Cheesesteak, Tony Luke’s

Cheesesteak, Tony Luke’s

Everyone agrees that the cheesesteak, invented by Pat Olivieri in 1930, requires thinly sliced beef and a crusty roll, but the choice between provolone, American and Cheez Whiz is a matter of great debate, as is the best place to eat the famed sandwich. Pictured here is a provolone cheesesteak from Tony Luke’s in South Philly.
