The Joint: Apollo’s Steaks moves to larger location
From Staff Reports
Everyone has their “go-to” place to eat. It might be with linen tablecloths and waiters in ties, or where you throw peanuts on the floor and carve your initials in the wooden tables. Whatever and wherever, it’s your “joint.”
One of our favorite cheesesteak joints has moved to a bigger location – and fortunately for us, it’s just a stone’s throw away from our office.
For you old downtown Newnan folks, Apollo’s Steaks has moved to the old “Mother’s” location across from the Coweta County government building. The expanded space (they originally had three tables), is a big improvement.
As to the cheesesteaks, well they have steak, chicken, steak/chicken, fish, veggie and even mushroom. You have options. We like options and we love their cheesesteaks. And yes, they are served on Amoroso rolls. “Amoroso” is an Italian word loosely translated as “bread of the gods.” Trust us.
Looking for something else? Whiting, catfish, tilapia, flounder, shrimp and some awesome sides are also available. Side note, fried shrimp is pretty awesome.
Apollo will be in the back on his flattop cooking away. Make sure and say “hey.” You might get a fist pump. Fist pumps are good.
