Clint is the man running Rip City Grill. He closed for winter break, but re-opened on February 1. Even when arriving the next day at lunchtime, he had a line going for his food. Must be damn good!

I love beef. It's one of those times where we need the Dr. Seuss books to help out. "I will have it on a boat, I will eat it with a goat...oh, but then I'll also eat the goat so I must wash it down with a beer float." OK, so maybe that's the adult version.
After ordering the sandwich, you can also ask for one of Clint's add-on styles. All fantastic choices, I must say. Wait. Oh crap. "El Caliente." Pepperjack cheese (cheese of awesomeness) with sauteed onions and jalapenos. Must have now.

Me: *thinks* "Hell yeah!" (actually replied more professionally than that)
|Tri-Tip Sandwich, El Caliente Style|
(Rip City Grill)
The tri-tip slices were juicy and flavorful. The tri-tip appeared to dip into the well-done category, but that's mad skill to keep it juicy. The jalapenos and onions had nice crunch, the slightest spice emanating from the peppers. Cheese = win. The sweet/tangy BBQ sauce turned this sandwich into a mighty struggle. My jeans and hoodie sustained BBQ sauce battle scars. I still won. Hahaha, take that, (awesomely) evil sandwich!
Paid just $7 for that, a good deal for such quality. Check out Rip City Grill and get some tri-tip! 8.5/10
