Oh and Chris, next time you make that trek from rside to mayport, lemme know... I'd like to try that place.

Hey no prob, will do!

And David is spot-on, we need something like that in R'side. I think it'd be packed all the time.

Miami Subs had good cheesesteakes but they closed long time ago.

Old thread but I'll add my .02 cents.

I grew up in Norristown (about 20 miles outside of Center City Philadelphia). Back there, we had Pudge's in Blue Bell. Awesome steaks.

Down here, closest I could find was a chain called the Philly Connection. Apparently there used to be a lot of them around here but there were only 2 up until recently when the one on Beach and St. John's Bluff closed. Now there is just the one down in Orange Park. There is a place up at River City called AD Buffalo or something that actually has the words "Best Philly Cheesesteak N Town" (I have no idea why they felt the need to exclude the 'I' from the word "IN"). Well, they are about as far from the best as I've ever tried. You have one option for cheese, provolone. That's it. What a joke.

That being said, I've checked out Philly's Finest and it's really good. Their soft drinks taste funny though for some reason. Probably from a gun behind the bar. That always makes it taste funny. But now that Philly Connection has closed (it was right around the corner from my work) I'm on a mission to find the best one. I'll let you know what I find out.

Bongiorno's Philly Steak Shop out Mayport is permanently closed. Man this sucks, the best authentic cheesesteak in Duval (and damn good pizza) is now gone, thanks to the CCP virus! RIP Bongiorno's  :'(

I thought Biongiornos was good but there are lots of better options in my opinion.  Surfwiches, Sub Cultured, and Eddis In Sons (Recently transitioned from food truck to brick and mortar off Bowden) are all great choices.

Subcultured off Mayport Rd is good, as is the Korean Philly served at Khloes Kitchen food truck (usually set up shop at FSCJ Kent Campus).

Definitely recommend Eddis and Sons, who have parked their food truck and are now in a brick and mortar location off Bowden Rd in the same strip mall as Mr Taco and Shut Em Down (who serves some great fried chicken in their own right).

^That strip has always had some solid food options.  I loved Hunt Club and Flip Flops back in the day.  Watched most of the World Cup on my "lunch break" at Mr Taco.
