Pork Chop John s serves the original pork chop sandwich, which was founded in Butte, Mont., in 1924. The original Pork Chop John, John Burklund, sold his pork chop sandwiches from the back of a wagon located on the corner of Mercury and Main Streets. As demand for the unique sandwich increased, John opened a restaurant in 1932, which consisted of a counter, 10 stools and a walk-up window. Still known as Pork Chop John s, that same store remains the restaurant s flagship retail location and home office. There are two additional locations in Butte and Bozeman, Mont. In addition to pork chop sandwiches, Pork Chop John s also serves hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken sandwiches and fries.
