This week’s #FoodFind is the classic Philly cheesesteak. Thinly sliced top-sirloin steak grilled with onions and green peppers, the sandwich is topped with big-eye Swiss and mayo.

Biting into the cheese steak, I immediately noticed the quality of the meat. At Barleycorn’s, the steak, brisket, pork and turkey are all smoked in house. The deli use its own seasonings and the flavor really comes through. I’m not familiar with putting mayo on a cheesesteak, but was pleasantly surprised by the contrast.

This sandwich was amazing, and a great stop when traveling through the Flint Hills.

And for those wondering about the name — the Barleycorn comes from the story and song of John Barleycorn. For the full story, see the back of the menu.
