New Jersey is loaded with places that make some darn good cheesesteak sandwiches. Did you notice I didn’t use the word “BEST” in the title of this article? I asked hundreds of folks where they go in the state of New Jersey to get their favorite cheesesteaks. It really is hard to say who has the best cheesesteaks because it’s subjective.

Some of us like onions, peppers, and plastic liquid cheese. Some of us like just the meat and a few slices of melted Cooper Sharp. Some of us like provolone, and so on and so on. Some of my favorites are on the list, and there’s ONE place in South Jersey that people go wild over.

At some point, I’ll be heading down there to see what the fuss is all about because THIS place got a ton of mentions.

Take a look at the list of places that made the cut.

  • Midway Steak House - : 500 Boardwalk, Seaside Heights, NJ 08751

    Boardwalk food holds a special place in a lot of Jersey hearts. My colleague, Jimmy Steal chose Midway and so did several other folks who’ve been going here for decades.

  • Pat's Pizza -(Home Of The Famous Cheesesteak) - 3103 NJ-88, Point Pleasant, NJ 08742

    It’s been a long time since I’ve hit up Pat’s. It reminds me of my dearly departed friend Kim Demeter who was the first person to tell me about this place when I moved here in the 90’s. According to many others including Terri Apuzzo from Jersey Warriors, this place still makes a great cheesesteak.

    Not just a food truck anymore. Now you can sit down in a restaurant instead of your car to gobble up your delicious cheesesteak served on an artisan-style hot, crunchy pretzel. Thanks to Moe, Lynn, Tabitha, and Jim for giving these guys a shot.

  • Philly Philly Steaks - 1611 NJ-37 East, Toms River, NJ 08753

    After you’re done eating that marvelous cheesesteak with a side of jalapeno poppers, head next door to Rich’s Ice Cream for a sweet treat.

  • Vinnie's Pizza and Subs - 1817 NJ-35, Wall Township, NJ 07719

    I know we’re supposed to be talking about cheesesteaks, but this is the first place I ever had a sub from in New Jersey. It was a sausage parm sub and to this day, it was the best I’ve ever had.  Now on to the cheesesteak…The bread is perfect, they stuff the heck out of it with freshly made cheesesteak and all the toppings your heart desires.

  • Boaggio's Bread - 823 E Gate Dr, Mt Laurel Township, NJ 08054

    John Cohl from the South Jersey Food Scene page says, “My personal favorite cheesesteaks are from Boaggio’s Bread in Mount Laurel.” I headed over to the website and realized that John eats there a lot. There’s a sandwich named for him that is not a cheesesteak, and it looks divine. It’s made on this incredible-looking bread with sesame seeds and on the bread is: Chicken cutlet with mortadella, roasted peppers, and fresh mozzarella, drenched in vodka sauce. Thanks for the heads up, John!

  • Antney's Grub - 2001 Surf Ave, Wildwood, NJ 08260 (Located in the Aruba Hotel)

    Not only do they do a beautiful job with a hearty cheesesteak sandwich, the roast pork, with broccoli rabe, and provolone is one of those things you’d list if you had to choose what your last meal on Earth would be. I’m not speaking from personal experience, I’m relaying info from a group of people who call Antney’s home when they head to Wildwood.

  • Lillo's Tomato Pies - 2503 Marne Hwy, Hainesport, NJ 08036

    Lillo’s was the NUMBER ONE choice across the state to get a phenomenal cheesesteak. Every single person that chose Lillo’s swears there isn’t a better cheesesteak in the Garden State. Who wants to come with me to Lillo’s in a couple of weeks?
