Many people travel through Iowa on route to Mt. Rushmore, a great national park for any eyes to behold, or on the way to Sturgis Biker Week, for the biker in us all. Sioux City, Iowa is just south of the South Dakota border and a great place to visit. Not only does the Missouri River run through the city, separating it from Nebraska, but it is also full of rolling hills; the Sioux City area is home to the beautiful Loess Hills. Now that may not be enough reason for you to travel to Sioux City just to gaze upon their beauty, but if you are traveling along Interstate 29, give it a try. And while you are in Sioux City you must get a taste of Midwest living. The loose meat sandwich is big in these parts. And Sioux City has it’s own brand of goodness. But with two competing loose meat classic restaurants there is a challenge a waitin”! Tastee’s In and Out and Miles Inn both offer their own version of the loose meat sandwich. And you guessed it, the two restaurants are only a few blocks from each other. Tastee’s (sandwich of the same name) offers you an old time drive thru feeling. The family can go and sit at the picnic tables and enjoy a delicious round of sandwich (and the best onion chips ever made). While Mile’s Inn provides the Charlie Boy loose meat sandwich in a bar setting. It is paired with a Schooner, a large ice cold beer in a frozen mug. Miles’ sign reads Coldest beer in town! A Facebook page is even dedicated to the rivalry over which place is the best. Stop in and make your own opinion! I’ll save mine!
