Heartland Beer Cheese Steak Sandwich

Why just drink beer when you can incorporate it into a dish. The Sun King Brewing Wee Mac Scottish Ale cheese fondue is so good that you will beg for an extra helping for your fries.

The Ultimate Hoagie

This Hoagie brings all the meats. Topped with some giardiniera and some baby greens, the meat extravaganza is hard to turn down.

Midwestern Madness Pork Chop Sandwich

Forget the applesauce because this boneless grilled pork chop brings the heat with the signature Mango Habanero Madness sauce. With all that flavor, no one will question eating grilled kale as a garnish.

Hoosier Fried Chicken Sandwich

Forget those other chicken sandwich wars, this chicken sandwich stakes it claim as bracket champion thanks to the fried green tomatoes and cheddar pimento spread. No pickles needed.

Horseradish Crusted Beef Tenderloin Croissant

Horseradish and beef are a classic combination. With the brie and oven-dried tomatoes, this dish feels more like a bistro menu item than a stadium offering.
