Capriottis: "Delicious Cheesesteak Subs in Vegas" Capriotti's Sandwich Shop Tip by aussie79

Capriotti's Sandwich Shop, Las Vegas: 3 reviews and 3 photos



Eight Las Vegas locations

The "Best of Delaware" cheesesteak awards plastered on the walls of these terrific submarine sandwich shops were not awarded randomly. Capriotti's makes a topnotch cheesesteak, and it is no accident that you often queue up to order one.

The meat is thinly sliced according to the owner's specifications, then grilled to order. Onions and peppers are optional, as they are in most of the top Philly establishments. The rolls are firm and chewy, baked fresh daily by a local bakery. The Capriottis, who moved here from Delaware, have tried scrupulously to reproduce their favorite sandwich here. The result is the best cheesesteak in the city, a generous, meaty, messy sandwich.

This isn't what you'd call a cheesy version. The "Cheese Whiz" option isn't offered, so you can have either provolone or American, both of which are nicely melted into the roll by the hot, juicy meat. A 9-incher, plenty for the average appetite, is $6, and 50 cents extra gets you fresh grilled mushrooms, an option which seems unreasonably indulgent, given how big and filling these sandwiches are.

Favorite Dish: I usually get the cheesesteak with mushrooms and greenpeppers. It's absolutely delicious and it never fails when I'm eating my sub, my family members want a "bite"
