We visited Christy's Tasty Queen in the Turner District of Kansas City, Kansas after hearing great things about their pork tenderloin sandwiches. Other than some outdoor picnic tables, we found that there is no place to sit or eat. On the cool October day that we were first there, most people were eating in their cars.

The 30 year old local burger joint is justifiably famous for its pork tenderloins. The large pork tenderloin is the best that I have had anywhere in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Tender, with a good flavor - large and about 1/3" thick. This is a big sandwich for $5.80.

The side dishes aren't fresh made, but the fried mushrooms were good and the onion rings were very good. The cheeseburger was just ordinary. 

Although this isn't fast food, the kitchen at Christy's Tasty Queen is very quick. On our last visit, the cook apologized that the pork tenderloin hadn't cooked up quite right. She cooked a second one, but the food was still ready in just a few minutes.
