TC's Point After in Dewitt IA has closed
Seems like my favorite Iowa breaded pork tenderloin joints have gone by the wayside over the last couple of years.
I visited Red Barn
in Exira in the summer of 2015, an Ayersian
recommendation. Although the BPT was fantastic and clearly my second favorite of that particular trip, I Knew something wasn't right when they didn't have half the items on the menu. When Chris Ayersian
later asked me about their pie specials, my response was "what pie specials? Sure enough shortly thereafter they closed.
On a later visit to Iowa in the fall of 2015 I finally had the opportunity to visit The Augusta Restaurant
in Oxford IA a place that Davydd
had mentioned several times on the forum. Transplants from New Orleans, the owners still knew how to do a BPT right. Shortly afterwards The Augusta
relocated to Iowa City and not much longer after that they closed for good.
Finally, when I first visited TC's Point After
in Dewitt IA back in 2010 the general manager, Michelle, had recently taken over the reigns from original owner Chuck Cox one year earlier. I came to the realization that this was my favorite BPT in all of Iowa and my second favorite overall (The 1st place honor goes to Nick's Kitchen
in Huntington IN) When I returned 5 years later with Chi Town Diner
, Michelle was still at the helm and nothing had changed we both agreed that this was the best BPT we've ever had. 6 months afterwards, new ownership took over and word on the internet was that things were starting to slip.Here's
an article, and it appears that TC's Point After
might be in danger of closing as of November 1. If it does, it will be a sad ending to a legendary establishment.
We'll be visiting Iowa next fall and we'll be on the hunt for a solid BPT and .Our visit will fall on a Sunday, when many BPT establishments are closed, and although TC's Point After
was supposed to be our first choice it looks like Goldie's Ice Cream Shoppe
in Prairie City will be our best bet
