About Cheesesteak Institute of America
The Cheesesteak Institute of America, AKA the CIA, is giving residents of Detroit, MI a little taste of the City of Brotherly Love by whippin’ up this Philly classic in all forms. The cheesesteak is, arguably, the most iconic sandwich in America, with roots going back to the 1930s. While this food truck doesn’t have quite as long of a history, it does have deep roots to the Motor City community. The Arnoldy family has been running this business since the 1980s. Know what that means? They’ve perfected the art of the cheesesteak, so this truck’s a must for fans of this classic diner sandwich.
The Arnoldys hold the traditional cheesesteak in reverence, so you’ll definitely find the mashup of thinly sliced steak, American cheese, and grilled onions all served on an Amoroso roll more than satisfying here. However, the CIA’s menu isn’t afraid to mix it up a bit and you’ll find some fun variations pop up on the truck from time to time. For example, why not toss in some eggs and make it a breakfast cheesesteak? And did we mention the waffle fries? These crisp, golden brown goodies are the perfect companion for any sandwich. Are you drooling yet? Then, what are you waiting for? Swing by the CIA and get your cheesesteak on. Even better? Book ‘em for your next event. You won’t regret it.
