Steak&Cheese Sub

I haven't had a steak&cheese sub since last year. I'm looking for a place that serves a tasty, tender steak&cheese sub North of Boston (inside Route 128). I'm not looking for a place in Boston because it's hard to find a parking spot. I have been to Carl's in Waltham, Bob's in Medford and I Chef in Arlington. I have also been D'Angelo's too. Does anyone have a favorite spot for a good steak&cheese sub served in a huge sub roll or french bread? Size and taste does matter! Any recommendations would be appreciated.

  1. I might get in trouble for saying this on chowhound, but Papa Gino's makes a really, really good steak and cheese sub. Really good!

      I actually agree with's as solid as a D'Angelos (I love the number #9, despite the high price).

    2. A&A Deli in Brattle Square, Arlington, used to make an excellent steak and cheese, but it has been a long time since I have been there, so I'm not sure if they are still good.

      1. There was a place in North Reading- near the high school- that used to have great cheese steaks- called the Hornets Nest. I think they had a fire a few years ago, and I haven't had a cheese steak from there in years- but they were so good. I used to get a large cheese steak with raw onions and mushrooms. Maybe other hounds can confirm if it is still there.

          YES, we are still there. we re-opened 3 months after the fire. thank you for your recommendation.

        2. Being born and raised in Beverly, i may be bias, however i still find myself comparing every steak bomb i eat to Super Sub on Cabot Street in Beverly.

          1. A favorite topic of mine. Some of my favorites that are easy to drive to and park at are:

            Ma Magoo's (Fresh Pond)
            Cheddars (also Fresh Pond)
            Boyles (Broadway in Arlington)

              So excited Boyles is 1.5 miles from my house! I know where I am going this evening for dinner!

                I love Boyles! But everyone's tastes are different, especially when it comes to important topics like Steak and Cheese. Please let us know what you think.
