The Cuban sandwich has been the top seller at Sharky’s Grill for 15 years running. Sharky’s makes each sandwich as it is ordered using marinated pork loin, Black Forest ham, dill pickle, Swiss or pepper-jack cheese on long bread with mustard, mayo or chipotle. Sharky’s charbroiled cheeseburgers are almost as popular. Our fave: the smoked brisket with melted cheddar and barbecue sauce.
The scene at Sharky’s Grill repeats itself every summer: scores of hot and hungry beachgoers packed into Sharky’s covered deck, dogs by their sides, waiting for some scraps and a line that winds through the tables. Sounds maddening, but the sandwiches—especially the Cuban, the slow-cooked pork loin, the Texas-style brisket and a variety of breakfast treats—are worth it.
