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 [...]

Our Best Tuna Sandwich

Our Best Tuna Sandwich

We’ve got a few sandwiches on our menu that are so outstanding that they’ve earned the title of our Blue Ribbon Winners. One of those worthy of that designation is our Tuna Melt! At the heart of it all is our special recipe tuna, packed in with tomatoes and melted cheese, all brought together between [...]

Map your way to your nearest Perko’s location

If this blog ever gets your mouth watering in all kinds of ways, the last thing you’ll want to do is have to wait any longer than you have to before grabbing a table and satisfying those cravings. But what if you’ve recently moved to a new area? Or what if a new Perko’s has popped [...]

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 »


Nothing Beats Good BBQ


We love good BBQ, but then again who doesn’t love delicious ribs slathered in BBQ sauce?  The answer is everyone loves ribs slathered in BBQ sauce, but at most restaurants if you want BBQ ribs you’ll be lucky to get a small side to go along with your ribs.  When we get BBQ ribs it’s because we’re hungry and we want a big meal and that’s why when you order the Barnyard BBQ at Perko’s you don’t just get ribs.

The Barnyard BBQ is a delicious combination of BBQ Chicken, Ribs & Shrimp served on a big ole’ platter.   Now that’s a meal that gets us excited and you’ll feel the same way when that platter of deliciousness is sitting right in front of you.  Be warned though you’re going to need a napkin or two to clean up the BBQ sauce from this awesomeness.


On the Fence


At Perko’s, we have so many options of down-home, fresh-from-the-farm dinner meals, sometimes it is hard to choose just one!  If you’re on the fence and want something to satisfy a couple of different cravings, we have got the perfect dinner options for you.

Our chicken fried steak takes the smoothness of Perko’s steak sirloin and adds the down-home crunchy texture of fried chicken.  Feed two cravings at once with fried, breaded steak from Perko’s.

Another dually satisfying meal is our steak and popcorn shrimp.  East Coast meets the dirty South with a couple of cool dishes from around the US.  Our smooth-as-butter steak meets its perfect companion with a crunchy seafood favorite.

Don’t fret when you’re on the fence, satisfy a couple cravings at once with Perko’s farm fresh meals.


A New Take On An Old Classic


What’s more American than a hamburger?  If you’re looking to satisfy your craving for a classic lunch complete with juicy beef patties, melted cheese, and some fries on the side, Perko’s has all the goods to appease your appetite.

Some of our favorite hamburger options are our farm fresh takes on old classics.  Our haystack burger adds a tangy twist to your favorite juicy burger stacked high with roasted garlic and onion tanglers and topped off with a flavorful sauce.

For a spicier craving, try our ortega burger.  This hamburger is topped with chili and pepper jack cheese, placed on toasted sourdough bread.

Ditch the boring and try out a modern rendition of an American favorite.  View our full lunchtime menu at perkos.com.


A Good Place To Be


Even the best meal cannot make up for a lousy dining environment.  A loud, crowded, and dark restaurant is no place to enjoy a fresh-off-the-farm meal.  That’s why at Perko’s we have considered our customers’ comfort while eating at their dining room away from home.

In our restaurants you can expect a well-lit, friendly atmosphere to accompany your freshly prepared meal, allowing for plenty of conversation and memories in the making.  With our tables spread out, you will also have room to accommodate your friends and family – and be able to hear them, too!

We also have dining rooms fit to our farm-fresh identity.  You’ll feel like you’re right on the farm – but with less scents of animals and more smells of your favorite Perko’s dishes!

Next time you’re looking for a great place to host your family and friends, look no further than Perko’s for great service and an enjoyable atmosphere.  Happy dining!


Kid Friendly


At Perko’s, we value each one of our customers – especially our Perko’s kids.  We know kids can be picky and particular about their food but we are here to help.

With several options for both breakfast and lunch, we’ll get your kids well-fed.

Even though you may like exploring new foods and tastes, we know some of our Perko’s kids aren’t quite as adventurous yet.  We don’t mess with the classics – find pancakes and waffles at breakfast time for your kids’ stomachs and options like grilled cheese and hamburgers at lunchtime.

You can’t go wrong with your kids at Perko’s.  Bring them in for a meal on a deal!


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.


Super Bowl Sampling

Super Bowl

Are you ever in the mood for some spicy, hot buffalo wings? You know the kind, right? The kind that come in orders of 6 or 12 (or more!) piled on a plate, dripping with succulent, spicy buffalo sauce. The kind you crave whenever the Super Bowl is on, or when you wish you had time for Happy Hour. The wings that give you only a couple of bites of fiery, tender chicken—before you’re to the bone (but those couple of bites are totally worth it.) The wings you dip in ranch, then bleu cheese, then ranch again, all while making a mess of your table, fingers, and face. The kind you need paper towels—no, actually probably real towels—to wipe your hands and face with when you’re finished.  Read More »


Prove Your Mother Right

Breakfast foods

Surely you’ve heard the age old theory that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  It turns out your years of hearty eating before the start of the day as insisted by your mother were not in vain!

Breakfast has been undeniably linked to a smaller waistline.  Meal-skipping means more hunger and ravenous hunger means a recipe for overeating.  To stifle that afternoon hunger, eat a hearty, filling breakfast in the morning.

For farm fresh breakfast options from Perko’s, try our yummy garden omelette with plenty of veggies and topped with dairy fresh cheese, or another favorite: haystack potato cakes stacked high to curb your hunger.

Plus, add protein to your breakfast for that added dose of filling you need to get your day going.  For that added bonus, try Perko’s chicken fried steak or the Meat Lovers Combo complete with all your favorite breakfast fix-ins.

Stop that sluggish afternoon feeling and fill up in the morning on your Perko’s breakfast!
