Cheesesteak Review #27: Bridgeport Pizza of Bridgeport
3.5 out of 5 stars
I apologize for the lack of updates, but I am getting ready to do a whole bunch of reviews over the next few weeks. For my latest review I stuck to trying cheesesteaks from my current home town, which is Bridgeport, Pennsylvania. I have already tried a few places in Bridgeport, and I haven’t been to impressed with the quality of cheesesteaks, but I finally found a good one. Recently I visited Bridgeport Pizza and I had the usual of a cheesesteak with Provolone and fried onions.
Bread-I wasn’t all that impresses with their bread. It was a little stale, and it was also very tough. I did try their sandwich pretty late at night, so I can’t fault them completely. I am sure if I ate the cheesesteak a little bit earlier in the day the bread would have been better, so I am not going to dock them too many points for the bread.
Cheese-The Provolone they included was very tasty and there was a ton of it. It was melted throughout the sandwich, which is what I love. Compared to the amount of meat I consider the amount of cheese very generous. The only downside to the cheeses is that there was a lot of it that came off on the wax paper, or whatever it was, that they wrapped the cheesesteak in.
Meat-The meat was very tasty, and it was very tender. There were some pieces cooked too much which were dried out, but that was only the case for a few pieces that we on the ends. Other than that the meat was very good. It was decent quality meat, but it was no-where near spectacular. I didn’t have any fat or gristly pieces, so that is always a plus. Parts of the sandwich did get a little greasy from the meat, but the roll did a good job of absorbing it.
Amount-It was your typical cheesesteak on a 10 inch roll. It was pretty filling. A little more meat would have been better, but I can’t complain. Most normal people would think that it was more than sufficient in the size-wise.
Fried Onions-I can’t talk too much about the friend onions as there were not many included. The only fried onions included were placed on top of the sandwich as compared to mix throughout the whole thing. I guess what was there was alright, but with a little more onion their overall score could have been a little bit higher.
Overall this cheesesteak was above average. So far the Bridgeport Pizza cheesesteak has been my favorite out of all of the places I have tried so far in Bridgeport. There are only a few places left to review, and it’s going to take something amazing to beat the score I have given to Bridgeport Pizza. So for now if you are in the Borough of Bridgeport, stop by Bridgeport Pizza located on the corner of 4th and Depot Street and I don’t think you will be disappointed. If you are in he mood for wings I would always recommend placing an order for them as well. Their sauce is one of the best sauces I have had in a few months.
