About Tony Luke's
The Real Taste of South Philly
On February 3rd 1992, Tony Luke and his two sons opened up a small sandwich shop in South Philadelphia. It was not easy—business started slow and the family struggled to keep doors open. But they never gave up on their dream. When Tony Luke’s won Best of Philly for their cheesesteak and roast pork in 1994, the crowds started rolling in. Now they’re not only a Philly icon, but an international brand as well. The shop has come a long way, but Tony Luke Jr. is certain that one thing has not changed—“We still have that little South Philly neighborhood mentality and we still appreciate every single customer."
We're not the only ones who love them!
Tony Luke’s has been featured in GQ Magazine, Gourmet Magazine, The New York Times and is a member of Philly Mag’s Hall of Fame. The shop also appeared on episodes of Throwdown! With Bobby Flay, Man v. Food and Food Wars. Bon Appetit named Tony Luke's the #1 Cheesesteak in Philly.
