DeRushaEats: Slim's Philly Cheesesteak


Published:

I'm not an expert on the perfect, authentic Philly Cheesesteak. Yes, I've been to Geno's, I've been to Pat's—although the last time I was in Philly I went to Alla Spina and had the best cheesesteak of my life, made with sausage instead of ribeye and served on a pretzel roll.

But I digress.

The north suburb of Brooklyn Center now has a huge new gleaming restaurant called Slim's that reminds me, from the outside, of many of my favorite restaurants that I grew up around in Chicago. Huge pizza ovens, nice Italian Beef sandwiches, free refills—you know, the stuff I wanted when I was 14 years old in suburban Des Plaines.

Slim's promises a "makes ya think you were in philly" cheesesteak. And guess what? It's awesome. It's got that drip, that saltiness, that giant mound of Cheese Whiz. It's served on freshly baked bread. And it's $6.49.

The sandwich was long and thin, just like a Philly cheesesteak should be. It was messy and delicious.

Skip the flavorless Italian Beef sandwich if it's still on the menu (I don't see it on the website now; I was there a couple weeks ago and it was limp and lacked any zip to it).

But if you're in the north suburbs, looking for a perfect cheesesteak, get to Slim's and order it with Whiz!
