One of Christner’s most popular dishes is our 14 oz. Berkshire Tomahawk chop. To make the most out of your Christner’s pork chop meal, it’s essential to choose the right pairings. This means selecting not only the right side dish but also the right beverage to round out your meal. The following are some side dishes and alcohol pairings that we recommend.

Try Our Berkshire Tomahawk Pork Chop

Christner’s pork chop meal consists of a delectable 14 oz. Berkshire Tomahawk chop. Berkshire pork comes from Berkshire hogs, which were discovered in England centuries ago during the time of Oliver Cromwell. Since then, the popularity of Berkshire pork has risen across the world and it consistently sets the standard for pork quality today. We use only the best ingredients for any of our dishes, and our pork chop is no exception. Next time you’re at Christner’s, give this delicious bone-in pork chop a try.
