Fire and Ice Cheesesteaks and lemonade

Driving on West Broadway a new restaurant called Fire and Ice...they advertise Philly cheesesteaks and lemonade .....they claim to open, but i was alittle too early, i think. I will be there asap, I need a good cheesesteak!

  1. It is open, though I haven't seen reviews from anyone I trust. The only thing I've heard is that it is a takeout place. I'm skeptical that they'll be able to top Papa's, but I wouldn't mind throwing a little business to that area.

    1. Hmm sorta sounds a bit like Licciardi's, the old drive-in on Central NE. I still miss that lemonade when the temperature and humidity shoot up in the Summer. Sadly right now, lemonade makes me think TheraFlu.

      1. There's one on University in STP. I have not eaten there nor do I know anyone who has.

        1. Can you give an idea (besides just West Broadway) of where this place is located. I'll go try it.

            Penn and Broadway. I believe it replaces the old Bean Scene.

              5 miles west of 94? maybe less, on the north side of the street

            2. Went with high hopes, I want that area to find a anchor tenant that would draw people. A Philly Cheesesteak it's not. Mystery meat, some kind of unidentifiable cheese and a bun that is softer and has less taste than a hot dog bun at Super America.

                NO! not a soft roll...minnesota's death nail on "cheesesteaks". thanks for the advice....we can only keep on wishing. I will stick with my mail ordered pork roll til we get something that has even a passing resemblance to a decent hoagie roll.

                  Thanks. I expected the place to be really bad, but you confirmed that for me. Such a shame. How hard is it to make a decent cheesesteak?

                    it"s not hard, it's impossible it seems

                      I hesitate to share this because it's already hard enough to get them, but New French bakery has a mini baguette that works for me. It's what I use for my Italian beef and Philly's when I make them at home. Hot cherry peppers, onion and yes, whiz for the Philly. Mozzarella or baby swiss and hot giardiniera for the Italian beef.
