Short Order: Wario’s Beef & Pork

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Short Order: Wario’s Beef & Pork

The skies turned black when Sandman’s Cheesesteak abandoned the Arena District a year ago. An absence of walk-up cheesesteak sandwiches creates a void in the universe, and a giant hole in the stomach.
