Capriotti's has done the impossible -- it will soon offer a meatless cheese steak.

Capriotti’s says it is committed to offering plant-based eaters more than just a pile of veggies on bread or a typical plant-based burger patty.

The new Impossible Cheese Steak will give consumers the variety they want and a taste that rivals the original. The Impossible Cheese Steak sandwich will be available by Feb 18.

Capriotti’s began testing the Impossible Cheese Steak at select locations in Las Vegas in November of 2019.

Developed in partnership with Impossible Foods, the sandwich expands on Capriotti’s already impressive vegetarian menu, bringing the delight of a classic cheese steak to an even wider audience. With fan-favorite ingredients like melted cheese, fried onions and peppers piled on perfectly cooked, 100 percent plant-based protein, guests can enjoy a sandwich just as fresh and delicious as the original.

Along with launching the Impossible Cheese Steak Sandwich, Capriotti’s will also be rolling out an Impossible Meatball Sandwich later this spring. These plant-based options will join the brand’s other vegetarian options, the Veggie Chicken Cheese Steak, Veggie Turkey and Veggie Cole Turkey sandwiches. Customers will be able to order the sandwiches both in-store and online.

With 100 locations across the nation, Capriotti’s is most famous for its 40-year nightly tradition of slow-roasting whole, all-natural turkeys in-house and hand-shredding them each morning to feature in a variety of fan-favorite subs. This includes The Bobbie, the CAPastrami, made with hot pastrami, the Cole Turkey, and the original Cheese Steak.
