• The inventor of the first sloppy joe is unknown, but recipes for the dish date back to the Depression era. Abraham and Bertha Kaled created a sloppy-joe style entrée, called a "loosemeat sandwich," in 1934 for their Iowa diner. Some say the dish originated at Sloppy Joe's Bar in Key West, Florida, but the famous tavern boasts no such claim.
