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 [...]

Eggs Taste Good and They’re Good For You


Eggs are one of those things that can go with just about anything. Whether it’s as part of a delicious breakfast, added into a salad, or fried and put on top of a burger, they’re always going to bring something to the table.

But flavor isn’t the only thing that eggs offer. There’s a whole lot of health to be had from these little white wonders as well. The protein and vitamins provided by eggs are well-known, but there are plenty of other health benefits that they bring which you might not have known about. So to help in sharing some of those benefits, below is an excerpt from a piece done some years back by healthdiaries.com of 10 health benefits you can get out of eggs!

Better Burgers


When that burger craving hits, don’t settle for a drive-thru or fast food joint, where sub-par beef patties are slapped on a small bun and your food is handed to you in a piece of paper.

Instead, bring that beef craving to Perko’s, where our quarter-pound burger is served with quality condiments on a premium bun, with a side of our famous seasoned fries.

Our Haystack burger boasts not one—but TWO–third-pound patties, basted with tangy steak sauce and stacked with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onion tanglers & roasted garlic aioli. If that’s not enough to get your mouth watering, what about a taste of our Ortega burger topped with Otega chili, grilled onions, Santa Fe sauce and pepper jack cheese—all served up on grilled sourdough.

So, when you’re in a mood for a burger, get a burger. Come on in and actually curb that burger craving with one of our burgers. At Perko’s, we put great food on the map!

The Thai Chicken Salad is no light load

Crispy Thai Chicken resizeAt some point over the years it seems that a perception has grown that ordering a salad automatically means you’re eating light. We’re not sure where that started how people bought into that theory, yet it persists.

When you look past that false perception of things, you can see a whole lot of tremendous potential that salads can bring as an entrée. And we think one fantastic example of this is our Crispy Thai Chicken Salad at Perko’s.

We start off with the essentials of fresh greens, tossed with some cabbage. Then we add in mushrooms, carrots, peanuts, raisins, and chow mein noodles. The salad really gets its bulk when we top the creation with some crispy chicken and a Thai peanut dressing added over it all.

It might not be your mammoth serving of meat and potatoes that is often associated with a big meal, but it also won’t be any kind of light meal either. And if you’re trying to stick to a more strict diet, you still can take home the piece of mind that you ordered the salad, even if that mentality falls into that negative stereotype toward salads that we mentioned before. Just think of yourself as getting the best of both worlds.
