Boy those sandwiches look good.  Unfortunately I've never been to the Midwest.  Found the site below that has some great pork shots.  I think I gained a few pounds just watching the slide show -

I noticed the Hash House A-Go-Go in San Diego didn't have a picture posted.  Those were some big-uns.

Must be the Christmas special: pine tree growing out of it with red & green trimmings.

Talked to a guy once about a restaurant that went out of business but was always packed with people.  He said it was from mis-management.  The amount of business doesn't guarantee success.  The ones I can't figure out are the restaurants that never have people in them (and not from bad food), yet stay open for years.  Location and customer base can make a differenct as well.  There was a frozen yogurt shop in Carmel Mountain that was doing a great business and was always busy.  The owner got upset at a rent increase and moved the business several miles away to a location in Poway and his customer base did not follow.  The center he went into was small and only had a Wall Mart and a couple other little stores.  He went out of business in 6 months.

Could be a number of reasons but my favorite is that it is usually a money-laundering operation for organized crime  8)

I myself had my very first Amish Pork tenderloin sammich today for lunch.  Not bad, but not even near big enough in my estimation.  I like it when I have to use 3 hands to hold the thing (wow, that didn't come out the way I had intended  :o)
