Ross' Restaurant in Bettendorf, Iowa is being featured in this national contest and your votes count to win.

Just a week after I discovered Iowa made the list of 'grossest foods' with a loose meat sandwich, which isn't gross at all (at least to us), I see that one of the Quad Cities' most beloved restaurants, is up for the Best Loose Meat Sandwich in Iowa.

Ross' 24 Hours Restaurant in Bettendorf, IA., Home of the Magic Mountain, which yes, includes their famous loose meat, has been featured in a contest with USA Today and Sandwich America at,

"Ross' 24 Hours Diner's commitment to locally sourced ingredients shows in its menu. The loose meat sandwich, called a Rossburger, is made with seasoned and steamed all-natural ground beef piled on a homemade bun. It comes with or without cheese."
