The History of the Steak Sandwich

The irresistible Philly cheesesteak has a pretty tasty and somewhat debated history.

For the most part, most folks agree that Pat and Harry Olivieri began the Philly’s journey. Operating a hot dog cart in Philadelphia in the 1930s, the brothers cooked up some beef with onions and served it in a roll. Patrons really liked it. Later, folks covered the beef and onions with cheese and this masterpiece fell into the mouths and hearts of folks across the country.

Nowadays, if you’re searching for the best steak and cheese sub near me, you’ll likely find different versions. For instance, some sub restaurants serve these sandwiches with American cheese or Cheese Whiz.  Other diners add mushrooms and bell peppers.

A hidden spot that we would have never found had I not Googled for good pizza restaurants. –

I just made my second trip to Charlotte in a month and I just made my third trip to Tony’s pizza in a month. I am absolutely hooked on their cheesesteaks. They are huge – the hubby and I can barely finish one. Juicy, tender chopped steak, gooey provolone and lots of grilled peppers, onions and mushrooms stuffed into a super fresh sub roll. It is as good as some that I’ve had in Philly. Really.

Our third visit was for pizza. The XL authentic NY pie was too big to fit on our kitchen table. Once again – really. I thought the sauce had a little too much oregano but I’m the only one who didn’t love it. Four famished family members couldn’t finish this filling food (felt a little like Dr Seuss there for a sec!).

My son is moving from Charlotte next month. There are a lot of things that I’m going to miss – Tony’s Pizza will definitely be one of them. – Sue F.

What Cheese Is Best on A Philly Cheesesteak?
