in 1932, Pat Oliveri was a vendor selling hot dogs in Philadelphia. Growing
tired of peddling the same old wieners, Pat had an idea. Carefully grilling
a tender beefsteak, surrounding it with select ingredients, and wrapping
it in a special Italian roll, Pat had invented an instant classic. The
Philly Cheese Steak was born.
opened in 1956 by Al Martino, Al's Steak House has been
a landmark in Alexandria, Virginia ever since. When John Severson took
over in 1965, their loyal customer base had grown dramatically, and to
this day, Al's is known to have the best Philly cheese steak in the area.
When I was younger, I personally remember taking my lunch money and sneaking
down to Al's during break from a local high school. Once you try one for
yourself, you will agree that it is the best there is.
