Philadelphia, PA - Amato's Pizza, It was lunchtime, and I found myself in Fairless Hills, PA. My last rider had not eaten a cheesesteak since 1978, so she was no help.I Googled Pizza shops near me. Why pizza shops and not cheesesteaks? When you Google Cheesesteak, you get all the Philadelphia places, so I Google pizza shops.
Amato's Pizza had a 4.7 rating with 660 reviews. I thought that was very impressed, and I did pass a place called the Garden of Eden restaurant, and they had many people sitting outside for lunch.
I will have to keep the Garden of Eden in the memory bank and headed to Amato's Pizza is in the Fairway Plaza, a cute little strip mall with about eight places in it.
The slice pizzas looked terrific, and there are many people getting pizzas today from Amato's, which has a big sitting area, big screen TV, and four tables outside.
It's in a strip mall with plenty of parking, and the right amount of helpful employees that appeared to work very well together and people were being waited on very quickly.
A very nice young man waited on me, and I asked if they have any special Cheesesteaks, and he said yes they do, The Works.
So, I got a Cheesesteak with the works, and at under ten dollars, I like this Cheesesteak. However, the extras, or in this case "The Works," spent more time on the grill with the meat.
Do not get me wrong the extras were lovely big flavorful pieces, but they overpower the rest of the sandwich a little. I think if they had spent more time on the grill with the meat getting to know each other and blending flavors, this would have been a lot better Cheesesteak.
The roll was standard and had a tough time holding everything together for my still pictures. Okay, amount of cheese, but I wish it was melted through the whole Cheesesteak.
