R.I.P. Golooney's

Say goodbye to old Golooney's. If you had the chance to visit you probably know the good and bad of it...but one thing is for sure, they had a damn good cheese steak. Greasy and full of meat, just like America...I mean a cheese steak should be.

Don't fret however, there will be a replacement for that glorious corner in Uptown and a lot sooner than you think. Savoy (also a pizza joint) is projected to open the 1st of May ( I personally don't know a lot about this place, but I intend to read up. They already have 3 other Minnesota locations in Downtown St. Paul, East St. Paul and Newport. Their menu expands a little further than the Golooney's menu, but I've noticed there are no cheese steaks. We'll see Savoy, we'll see.

Check out Savoy opening sometime in May (*crosses finger*)
2329 Hennepin Avenue
Minneapolis, MN

You can tell me how it is and if it sucks I will not waste my time...just kidding.

So sad to hear that Golooney's no longer exists. I lived in MPLS about 10 years ago, and to this day that was my favorite cheese steak ever. Their pizzas were pretty lousy, but that sandwich was a thing of beauty.
