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 [...]

Map your way to your nearest Perko’s location

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!

So don’t be shy to ask, because like we said, you’re our guest and we’re glad you came! So stroll on into Perko’s this weekend and get your meal, whatever time of day, just the way you like it!


Best parts of breakfast fruits

Breakfast fruitsFruit is great any time of day, but when it comes to that first injection of fuel for your body in the morning, fruit becomes that much more crucial!

But what do you get out of each kind of fruit? Obviously you know that there’s going to be different tastes from all of them, but there’s a whole lot more to what makes up each particular fruit and their chemistry that make them healthy in different and unique ways. And as you also probably know, there’s a lot of ways that you can get fruit as a part of your breakfast at Perko’s. Whether it’s on top of pancakes or waffles, in the form of juice, or arriving to you in a muffin, fruit comes in many ways at Perko’s.

So today we want to share with you some info we came across about the different aspects that make certain fruits so desirable come breakfast time, or really any time of day. Take a look… Read More »

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!


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.
