Dairy Cottage (Springfield) - Cheesesteak

Appears a packed, 12" with chopped steak on a nice looking roll.  Bits of fried onion are scattered within the helping of beef. - 4

The roll is a Liscio roll, which I covered in my previous review of Steve's on South Street.  Same wonderful experience of a great roll being made for this type of application.  I could see it doing well with a roast pork sandwich too, holding in all that juicy goodness while retaining the firm outer crust. - 4.5

The meat is finely chopped but juicy.  Mildly seasoned and a decent amount piled in there. - 4

The cheese is ok.  Most of it is stuck underneath the meat and on the interior of the roll.  There is a little bit that is in the the middle but the execution of good cheese blend for balance with the steak could be better. - 3.5

Overall, this is a nice cheesesteak.  It's a good one to seek out if you're in Delaware County, or heading to the Springfield Mall.  It all starts with the choice of a great roll.  The cheese could be laid in there better but this is a fair deal for the cost. - 3.5

Total Score: 3.9/5

FYI - Cash only establishment...and I wasn't given any receipt for my records.
