Did you know that Philly cheesesteaks are one of the most iconic sandwiches in America? They originated in 1930 when Philadelphia hot dog vendor, Pat Olivieri, grilled some finely sliced beef and made a sandwich using an Italian roll. If you would like to enjoy one, the best Philly cheesesteaks in Minneapolis can be found at these restaurants near our apartments:
Mayslack’s Bar & Grill
Stashu Maslajek was raised in Minneapolis where he became passionate about wrestling. He later made his mark in Chicago and became a crowd favorite in the Upper Midwest. After retiring, he returned home and opened Mayslack’s in 1955. The interior remains largely unchanged, and features cracked floor tiles and booths that are both creaky and private. Bands usually perform on Friday and Saturday nights, and they entertain diners from start to finish. The Philly cheesesteak is one of the customer favorites. It comes with peppers, sauteed onions, and melted cheese.
Frank and Andrea
While Frank and Andrea is famous for its made-from-scratch giant pizza slices, it also serves a perfectly prepared cheesesteak sandwich. Owners Frank and Antonio Gambino state they were born with a cooking gene. The restaurant is partially named after their Sicilian-born father, and the brothers provide a dining experience that’s not soon forgotten. Frank and Andrea is a local favorite and has gained recognition from Forbes and MN Daily. The Philly cheesesteak features cheese and grilled onions and can be enjoyed with seasoned fries.
When the 5-8 Club opened in 1928, it was a speakeasy commonly known as the 58th Street Club. During a renovation in the mid-1990s, workers discovered an underground garage door that used to conceal the bootleggers as they unloaded their cargo. It’s one of the last operating speakeasies in the United States and welcomes thousands of visitors every year. The Philly cheesesteak comes with sauteed onions, green peppers, and melted Swiss cheese.
