhaps I should have another...
...one for him and one for me.
"Do it!" I said.
Sara was back a little while later.
I finished both chops.
Make the trip!
