“Sandwich King” Bringing Pork & Mindy’s to Elmwood Park

ELMWOOD PARK -  Elmwood Park is pleased to announce that a Pork & Mindy’s restaurant, started by local celebrity Jeff “The Sandwich King” Mauro, is coming to Restaurant Row. The restaurant will feature a rooftop patio and is expected to be open by early 2020.

Billed as “Creative BBQ,” the restaurant will be located at 7528 W. North Avenue on Restaurant Row. The property was purchased by the Village in 2018 with the goal of bringing a new restaurant into the thriving district.

“A vital community has thriving businesses,” said Elmwood Park Village President Angelo “Skip” Saviano. “Part of our job is helping new businesses find the right location in our community and that’s exactly what happened to bring Pork & Mindy’s to Restaurant Row.”

Pork & Mindy’s will open after spending approximately $1.4 million to renovate the existing structure. The Village is selling the property for $500,000.

“Elmwood Park is known as a great place to eat,” said Trustee Angelo Lollino. “Not only do we have terrific food, these restaurants contribute an enormous amount to our local economy. All of the residents of Elmwood Park benefit by having businesses like Pork & Mindy’s come to our community.”

Born in Elmwood Park, Mauro partnered with his longtime friend Kevin Corsello to start Pork & Mindy’s. There are currently four Pork & Mindy’s restaurants in Chicago.

Jeff Mauro is nationally known as “The Sandwich King” and Pork & Mindy’s has no shortage of fantastic offerings including creations like Bao to the Pork, the Chicago Cheesesteak, and the Frick’N Chick’N Salad Roll.
