About Sandwiches
In South Florida, the Cuban sandwich is typically a Roast pork, ham and sometimes Salami on pressed Cuban bread.
An Italian sub, Italian combo, or Italian hoagie consists of Italian luncheon meats, typically Capicola, Prosciutto, and Genoa Salami, with Provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, oil, and vinegar. Thinly sliced Pepperoni and Bologna are sometimes added, and less expensive Ham is often substituted for Capicola and Prosciutto. Subway refers to its Italian sub as a B.M.T.

A cheesesteak or steak and cheese is grilled sliced steak with melted cheese on a submarine roll. Common local variations include grilled onions, peppers, lettuce, tomato, and sometimes mayonnaise. The cheese is usually American, cheddar, provolone, or Cheez Whiz. Cheesesteaks are strongly associated with the Philadelphia area, while "steak and cheese" is more often heard elsewhere.

Submarine sandwiches are sold by delicatessens and a number of fast-food restaurants and chains, including Jersey Mike's Subs, D' Angelo Sandwich Shop, Subway, Quizno's, Mr. Sub, Blimpie, Port of Subs, Sub Shop and Schlotzsky's.
