For a restaurant to be named Best Local Tenderloin in a state where the crown for best huge, paddle-shaped sandwich is a hotly-contested battle in every town is no small feat. But it also makes perfect sense for a restaurant that has appeared on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The longtime local favorite diner has all kinds of homestyle favorites, and every meal there tastes like it was prepared by your grandmother. Interestingly, Steer-In has also won in past years for best pizza, so no matter what you get there, you’ll get something you like.
