Ardmore Pizza (Ardmore) - Cheesesteak

Appears a 12" long roll that's been toasted.  The beef is finely chopped and interlaced with onions. - 2.5

The roll is an Amoroso brand roll.  The soft interior is just ok.  Too many other good options out there.  To make matters worse, they throw this through the oven like a grinder.  Not sure what all that's about. - 2.5

The meat is finely chopped.  There is a light oil presence that isn't too bad.  The steak stays moist and flavorful with just a touch of spicing. - 3

The cheese is stuck to the interior of the roll.  Appears to be mostly unmelted, unfortunately.  Enough cheese but the unmelted portions fall short of the ideal steak and cheese sandwich. - 2

Overall, this was ok.  I know it's on a bunch of people's short list of favorite cheesesteak places.  On the plus side, the service is extremely fast and the staff is friendly.  The product just needs some major tweaking to become a player among the big league boys in the Philly area. - 2.5

Total Score: 2.5/5
