How does the ballpark version compare to the sandwich at the actual Tony Lukes?
I'm down at CBP quite a bit but always go with a Schmitter, Crab Fries or the ol' stand by of a hot dog.
As fo rme I love Cheesesteaks and have been to quite a few places throughout the city but lately my wife and I have been making the hour drive to Tony Luke's for the Roast Pork. I think it may have the edge over the Cheesesteak.
I wish I could answer your question, but it's been a fairly long time since I've had any kind of sandwich from Tony Luke's at any location other than the stadium, and my other experiences were at Tony Luke Jr.'s in Center City.
To answer the question from the other post, as far as sharing; no ... we each just stuck with our own sandwich (but as I mentioned in an earlier post, I prefer a good cheesesteak to a roast pork sandwich). There have been times when I didn't feel like waiting in the cheesesteak/roast pork line and went to Planet Hoagie for a grilled chicken Italian with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe on a good hoagie roll. The line there is usually less than half as long as Tony Luke's, which is the next stand over. For something decent with an even shorter line, there are Hatfield grill stands around the stadium that sell pretty good grilled jumbo hot dogs and sausage on a cheesesteak-style roll with grilled onions and peppers.
I haven't tried the Campo's stand at the ballpark yet, but I'd say I like the Tony Luke's cheesesteak from the stadium more than Campo's from their Old City location.
My two favorite cheesesteak places among those I've tried are Steve's Prince of Steaks and D'Alessandro's.
