Pork Tenderloin sandwiches? Dang, I didn't have to travel to the Midwest after all! But for me, it's all about the stuffed burgers. Having been to Minnesota for some Jucy Lucys, I figured this may be as close as I'd otherwise get to having another for the foreseeable future.
(FYI, another Portland cart, Lucy's Original, serves Jucy Lucys, but has not been seen for months. The last time I checked, the owners had taken a winter hiatus -- but may do rare catering appearances.)

The cheese transformed into bubbly, sexy attire. I get the picture. The beef patties became the change room to slip into something more comfortable. Aw, and look at how the cheese models jalapeno lingerie so well!
Fried onion rings and smoky chipotle are added. The latter even possesses a noticeable backend zip. Suddenly, the cheese/beef duo has perfume and a lasso to reel me in. Just perfect. This seriously calls for food porn music. The whole ensemble is so dang unfair to a gluttonous panda.
Oh, we can't forget the refreshing lettuce and tomato, because something on this burger must be healthy.
Anyway, for food photo purposes, I sliced through the middle, revealing the glorious cross-section. The cheese raced out from between the patties like a flowing river.

*sings* Cry me a river...cry me a river....
Each burger comes with free chips. You can get fries or onion rings instead for a couple bucks more.
|What greeted me upon opening the takeout box
(1) Ask if spicier peppers can be used in these burgers. Perhaps some habaneros and ghost peppers can be sparingly added. After all, we don't want to decimate the population here, right?
(2) I must add bacon. It may cost a little more, but who cares? It's meat crack.
All the menu items sound great. I've found another place to get a great burger, and I'll have to come back for more! 8.5/10
