Hero, Hoagies, Grinders, Cheesesteaks?

TorontoTips | Apr 18, 2012 10:25 AM

Toronto does a lot of low-brow take-out foods quite well, from char-dogs to T.O. style burritos, to Banh-Mi, to Doubles to Samosas to Shawarma to Gyros to Chinese BBQ, etc.

BUT, I have yet to find places here in T.O. that really do great Heroes, Hoagies, Grinders, or Cheesesteaks!

I've been spoiled in my travels to enjoy a Chicago Beef with giardinere, and Kelly's Boston Beef, NY Italian Heroes and Meatball Grinders, plus Philly Roast Pork & Rapini, and cheesesteaks.

Yes I've enjoyed sandwiches at Stockyards and Buster Rhino's, etc., but I'm really looking for the real-deal decadent long-roll that's light, yet crusty and loaded with italian cold-cuts lettuce tomato and oil& vinegar, or maybe toasted and a little crunchy with tender meatballs and sharp provolone, or freshly griddled prime-rib with onions and melted cheese - the real deal!

So help me out, have I missed them or do we really not have them? Do I really have to open my own shop to bring hoagies & grinders to Toronto? :-)
