Mugshot’s Grill and Bar
Cheesesteak may not be in the name, but it’s definitely on the menu at Mugshot’s Grill and Bar. Mugshot’s is a Hattiesburg-based restaurant chain known for some of the best burgers in Mississippi. They offer three delicious takes on the cheesesteak, including a “Hillbilly Philly”, a “Hicks Chicken Philly”, and a “Southwest Philly” with rotel and pico de gallo. Avoid the hungry hordes of Southern Miss students and order curbside pick-up or delivery.
Sully’s has always been known for their “legendary” selection of steaks. It’s no surprise, then, that they stick to the standard with their sandwiches.

There’s only one thing better than a Philly cheesesteak: a Philly cheesesteak with an ice-cold libation. Support your local pub and grab a drink to-go to solidify the perfect night in.
