So I've been on Stx since last Sept. and I really miss a good cheese-steak sub (AKA Philly cheese steak). Now I've tried the Smokin' Grill and they have excellent Brisket but the c/s sub was basically a brisket sub! NOT THE SAME! I just tried that yellow sub trailer south of Schuama gas station/sunny isle area and it tasted ok but it was a flattened sub roll !?!? the best one I've had (and I'm sorry to say 'cause I'm not a fan) was from Subway!!! That's pretty SAD!! If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know before I have to fly back to B'more!!! Thanks!!

I think No Bones has a good one. They make a good Ruben and so does Paradise Cafe. Maybe they do steak and cheese to.

No Bones is pretty good. Not truly authentic because they use sliced cheese instead of the sauce, but very tasty nonetheless.

Blue Lagoon is already closed down.

Blue Water Terrace has an awesome Cheesesteak, however, it is not like a traditional philly.

Lost dog on Sun/Mon. I'm Philly. If you have to say Philly it ain't a cheesesteak. and please don't call it a sub again.

Matt, I know what you mean. I have been here for over 8 years. I really miss a good cheese steak sub.

When I go back to Maryland to visit family one of the first things I crave for is a good cheese steak with mushrooms, also a good crab cake.

No bones has a pretty good cheese steak. Ask for American cheese. I also have found one at Rhythms at Rainbow beach that I like better. Problem is, I don't go west very much. I had one at Rum Runners once, I sent it back. So much gristle and fat. Gross! A lot of places that do carry it make it with roast beef. That is not a cheese steak.

Now you got me hungry for a good cheese steak sub with old bay fries. YUM!

You are here in C'sted has an awesome steak and cheese sandwich... hands down the best on the island. No really philly style but I'd say better.

I'm Philly, too. And Jamison is correct. Cheesesteaks were a fixture years before Cheez Whiz went on the market. Frizzled, then chopped (on the grill) beef, white American cheese melted on top,(also while on the grill), stuffed into an Amoroso-style roll. And no - absolutely, no - pizza sauce! Sadly, Pat Olivieri (the originator) ruined his own invention when he added the Whiz (which is cheaper and quicker) years later. Authentic shops stick with real cheese. I grew up (and old) on these and never heard of using Whiz on them until a few years ago.

It's funny. I grew up with that sandwich (even though I have rarely eaten meat) and people still think they know better. We need to come up with another name for a cheesesteak, but I guess that's when people add sandwich, sub, etc to it. God that's a great sandwich. Please don't bring up amerosos again lol.

If you catch land crabs from mangroves or anywhere, locally, you must feed them for a couple days to a week, to purge their systems of any toxins (such as manchineel or other poisonous plants) they may have eaten, prior to your ingesting them.

we've seen an occasional blue claw in the water on the east end, but I can't imagine eating them, they are so tiny, and only one real claw, but the claw itself is certainly blue. You'd never get much more meat than just what was in the one claw, and it's a mini...nothing like a good 'real' blue claw
