From Fat to Fad


You’ve seen the commercials. You’ve heard the testimonials. You’ve probably even tried them for yourself: avocadoes. It’s true that years ago, the avocado was considered a “fatty” food, and it certainly wasn’t promoted for its health benefits. Today, health-conscious restaurants promote the fruit, health professionals advise you partake, and individuals dedicated to “clean” eating can’t get enough.

So, what brought about the recent shift of avocados from fat to fad? The following are just some of the reasons: Read More »


Breakfast Favorite

Two eggs cookingThere are a lot of great options for breakfast. Some of the great ones are big, fancy plates that take a fair amount of time and ingredients to prepare. But great things can also be had from simplicity.

That’s exactly what you get with our two egg breakfast at Perko’s. It might not sound like a whole lot, and some mornings, that’s exactly what your appetite is craving.

Eggs are the perfect start to any breakfast, and based on the name of this dish, you obviously can expect two of them cooked the way you want them. Those eggs come served with potatoes and your choice of pancakes, toast, or a fresh blueberry muffin. If you’ve ever heard that great things come in small packages, here’s your proof.

Order a glass of orange juice to go with it, and you’ll have yourself an all-around basic, but still excellent breakfast!


Classics Join Forces

grilled cheese

We love classic dishes here at Perko’s, especially when we can add a little twist.  As a kid we all loved a delicious grilled cheese sandwich. That crispy delicious crust that was cooked to that perfect golden brown and a center filled with delicious melted cheese.  We love everything about the classic grilled cheese, it wouldn’t be a classic dish if it weren’t great.  We wanted to try and make a classic dish even better and we found a way to do it. Combine it with another classic!

Our classic tag team is the grilled cheese and bacon burger.  We take 2 grilled cheese sandwiches, jack and cheddar, layered with a 1/3 lb ground beef patty, bacon, lettuce tomato and onion slap put them all together and have created a masterpiece.  So come in and enjoy two classic dishes teaming up to make your taste buds happier than they’ve ever been.


Breakfast Steak

steakPicture a tender, juicy, perfectly-cooked steak. Pair that with your favorite side dish. It makes for a picture-perfect dinner, right? Think again. While a steak dinner may be a succulent splurge at suppertime, what about steak for breakfast?

 Cold cereal, hot oatmeal, or a slice of toast may sound like a traditional breakfast, but most of those meals lack any protein. Protein can help fuel your body, and help keep you fuller—longer—so instead of needing a mid-morning snack, you’ll be satiated until lunch. It’s the reason so many people opt for breakfast choices like eggs or Greek yogurt.

 So, now, go ahead, and picture that steak again. Only picture it for breakfast. Paired with three eggs, hash browns, and a traditional biscuits and gravy, our New York Steak and Eggs will not only leave you satiated, but coming back for more.

Whether you’re going with the Turkey Melt, our Turkey Burger, or the Ultimate Dip with turkey, you are going to get a whole ton of great flavor tickling your taste buds. You’re also going to get the health benefits that come along with that great taste which you can expect with any entrée that features turkey as a part of it.

Reasons To Love Pancakes


Pancakes are one of those rare food items that have somewhat of a mystique about them. When it comes to breakfast foods, they’re almost always the first things that comes to mind. And on top of that, they’re essentially exclusive to only breakfast. How many other entrees can claim that?

It’s undeniable that a nice stack of flapjacks can make any breakfast better. And at Perko’s, you can get those and plenty more. Whether it’s just a side of pancakes next to some hash browns and bacon, or a full stack topped with whipped cream and fruit, you just can’t go wrong.
