Burtons is the best. It's not traditional but that's why it's so special. It has a delicious dipping sauce and great bread too. When I want traditional, I tend to go to D'Angelos for a number 9, but I'd love to try Carl's. I'm still mourning the closing of Philadelphia Steak and Hoagie. Hungry now...why did I get started?

T. Anthony's at Commonwealth and Babcock near Nickerson Field. It's been a while since I was there, but their steak was like steak chunks - not just shredded beef. And they baked it for a few minutes to melt the cheese into the steak.

Carl's in Waltham is in its own league.
Much larger than the others, and top quality.
This discussion should be about who gets second place.

T.C Lando's is horrible it's huge but the steak so fatty they actually have to cut it in two sep directions otherwise you'd have to chew for hrs to get it down.

Carls is ok but way overrated by people who don't know what a cheese steak should be. I worked next to that place for years and went twice. It's not even shaved steak, it's pellets that look like squirrel poo.

Most of these places are nowhere near Boston. If you want an amazing steak and cheese visit Stash's pizza in Dorchester. Yum!

Emilio's in Watertown is a good steak and cheese. Liked Moogy's in Brighton when I lived there. Nothing like a Philly cheesesteak though- much better places than Pats and Geno's too.

Where is the best place on the South Shore? I always went to Bob's in Medford. That store is phenomenal. If anyone is in the Medford area, I highly recommend it. Also...kind of hard to find.

Bobs in Medford is crazy. Once I thought I was leaning against a pole but it was a giant provolone pipe.

Steak Bomb from Tony Lenas in Swampscott. Add extra cheese and it's a meal for 2, best I've had

Carl's Subs in Waltham used to have the best/most greasy steak and cheese with hugh portions. I haven't been there in 20+ years (I think my insides are still oily from my last sub), and hear they've changed their recipe, but it's still there.
