Help with a Baltimore favorite - the shrimp cheesesteak

scotdc | Apr 28, 201210:56 AM     17

People of Baltimore, I need your help. Looking around for my upcoming trip to Charm City, I came across something I had never heard of - the shrimp cheesesteak.

I see this on various sandwich shop menus, but I can't find out what it is and there are no pictures anywhere!

Is this a sandwich that has shrimp and only shrimp along with some melted onions and cheese?
Or is this a classic cheesesteak that has beef with some shrimp added onto to it?
Is the shrimp breaded or fried?

Just what the heck is this thing?

And who makes the best one?

Help me please so I don't feel like an ignorant fool when I come to town.

Thanks!
