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 [...]

Don’t Skip Lunch

stomach

Lunch is a very important meal and one that we don’t take lightly at Perko’s.  Check out some of the benefits of eating a healthy lunch.

In addition to the immediate relief of a growling stomach, lunch contributes to a solid foundation of good nutrition on a continuing basis. A healthy lunch should provide a student with enough calories to keep her going throughout the day no matter what her activity level. The calories should come from nutritious foods that are low-calorie and low-fat. Read More »

A Dessert Perfect to Split

banana split

After a traditional, filling meal, you’ll hopefully be feeling satisfied. But even with that substantial satisfaction, a little sweetness goes a long way.

That’s why, here at Perko’s we have a variety of desserts to choose from. One of our hometown favorites is our Banana Split. This traditional dessert is generously portioned, easy enough to share with two or three friends. Succulent scoops of vanilla bean, strawberry, and chocolate ice cream sit atop a bed of sliced bananas. Then, they are topped with strawberry, chocolate, and warm caramel sauce, to add depth to the sundae. Finally, as custom with a banana split, a generous dollop of whipped cream is topped with a cherry and chopped nuts.

So, if you need a little something for your sweet tooth, or you’re looking for a dessert to  share with your family or friends, we think our Banana Split is just what you’re looking for!

Farm-Fresh Eggs: By the Numbers

eggs

Eggs are one of the easiest ways to get essential vitamins, nutrients, and protein into a healthy diet. Anyone trying to live a healthy lifestyle should certainly consider adding eggs for one—or all—of their meals. In fact, body builders and endurance athletes alike utilize eggs for a great source of protein and excellent muscle recovery.

So just what are these important vitamins and nutrients that eggs contain?

-Vitamin A, an essential vitamin for night vision, and healthy skin and bones

-B Vitamins, which help convert food into energy

-Vitamin E that can prevent cell damage and, in turn, prevent cancer

-Folate, an essential nutrient in preventing birth defects

-Lutein, which protects your eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration 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!

Come on in and enjoy one of our desserts at Perko’s to give your Monday something sweet to round it all out.
