Everywhere you look a version of a Philly cheese steak surrounds you. Most are impostors that don't deserve the space on restaurant menus. As a natural hoagie eater I'm on a life long conquest to find the best cheese steak.
Knowing that I might not step foot in South Jersey this summer, due to potential work and travel plans, I resort to clinging to my memories of great hoagies, especially cheese steaks.
Living in South Jersey, a partial extension of Philly, the past summers growing up have left me with countless cheese steak experiences. You may disagree, but I believe that White House Subs in Atlantic City contends for the title of best subs/hoagies and cheese steaks.
White House Subs in Atlantic City, NJ is famous for its subs. They have existed in the casino rich city since the days Frank Sinatra would fly into town and stop by to grab a sub. When first visiting the shop in the heart of AC you know the hype is real. The small restaurant is packed with eaters eager to take a bite into a monstrous sub. The customers wait in long lines, place their orders, and watch as their subs are assembled in front of them. Don't limit yourself to a cheese steak. I prefer eating half a cheese steak and half of an Italian cold cut sub. They make one of the best Italians out there as well. The halves run about 9 inches long.If you happen to find yourself crawling out of a casino not knowing what time of day it is, but yearning for something to satisfy your hunger and forget about your loses, then walk over to White House Subs.
Have you eaten at the White House Sub Shop? Are you a cheese steak fan?
