March 3, 2016

Sandwiches are a beach day staple for just about everyone. With hundreds of options around Myrtle Beach, it's tough to narrow down the selections. We surveyed thousands of people in the first-ever Myrtle Beach Awards (AKA The Beachies) at the end of last year and dozens of restaurants were mentioned. The list includes everything from top brand name delis to great local spots to discover on your next beach vacation.

Here are the voters' Top 10 favorite places to get a sandwich along the Grand Strand.

Dagwood's Deli

Dagwood’s Deli has two convenient Myrtle Beach locations- perfect for a quick lunch break from the beach or hang around to watch the big game. There are over three dozen sandwiches and wraps featured on the menu and their bread and rolls are baked fresh daily. Take your pick from Philly cheesesteaks with shrimp, chicken, veggies or traditional pure beef or specialty subs like the Southwestern chicken or Dagwood’s Dipper. Local tip – Be sure to stop in on Wednesdays at the Myrtle Beach location for free cookie day.

Cheesesteak Factory serves up some of the best Philly cheesesteaks in the area.
