Goner Message Board / Food & Drink / Jack Pirtle's "Steak" Sandwich
Posted: Aug 16, 2007 11:06 pm | Edited by: Alisa
 
All you guys coming in for Gonerfest have to find a Jack Pirtle's (not real hard to do) and partake of this. I swear, it's the ambrosia of the gods. Also, a great hangover cure and good for what ails you when you have a bad cold.
Be sure to get it all the way - with slaw, cheese, and gravy. Amazing!

It's the best gray meat you can get in Memphis. Windy and Millionaire saved my ass with one last year at GF3.
Get it with pickles.

I saw Windy eating said sandwich last year and opted not to take a bite when she offered one for some dumb reason. What a maroon. I'm eating several at GF4. How's the chicken at that place?

Oh yeah, pickles too!

The chicken is an experience. There's absolutely nothing crispy about the "batter". It all kind of melts in your mouth. And, it is tasty. Plus, they serve gravy with everything. Everything. You can pour some gravy over the chicken thigh and it's somewhat like eating chicken fried steak...on a bone.
But, the main thing I go for there are the chicken livers. Like a couple of bucks for a dozen, and absolutely delectable. They do serve a side of gravy with the chicken livers.
The only thing that is possibly wrong is that sometimes it's a tad bit salty...but I don't eat salt on a regular basis so what do I know about that.

Absolutely go for the steak sandwich all the way at GF4. Eat twenty. It's an experience you won't soon forget!

Ditto for the chicken livers and vats of the gravy with a roll. Or do they do biscuits now?

The greasiest gravy in the world but it is good with those little starchy biscuits.

just order it with everything - they with slather it with cheese, gravy, slaw and pickles. SOOOOOO good. It's great with their sweet tea, or if you're feeling "local" get the strawberry soda

You're not just anti-redneck, you're a metrosexual.

chicken loving people use words like metrosexual.

My friend Cort was eating one of those steak sandwiches and the "Vegan Police" tried to make him feel guilty.
We just laughed and laughed.
I reminded her that beer is vegan and offered her one of mine.
no responce as she walked away

I recently learned that vegans don't eat honey...because it is stealing from bees. Slap a vegan today!

We were hanging out before some kinda punk rock show.
The memphis vegans had such a bad case of "Group Think" that their egocentric behavior reached points of gang violence.

vegans are only good for 3 things

1) drinkin' red wine with em' before rock-n-roll shows
2)Yellin' at the band inbetween songs
3)gettin' nekid after the show and then passing out

and that's about it
don't even stick arround for the breakfast arguement
leave!!!!

I recently learned that there are state employees who haul roadkill off the highways of our grand country and turn them into mulch

so a real vegan can't even garden

fuck the vegans

The Jack Pirtle steak sandwich was the first thing I ate in Memphis for GFIV. Despite the fact it was the saltiest thing on Earth, I loved it! I ate mine, half of the wife's sandwich, and most of a 6-piece chicken liver. Except for extreme thirst, I was fine afterwards, but the wife got the trots, so caveat emptor.

And here I thought you were cool.

We had them on our way out of town Mon. The millionaire was still too hungover to properly enjoy it and THREW HALF OF IT AWAY

blasphemy.

I'm not a fan of liver in general and this was my first encounter with chicken livers. But dude, they were battered and deep-fried. How could they be bad? I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you batter and fry a sock it will be delicious.

blasphemy.
The thought of that sandwich being discarded made me weep openly in my cubicle. And I thought you were cool, Millionaire!

To be fair, we were already on the road and I did not dare risk encountering Pirtle's Steak Sandwich in liquid form

Several hours after throwing it away at some truck stop in Illinois, I started having visions of it taunting me from the garbage can. Dammit!!!!!! I would give my left nut for one right now.

That's pretty much it. I fought the urge to puke for at least two hours before I finally felt "ok". I was listening to a book on tape and kept hearing things like [gravy] [pickles] [slaw], and while Windy was sleeping, I kept up with the "did you hear that?" "gravy? what the hell???"

I will never make that mistake again.
