Lancer Steak House

Lancer Steak House
In the post World War II era, a number of African-American-owned businesses opened on Carnegie. Perhaps none was as well-known as Lancer Steak House at 7707 Carnegie Avenue. The popular restaurant, which soon also became a favored meeting place for Cleveland politicians, was opened in 1961 by Fleet and Beulah Slaughter, who operated it until Fleet's death in 1975. The restaurant changed hands several times before it was purchased by George Dixon in 1986. Dixon is shown in this 1995 photo standing in front of the restaurant. The restaurant continued to be a popular spot on the Avenue until 2009 when it suffered a disastrous fire and was forced to permanently close. | Source: Cleveland.com
