The Real Taste of South Philly
More than just your typical Philadelphia cheesesteak joint, Tony Luke's redefined the Philly sandwich experience with specialty favorites like the roast pork Italian and chicken cutlet. The cheesesteak was not on the menu originally; the cities love for cheesesteak prompted the Luke's to make their own version which has stayed a best seller since the addition to the menu in mid 1992. Tony Luke's now serves up chicken cheesesteaks, seasoned french fries, hamburgers and Tony Luke's own creation, South Philly Bites.
Tony Luke's works directly with cattle farms in the Midwest which supplies the stores with top quality ribeye steak. All meat products are all-natural, antibiotic and hormone free.

Sandwiches are served on Liscio's rolls, which are baked in store every day. Each sandwich and food item is cooked to order.
