Sandwich Shops and Tasty Treats on Long Island
I am forever Chowhounding great lunch spots all over Long Island. Although not everything on every menu is a hit, some places get a few things right. The specials *today*, for example, at Roast Sandwich Shop in Melville include a country fried steak sandwich. I have attached a photo of the specials for today.
The "brioche bun" I've tried on other sandwiches of theirs, is the run-of-the-mill crap "brioche" found in any generic joint, but the sandwich otherwise is a reason to stop by and try.
Old school house made hot hero sandwiches and the like at *My Hero* in North Bellmore is really good (actually Great), but not as intriguing.
Cook's Scratch Kitchen & Bakery in Northport is very good and very out of the way. But worth it for their bacon, scallion, cheese scones.
Are there any other places around that make deliciousness a part of their menu? Inventive and tasty. This ain't Queens or Williamsburg, we know.
A cold cut sandwich is fine, but a hot, *made to order* sandwich is Great!
Thanks Chowhounds! Happy Chowhounding!
I recommended Steer Seller in Ridge on another thread and coll took me up on it, thread here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/967287
Steer Seller is more of a butcher but they do have some lunch specials, and they make their own cold cuts. There's not much in the way of seating other than a few picnic tables outside. Pick up a wheel of their cheese and parsley sausage and grill it up for me while you're at it. I'm up here in Boston and particularly miss their meats when summer grilling season is upon us. John (the owner) is an old family friend.

Yes! I go there for lunch on a regular basis now and also pick up some meat from the butcher area for dinner. So glad you mentioned it, never would have known. Good old fashioned deli counter with home made cuts. The roast beef sandwich is especially sublime, they don't make 'em like that anymore. Except there!
