Medium Plates

burger-2Just the right size for a hearty lunch. Our medium plate selections are savory dishes inspired by comfort foods from around the United States. The southwest inspired C.C. Crimini Tacos have a depth of flavor that’s amazing with a porter. We have a soft spot for the giant Cheese Crusted Iowa Style Pork Sandwich as it reminds us of our Midwestern roots – this giant slice of cheese crusted pork on a bun is perfect with an American style pale lager or even a Pale Ale.

These lunch inspired sandwich style plates are served with your choice of hand cut fries, house slaw or for one dollar substitute handmade spudpuppies, steamed or roasted veggies. (Menu items subject to change)
