What makes “fresh” so much better

What makes “fresh” so much better

Freshness is something that seems to be interpreted in many different ways these days. In some cases, it simply means that meat was never frozen. In other cases, people are aiming for their style to be so fresh and so clean (clean). With fruits and vegetables, freshness can be confusing to define and even harder [...]

So sweet you’ll think it’s already dessert

CrepesPancakes, waffles, and French toast can be found pretty much anywhere. And really, why not? All of them are excellent choices to start your day, and they can adequately accompany just about anything at the breakfast table.

But while those three hog the spotlight, there’s a fourth option that is far too often overlooked. We’re talking, of course, about splatter cakes!

You may know them in many places as crepes, but our version of them are called splatter cakes, and the way we whip them up should make your mouth water just hearing about it. With a cream cheese filling stuffing the inside and fresh fruit topping it all off, the sweetness of the flavor will have you feeling like you skipped straight to dessert! Read More »

Take on these double stackers if you dare

BBQ BurgerWhen it comes to a beef patty, a 1/3 pound burger is quite the hefty centerpiece to build around when making a good burger.

When it comes to really pushing your taste buds to new heights, why just stop with a single 1/3 pound patty? At Perko’s, we like to push things further by adding another patty into that mix to make up one of our trio of Double Stackers! These three burgers are all on their own level of “beastly” with a double-threat of patties, nearing an entire pound in weight.

While burgers of this size could hardly be called “traditional”, that’s what you can mostly expect out of the BBQ Cheeseburger or the Nacho Burger. Both are massive creations loaded with a handful of toppings to give it a unique flavor all of its own. But if you want to go really crazy with things, give a try to our Double “Grilled Cheese” Burger.

All of them are going to be delicious and filling, if not even a tiny bit exotic for a burger. So come on in and let your taste buds have their world rocked by one of these mammoth creations!

Balance your meal with a soup or salad

SaladFor the bulk of most people’s lives, we’ve heard endlessly about eating balanced meals. And to have stood such a test of time, there’s definitely something to it all.

When it comes to healthy servings of the meat and potatoes variety like you’ll get with a lot of dishes at Perko’s, often times you’ll also have the option to add a soup or salad for only about $2 more.

For the sake of a well-balanced meal, we say take that option when it’s there! Why not round things out with some greens, other vegetables, or a warm soup to get your meal started off? That kind of balance is something that the food pyramid we’re all so familiar with would definitely approve of, so why leave any part of the pyramid excluded from your meal?

The smell of churros and cotton candy fresh from the carts? And what about the cinnamon rolls? The sweet, buttery bread, rolled up with cinnamon and sugar, then frosted with a sweet glaze and almost certainly taking home the blue ribbon prize. Read More »
