Cheesesteak

No American sandwich is more iconic than the Philly Cheesesteak. Invented in 1930, the cheesesteak is a sandwich of legendary proportions, steeped in rivalry, controversy and mouth-watering self-indulgence. When Tony Luke Junior opened Tony Luke's in 1992, everyone thought he had no chance to survive against the three kings of cheesesteaks: Pat's, Gino's and Jim's. But in 1994, Tony's steaks were ranked "Best of Philly" by Philadelphia Magazine, thus placing him and his deliciously decadent sandwich atop the coveted Philly Cheesesteak throne. In this episode, Tony Luke Jr.'s having a blowout bash for all of his customers. He doesn't know that Bobby's rolling into town to Throwdown against the Cheesesteak King. Will it be Bobby's sliced sirloin or Tony's aged rib eye that will reign supreme? (Episode: BT0111H)
