Where was Slyman’s located?
Slyman’s Tavern is the continuation of a wonderful Cleveland legacy, the original Slyman’s Restaurant located in downtown Cleveland. Opened in 1964, Slymans’ has become a Cleveland staple, loved and respected by all who come to enjoy the biggest and best corned beef sandwich.
How long has Slymans been business?
On St. Clair Ave., you’ll find a sandwich shop offering up classic corned beef Reubens stacked to impossible heights. Slyman’s has been open since the 1964, and to call this “hole in the wall” diner a restaurant is selling it short. Slyman’s is not just a place to get an incredible sandwich.
How many calories are in a slyman’s corned beef sandwich?
Less than that and you’d be better off eating tuna fish. On the upper side, there’s something about 16 ounces—an entire pound—that sounds like a good place to stop. As it is, one calorie calculator I visited put that 11.5 oz sandwich at 980 calories (sans pickle)!
What food is Cleveland known for?
Pierogi, Polish Boys, and paczki, brought by generations of Eastern European immigrants, might be the most well-known Cleveland food. A Polish Boy, not to be confused with a Louisiana Po’ Boy, is a kielbasa sausage on a bun, topped with coleslaw, french fries, and barbecue sauce, and it’s a local favorite.
