A Remedy for Those Mourning the Loss of Gooloney's

Thinking about not having Golooney's anymore to provide Minneapolis with the greasy delicious heaven of a philly cheese steak is enough to make one sick to their stomach. So, I was super excited to hear that there is an alternative now that Golooney's has been 86ed.

Being a Uptowner myself I've often passed Caffrey's, but never stopped in. It's right between the Smiten Kitten and that bar with the cowboys painted on it, an interesting spot. My sister went this weekend and said their philly is almost as good as Golooney's. The bread is exactly the same and really the only difference was there wasn't as much "meat juice goodness". Maybe a little less greasy? Not sure, but the verdict that Caffrey's may be able to fill the void Golooney's has left.

Locally owned and operated, Caffrey's uses all fresh daily ingredients. They even roast their own beef and slice the meat to order! Awesome. If you can't stop in they deliver to all of Uptown and even most of Downtown til 3:00AM.

Reading up on the place I learned of a sub called the Blue Cow. The Blue Cow is among other signatures subs at Caffrey's and includes roast beef, blue cheese crumbles, bacon, lettuce, tomato, red onions and mayo. Holy! I will have to run a marathon and then get down with one of those.
