Times may have changed, but great food hasn’t!

Established in 1932, the Tenderloin Grill has been the home of the best tenders in Kansas City for nearly 90 years. First established as a food pushcart by the founding Nabor family, the restaurant – and the top-secret recipe for the popular pork tenderloin ¬– was purchased by Ricardo Herrera in 1974 and was owned and operated by the Herrera family for the nearly 50 years since.

Ricardo Herrera was the chief photographer at KMBC Channel 9 when he bought the Tenderloin Grill and continued to work at the TV station while operating the restaurant for another nine months before becoming a full-time restaurateur.

Over the years, the Tenderloin Grill has added hamburgers, fish sandwiches, fresh-cut fries and many other tasty new items to the menu, but the house-made “tender” batter and the secret hot sauce complemented with mustard, horseradish, onion and tomato toppings required no tinkering – and today deliver the same great fried tender taste satisfaction as they have for decades!

Purchased from the Herrera family in the fall of 2021 by longtime Westside resident Angel Hernandez along with Kenneth Kantner and Gregg Johnson of Minsky’s Pizza, the new owners want to deliver the same great taste experience provided by the Herrera family for the last 47 years.
