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!


Bell Pepper Boost

Bell PeppersThere are a handful of things you can find on our menu at Perko’s that feature bell peppers. From our skillets to our omelets, with a few other excellent dishes in between, bell peppers are going to be in play with a lot of what you order. And why not? With the flavor they unleash into a meal when cooked in with it, who wouldn’t want these to be a part of their meal?

In case you needed a little more motivation to get these into your meal, bell peppers are also very rich in what they bring to the table health-wise. Some of the finer points about what you’ll get from them might be lesser-known to many, and to help you know more about the health that accompanies the great taste of bell peppers.


Turkey Time

TurkeyTurkey is one of those things that is deeply associated with a particular time of the year. But for every other month outside of November, don’t go forgetting about turkey. It has a ton to offer both in great flavor and tremendous health benefits.

At Perko’s, you can get your turkey fix in a whole bunch of ways.

Blueberry Muffin To Top it Off

Blueberry Muffin

There are a lot of great smells out there that can make a person weak in the knees when that odor enters their nostrils. A sizzling steak, fresh-baked cookies, bacon; all fantastic smells that will get any person jumping out of bed in the morning.

One could argue that no smell in the world tops that of a blueberry muffin. It’s a unique, intoxicating scent that would scream the word “breakfast” if it could be vocalized. So it only makes sense to have that arrive on your table when you’re sitting down for a nice 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.

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 »
