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 [...]

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.


Hot Skillet for Breakfast


Some people prefer to have their breakfast all wrapped up in a nice little package.

Sometimes that package comes as simple as a hot iron skillet, loaded with a hearty mixture of meat, vegetables, eggs, cheeses, and more. At Perko’s, we’ve got a few choices of breakfast skillets that will get your day off to as hot of a start as the dish your breakfast arrived in. Read More »


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.


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!


Country Fair Cinnamon Rolls


Do you remember that first trip you took to the fair, or maybe a carnival? Do you remember all the sights and the smells? The ferris wheel that seemed to go round and round forever? 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 »


The Mother Lode

Mother Lode

Three eggs is a great place to start off any breakfast. When you wrap up some more great ingredients into those eggs, you’ve got yourself one heck of an omelet.

Now picture that omelet loaded with an onslaught of flavor, including some of the tastiest and healthiest foods out there, and you’ve got the Mother Lode! Headlining the flavor is bacon, a favorite among so many people out there. Along with it, we add in mushrooms, tomato, and avocado to round out the health and flavor of it all. Read More »


What Turkey IS


When you hear the word “turkey,” what comes to mind? Maybe it’s Thanksgiving? Maybe it’s a deli sandwich? Perhaps it’s the name you called your little brother while you were growing up? Well, there are certainly a lot of things the word turkey can be, but we’re going to tell you what it is not.

If you’ve ever been on a low-fat, high-protein, or no carb diet, turkey may have been included as a part of your meals or snack choices. Turkey is definitely not high in carbohydrates or fat. Turkey is not a poor choice when you’re trying to eat healthy.

In fact, turkey is high-protein, low-fat, and filled with potassium, iron, zinc and B vitamins. A serving size is 3 and a half ounces, or the size of your fist, or a deck of cards. While dark meat and turkey skin are certainly not the most healthy part of turkey, the white mean is lean, is low in fat, and has just 120 calories per serving.

At Perko’s Farm Fresh, we offer a number of menu items that include this health-conscious fare. For lunch, and around just 600 calories, try our Hot Turkey Sandwich, served with mashed potatoes and gravy. So come on in and enjoy a Thanksgiving-like feast, without all the fat.
