Lou's Too (Trappe) - Cheesesteak

The appearance is of 12" steak roll with medium pieces of chopped steak and onions. The amount looks good with enough steak jammed into the roll. -4



The roll...I tried to see if there was a bakery name on the delivery box but I didn't see any printing. Whatever they are, they are on par with the Conshy rolls that the other steak shops have been using. It's soft with a semi-firm outer crust that gives to the touch. It holds up to the steak, juices, and cheese. - 4

The meat is chopped into small, and medium pieces. It's mildly seasoned but perhaps not seasoned quite enough. While there are some tender pieces, there are also pieces that are a tad overcooked. I've had this sandwich before and I thought it was cooked perfectly. This outing faired differently and the the score will hold until I get different results a few times in a row. - 2.5

The cheese is melted throughout the steak, and onions. It looks like they go with the method of putting half of the steak in one pile, layer with cheese, then place the other half on top of the melting cheese. They then place the open roll on top of the pile to give a nice thourough melting. - 4.5

Overall, this is a decent sandwich. Like I said, I may have caught them on an off day but if I were an out of towner, I would've thought this was slightly better than average. Inconsistent pieces of cooked meat lead to the slight downfall of this steak. The good outweighed the bad but not by a longshot. The roll, and cheese seemed to hold this one together. - 3

Total Score: 3.6/5
