Review: Domino's - Oven Baked Philly Cheesesteak

Domino's Oven Baked Philly Cheesesteak sandwich features slices of steak, American and provolone cheeses, fresh onions, fresh green peppers, and fresh mushrooms on artisan bread, baked in their pizza ovens.

I picked one up for $5.99.

The sandwich is about 8" long and feels a little on the small side for the price.

The bread was ciabatta-ish, with an airy crumb and a nice, crackly, toasted crust. I like it because it was warm and toasty, but I'd prefer a soft Amoroso's for a cheesesteak.

There's not too much in the way of steak to go around. Although what little there was had a nice flavor to it and was tender enough. Still, cheesesteaks usually have an abundance of steak (and cheese).

There was a decent amount of well-melted cheese with a good flavor to it.

The vegetables were just slightly cooked and were relatively flavorful.

Overall, Domino's Philly Chesesteak is an okay option if you don't have access to a decent cheesesteak shop but Philly Cheesesteak aficionados are sure to be disappointed, as beyond the general fillings, Domino's Philly Cheesesteak is just a vague nod towards the real thing.
