Barry's Cheesesteaks and More

by Steve Eslinger » Thu Aug 23, 2018 9:44 am

Good Morning forumites, I come with a question: Anyone know what's up with Barry's Cheesesteaks and More? My wife and I were jonesing for cheesesteaks the other day, and having read good things about the place, we headed down Preston to check it out. Alas, the place was shuddered and apparently defunct. I hit the googler and saw a couple of articles talking about a new location going in at the old GeeChee Bayou spot in Old Louisville. The specific Courier article I read was dated late June. Anyone know if they are up and running? Thanks in advance!

Very puzzling, Steve. Their Facebook page and website both still list the old address, 7502 Preston Highway, and they're both active ... there was a long FB post just two hours ago, and a similar post yesterday. Kind of an unexpected post for a cheesesteak house, too. Have they always been ... evangelical? :shock:

I'd suggest calling them at 883-2874 and see if you can find out what's up.

Barry's Cheesesteaks and More wrote:Hello Facebook family, I love you, yes, I love you. 1Corinthians,10:23-24, "Everything is permissible, but not beneficial. Everything is permissible, but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others ". Today I pray that you would meditate on these verses. And ask the LORD to open up your heart and you minds to the things that are beneficial in God's Kingdom, and also to do good to others. Sometimes we have brothers and sisters in Christ who are struggling and sometimes we actually passed them by. But let's take some time to help build them up today, you never know what a person's going through until you reach out to them. I know you have needs also, but one of the ways the Lord has blessed me came through looking out for others, as I looked out for others, God poured His goodness on me. Prayed to do the things that are beneficial for the Kingdom of God and to help your brothers and sisters up who are struggling today. We love you so much at Barry's Cheesesteaks and More, but God's love is greater, as God pours His love on you, you pour your love on others. Talk to you soon, God bless you. I'm Pastor Barry K Washington an Evangelist for the Glory of God. WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT! I LOVE YOU .

Yes, from what I've read, he's quite evangelical. And yes, I too was puzzled by the recency of the Facebook activity. When we walked up to the door and looked inside, it certainly looked like it hadn't been open for a while. The taco food truck in the front also lent credence to our conclusion it was no longer a going venture. I'll probably just swing by the Old Louisville spot some day on my ride home from work.

We just ate at Barry's one day last week and no signs of his closing down the Preston location.They were busy as always, now Barry himself was not there as he had been injured but his more than capable staff had it covered. Also if you are just peeking in at the place when they are closed they are more church basement in decor not fancy in any means if you want fancy go east not in our neighborhood but your loss.

Thanks for that update Bev. Sounds like I was mistaken, but this was around noon on Tuesday, and it just looked like a place that was no longer open. Not exactly sure what gave me that impression other than furniture askew, etc and the fact the door was locked and the place dark. Also, the taco truck in front was odd. Was that there last week? Anyway, I’m guessing I just caught them on the wrong day.
As to ‘fancy,’ and whether that matters to me—nah, I love places like Roof Top Grill and your typical neighborhood taqueria. My comments were simply about how it appeared closed.
Finally, I’m glad you posted because I’ve been meaning to compliment your avatar. We have a twin, goes by Eno. He don’t need no tail...

When they are out of food, or have food supply issues, they shutter the doors. It is all or nothing. I spoke to Barry several weeks ago when I was there and he explained that if the bread supplier doesn't deliver, or they run out of food, which they do often, they close up. Always best to call before you go. Today, Friday, they've posted on their Facebook page that they bread supplier didn't deliver, so they are closed. It's kind of Brigadoonish. :D

Barry's is absolutely awesome, and run by great folks. Don't allow myself to enjoy too often, but probably my favorite "guilty pleasure" meal in town.

I couldn't believe our son ordered the large cheesesteak, which is actually 2 smalls but then he wrapped half and took the second half home for later. I have trouble eating the small but it is so good I give it my best effort.
