Not all whats its cracked up to be!

Ok heard about this place called Carl's not to far from my job saying it was the best place, was on the Phantom Gourmet, waited forever to pick it up and I was not impressed! I've can name tons of places that are much better! Quantity does not mean Quality.

Good, but not as great as the fanbois say.

Obviously Jpal can't write a review without resorting to personal attacks. While I wouldn't say Carl's Steak Subs are bad, I think the Phantom Gourmet was a bit generous in calling them better than the steak subs in Philly. I will say that the rolls could be better (I prefer mine toasted) and service could be better. There's certainly quantity here (their signature subs will also pack sausage, pepperoni, ham, on top of the steak) but I'd say that the quality could be a little better.

By the way, you can find their website at thecheesesteakguys (dot) com.

Best steak subs, period.

Don't listen to the girly-men, hurlbutt and spookini, who are afraid of eating anything with meat. These women probably eat salads all day. For real men, Carl's is definitely the place to go. If you want awesome, hearty, rib-sticking subs, then go to Carl's. If not, you can hang out with hurlbutt and spookini at the Rainforest Cafe.

The Phantom Gourmet needs to get a life --

Hmm, I heard about this place on TV -- the ""Phantom Gourmet"" had listed it as a 'hidden gem'. I went in w/ greate expectations. And.....nothing. Nothing really to rave about, at all. If this is Boston's best cheesesteak, we are in serious, serious trouble!! Go to Carl's if you are driving by and are curious, hungry, bored, and can't think of anywhere else.

Quantity over quality

Their slogan should be ""Crap and lots of it!""

It amazes me how many food lunkheads prefer this type of garbage just because they get a pile of ""meat"" on their sub. I mean really, what type of human being really needs to eat a sandwich with ham, pepperoni, sausage, bacon, and barbacue sauce on it?

And how knows where the steak comes from?? I once had a turkey sub from here where the meat was positively from another century it was so sweaty.

Do your digestive tract a favor and stay very far away from this gastric nightmare.

Best Subs and Best Carry-Out Food in Boston!!!

This place is fantastic! Definately the best subs I have ever had - great flavor and quality ingredients. Whether you want a standard steak sub, a great chicken sub, or an eclectic combination, this place is great at everything it makes! I've had sandwhiches and burritos here with recipe combinations unlike anything I've had any place else. The large subs are about the size of your arm and great for leftovers. The burritos are good too, but the subs are my personal favorite. My husband, who always prefers pizza, now says ""why eat pizza when we can go to Carl's!""

-This is a carry-out only place
