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 [...]

Blueberry Muffin To Top it Off

Steak’s “Stamp of Approval”

steak

When you order up a steak at Perko’s, you know you’re going to get something delicious. But did you also know that while you’re enjoying your meal, you’re also helping local farmers? Not only succulent, juicy, and cooked to perfection, our steaks are from right here in the Central Valley and are USDA graded.

So just what does this mean to you? When you see the USDA shield, you know you are getting only the highest-quality, American-raised beef that meets all safety measures. And that USDA “rank” or “grade” helps farmers in rural areas, like those here in the central valley. Having the USDA stamp of approval gives our farmers access to better business transactions, and our farmers can benefit from the availability of these standards. They’re able to better market their beef to stores and restaurants within the state of California—and all over the great US of A. These standards take their beef from “no name” to a “brand name” in just one stamp.

So when you order that succulent steak—medium, rare, well-done—or however you like it—you’re not just helping yourself to an amazing meal. You’re helping our farmers run their businesses, too.

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!
