Putting ketchup on a steak is like putting ketchup on the Mona Lisa —some consider it offensive, but others consider it a special ritual that prepares the work of art for digestion. Chow down your own way with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of drinks and fare at Tobey Jack’s Mineola Steak House in Mineola, Iowa.
At Tobey Jack’s Steak House, seasoned grill masters dish up a menu of succulent, handmade fare and serve it in the newly remodeled dining room. Warm up jaw muscles with an order of hand-breaded onion rings ($6.99) fried to a golden brown to launch taste buds into a lightly battered planetary orbit. The hand-pattied double cheeseburger ($7.99) fills cavernous appetites and weighs down important tax documents with more than a full pound of beef blanketed in american cheese and served with a choice of potato or cup of soup. Meanwhile, the tenderloin ($6.99) pleases palates with a tenderized center-cut pork loin breaded, deep fried, and topped with bacon, sautéed onions, and american cheese. Tobey Jack’s also features prime rib on Friday and Saturday nights ($13.99–$24.99), providing a slow-roasted option for celebratory dinners, first dates, and reunions with long-lost imaginary friends.
