For a grilled steak sandwich, look no further than Steak Escape, a sandwich and fries spot that takes it to the next level. Currently based in Columbus, Ohio, Steak Escape was started in 1982 by Ken Smith and Mark Turner to spread the deliciousness of cheesesteak sandwiches around Northern Columbus. Starting with fresh ingredients like 100% USDA sirloin steak, hormone free chicken breast, Italian rolls baked in-house, and fresh cut potatoes, Steak Escape has built a niche for themselves with their own recipes inspired by East Coast cheesesteak traditions.
Fresh and hot of the grill, sirloin choices include the Triple Cheesesteak, Bourbon and Bacon, Original Philly, and Smokin’ BBQ sandwiches, as well the Primo Double Steak Burger, their version of a Dagwood, as well as a Cubano sandwich. The Black & Bleu, for instance, has grilled sirloin topped with mushrooms, crispy fried onions, Cajun spice and bleu cheese sauce, plus mayo, lettuce and tomato.
Chicken offerings include the Chicken Bacon Club, Ragin’ Cajun, and Crispy Buffalo Chicken sandwich. The Grandest Chicken is grilled breast nested in a blanket of mushrooms, sauteed onions, green peppers and provolone cheese.
Side salads are also available, and a Grilled Salad, too, which is any sandwich made on a bed of spring mix greens. The Grilled Wrap option cuts down the carbs for any of the sandwich styles by using a wrap instead of the Italian roll bread. Steak Escape offers a delicious variety of french fries, either plain (Naked Fries) or covered with grilled sirloin and a variety of luscious toppings from Sriracha to Ranch to Bleu cheese, bacon and grilled onions. There is also the Smashed Potato, which is a baked potato smashed on the grill and topped with the customer’s choice of recipes.
Steak Escape gives back to the community, too. They collect donations year round and they match customer donations dollar for dollar. At the end of each quarter, Steak Escape selects a local charity or worthy cause, and every three months gives a check to its chosen cause. With nearly 150 locations, this can add up to a significant contribution to their communities.
