I am going to examine the best “sammiches” in the Montgomery County. As a sammich connoisseur (and no, I will never call it a sandwich), I know there are many different varieties of sammiches, which can be very difficult to compare, but if anyone can handle this task, it’s Fat Sam.
Feel Free to suggest sammiches for me if you feel like I am missing out on a hidden gem. I am going to judge these meaty masterpieces on; bread, meat, condiments, toppings, and of course taste. Feel free to follow Fat Sam on his journey down Gluttony lane.

Hail to the Ale:
I would be remised to start my journey anywhere but the very heart of the area, at Germantown Pike and Joshua road, at the home of the famous hot roast beef sandwich, the Ye Old Ale House. The roast beef at the Ale House is not just a sammich, it’s an experience. If you sit at the bar at just the right time, you will catch the crew bringing in a hot new roast beef. You can watch the au jus drip down as they slice the meaty goodness and place it on the Kaiser.
From the first bite this juicy masterpiece will steal your heart. Add a side of fries or some appetizers, and wash it down with one of the seasonal beers on tap, and your meal is complete. Great atmosphere and just enough TV’s to catch the big game anywhere you sit. The Ale House staff will make you feel like you have known them your entire life.
Meat Proportion: Other than just a thin layer of provolone on top, this sammich is all Meat. Meat to the max, not too thin, perfectly sliced, this sammich is meat-tastic!
Bread: Served on a fresh Kaiser roll, thick enough to soak up the au jus, it’s the right fit for such a meaty meal.
Condiments: AUUUU Yeah, Au Jus – Whether you get it on the side for dipping or load it on the top, the magical – fresh off the beef – au jus is a perfect match.
Toppings: toppings? We don’t need no stinkin toppings! A sammich such as this would only be insulted at the notion of putting veggies on top of it, but horseradish, oh yeah, make that happen!
Officially giving this gem 5 out of 5 chomps!! Chris Bass, you have outdone yourself yet again!
Other Ale House Gems: a slightly lesser known secret is the Continental Fries, these fries are cooked perfectly crispy, and loaded with parmesan cheese, and some other magical seasonings get it with the au jus on the side and you will be in for a treat.
Until next time – Don’t eat anything Fat Sam wouldn’t eat!
