Pit beef is a local favorite and the biggest, best sandwich that Baltimore has to offer. For those of you who don’t know, pit beef is no ordinary smoked meat or barbecue. This sandwich is filled with love and personality – just like the people who eat it. A sizable roast is grilled over charcoal, thinly sliced and piled sloppily onto a Kaiser roll. The beef is minimally seasoned and is often served moderately rare. Depending on where you go, the sandwich might be topped with onions, barbecue sauce, cole slaw, horseradish, and mayonnaise (or any combination of these.)
Don’t let your growling stomach deceive you; your eyes are much bigger than your stomach. These sandwiches are HUGE. Don’t expect to look pretty eating this monster. One sandwich has 8 ounces of beef and is served on a massive kaiser roll. At Santoni’s, you get to be creative and add your own toppings. Hungry customers have the option of adding onions, barbecue sauce, mayonnaise, mustard and/or horse radish to the sandwich. For only $8 you get a huge sandwich, a drink and a bag of chips. Pit beef not your thing? We have roasted turkey and ham sandwiches available, too.
