About Sparrow's Philly Cheesesteaks

Home Town: Melbourne

Sparrow’s Philly Cheesesteaks run by Sammy Lynch and Geno Sparrow boasts the only proper cheesesteak joint in Melbourne, the boys, who collectively have over 25 years experience in the food industry, have created an authentic American food restaurant with real a Philadelphian attitude.

So what’s a cheesesteak? Invented in 1930 by Pat Olivieri, a South Philadelphian hot dog vendor, a Philly Steak is s a long, soft roll filled with thinly sliced sautéed rib eye beef and melted cheese. It goes well with added extras like sweet peppers and mushrooms and Sparrow’s has mastered both the famous cheesy drip and style of a 1985 proper cheesesteak. It’s a legit sandwich.

The Sparrow’s Philly Cheesesteak truck launched in November 2016 and offers a selection of traditional Philly steaks, with gourmet and vegetarian options, along with sides of wings, chilli cheese fries, pretzels and more.
