Ace's Steaks & Hoagies (Trappe) - Cheesesteak

Appearance is of a 12" roll that is jammed with some well cooked steak. The roll stays open due to the good looking meat stuffed inside with scattered onions, and cheese. - 4

The roll is of a nice looking steak roll with a soft texture. I'm not sure who the baker is but if I had to guess, I'd say it was Conshohocken based on the way the roll forms to the hand and doesn't fall apart. - 4

The meat is terrific. It's cooked well and there is light seasoning with mild oily juiciness retained well throughout the chopped steak. As good as it is, it's hard to measure up to the bar that's set by Pudge's with the overflowing, awesomely cooked steak. This is great but I'd take a Pudge's over this...and there seems to be some connection according to this link. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/430752?tag=highlight-3720782;post-content-3720782#3720782
If this is the same Altieri steak that Pudge's uses, it's seasoned slightly differently and you dont get quite as much in the Conshy roll. - 4

The cheese is melted throughout the steak and onions. Decent amount to flow throughout the steak and let the flavors run. - 4

Overall, this is a very nice sandwich, which I would order again and put into the regular rotation. Very nice flavors and is a great find for the Collegeville/Trappe area. - 4

Total Score: 4/5
