Tony Luke's

39 East Oregon Avenue, Philadelphia, PA - (215) 551-5725
Posted By Tom Davis on 10/4/2005 8:17:00 PM
We had our Tony Luke's cheese steaks at Citizen's Bank Ball Park (where the Phillies play baseball). Just fantastic! The steak is substantial in texture; not chipped paper thin but shaved into a few larger, succulant slices. And talk about juicy, tender and flavorful! The roll was chewy on the outside, soft on the inside. And this is the ball park version. I'm sure that the quality was right up there with the original location. This is Philly food at its finest. These cheese steaks are absolutely gourmet.

Vegetarians can eat as well as meat-eaters at Tony Luke's.  This sandwich is called an Uncle Mike.  All well-cooked vegetables, and it looks like a mess, but it's high-flavored and soulful eating.

Luke's veal cutlet is excellent, and if that's what you crave, you won't be disappointed.  But, for your first visit, you must order a Pork Italian Rabe.

"Some customers park in the middle of the road in front of Tony Luke's, but the "official" parking is a razor-wire rimmed "lot" beneath Interstate 95. At Luke's, this just seems so right."
