HAMILTON CO. — The popular local attraction "Tenderloin Tuesdays" is back for its 11th year.

Each Tuesday in July, the iconic breaded tenderloin sandwich will be celebrated along the "Tenderloin Trail" in Hamilton County. With over 50 restaurants to choose from, both dine-in and carry-out options are available.

The 2020 campaign will be hyper-focused on local restaurants impacted by COVID-19, according to "Hamilton County Tourism." This year, the group is not asking restaurants to offer discounts, but instead asking consumers to show up and support.

"We recognize this has been an incredibly difficult year for our local restaurants, and we want to do everything we can to drive business to them," Ashley Ledford, director of marketing and promotions at Hamilton County Tourism, said. "Instead of asking restaurant partners to offer discounts and deals, we're asking consumers to show up and support restaurants through dine-in or carry-out."

"Even though the promotion is different this year, we know both residents and visitors enjoy participating in this tradition," Ledford said. "Hamilton County Tourism hopes to bring the promotion back to its full capacity in 2021."
