WHY A STROMBOLI FESTIVAL?
Evansville, Indiana is known for it’s unique version of the Stromboli sandwich. The sandwich is made on a buttered Italian roll with sausage, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheeses. This version was introduced to Evansville in the late 1950's by the Dillard family. Today, a similar sandwich can be found at several dozen pizza restaurants and bars. Many adding unique twists in an effort to be identified as the "Best Stromboli".
In recent years and with the diverse growth of Evansville, several new restaurants have joined the scene claiming to have the authentic New York or Italian Stromboli. You could say there is certainly a bit of controversy brewing!
