Cheesesteak at Jimmy's NY Pizza in Sterling

Steve | Jun 11, 201711:43 AM     5

Some places just look like they are not going to produce anythting Chow-worthy. Even after all these years of having success at holes-in-the-wall, sometimes there is no promise of a hidden gem.

But thanks to a post on donrockwell.com, I took a chance that there is gold in them thar hills. Jimmy's NY Pizza is about as desolate as it gets. There is no reson to think that someone is baking crusty fresh bread for subs from what seems like a modified pizza dough.

I went for the cheesesteak. and it was about as good as it gets. I avoided the mayo, tomato, and lettuce, and stuck with just the steak, cheese, chopped cherry peppers, and onions. The interior would have been damn good on an average roll, but this was no average roll. It was baked with care, and it looked as good as it tasted. I will be back for other subs. How can you go wrong with bread like that?

My only knock is that there is no choice for cheese. Thsi is a mozzarella-only establishment. I normally prefer obnoxious-tasting American.
