This place is nice to be around. there isn't too much in the way that distracts you from enjoying a nice cheese steak.

Prices have creeped up, almost better to go to the Melrose, but if you are on the way to the sports complex it would be worth a stop here (depending on the line, the service has slowed down as well). You can't call ahead (forget about

As a child, I made a number of trips from New York to Philadelphia to visit my relatives. For some odd reason, we only ate the usual fare that you can find in pretty much any big, American city. I never ate an authentic Philly Cheese

I came up to Philly from Baltimore to visit friends. We saw Tony Luke's on Man vs Food, and decided to go there for dinner. I could get over that it was in a weird, dis-invested area, but the food was the most disappointing factor. I ordered a cheesesteak, but you would have thought I had ordered beef wellington for how long it took. Then when I got it, it was the most tasteless, ordinary sandwich imaginable. I've had better at Subway! I guess a little fame has gone to their heads, and now they are trying to get by on the name. Too bad...

Pros: plenty of parking

Cons: mediocre food, slow service

.

I went to Tony Luke's because a friend of mine said it was the best cheese steak in Philly contrary to the reviews on City Search. I wasn't surprised, my friend has no concept of what good food is and the reviews didn't lie.

While placing the order I asked the guy at the counter to explain what "Broccoli Rabe" was. He looked at me dumb founded and said "its a bitter sauce". Only after I got home I found out its just a type of Broccoli. Good job knowing what you are serving.

Then it took 35 minutes to get the cheese steak, preceded by a 35 minute wait in line to even place the order. I had my cheese steak with onions and sharp provolone, I didnt ask for something out of the ordinary so I dont know why it took so long.

Finally after getting the cheese steak I open it up and immediately ask, wheres the cheese. Turns out the cheese, which there wasnt much off had embedded itself into the top half of the hero. There might as well as have been no cheese, I couldnt even taste it. On top of that the bread was cold.

The meat itself was flavorless, luke warm, and lacked any aroma. The onions looked like they have been sitting for a while and lacked flavor as well. The mushrooms in the other cheese steak were from a can, not fresh.

If it wasnt for being really really cheap I would have been royally pi$$ed.

Tip: Save yourself the time and effort and just get a cheese steak somewhere else, preferably not at any of the hyped up tourist traps like Pats and Genos(Friends went, also said it wasnt good) or Tony Luke's.

This review should be soley for Tony Luke's Roast Pork Italiano (pork, broccoli rabe, sharp provolone), since that has been the only sandwitch I've purchased for myself since I first tried it after they first opened. I've headed there with the intention of getting a steak or roast beef, but I cannot bring myself to do it. The Roast Pork Italiano is that unbelievably awesome. Few sandwitches compare.

If you want a taste of Philadelphia - this is the place to go! Tony Luke takes care of his customers by over stuffing the sandwiches with meat! I am particularly partial to the roast pork sandwiches!

Tony Lukes has the best cheese steaks in Philadelphia. Pat's and Geno's comes in a very close second but Tony Luke's is my favorite. Whenever we have out of town guests this is one of the must do places.

Visited on 6/01/08 and found the food and service measured up to the reputation earned. We each had the famous roast pork and seasoned fries.

Watch the servers: We left a five dollar tip for a twenty-four dollor bill ,cash. We elected to put the meal itself on our credit card. Upon checking our card balance the next morning we found the server had charged us an additional twenty percent on the recipt she submitted. Our reciept clearly shows the total for the meal only. We expressly informed her we had left a cash tip before we left.

their cheesteaks used to be divine, but now they are like everyone else's. you pay way too much money for a steak because they can barely spare the cheese. if you dont mind a steak with hardly any cheese than eat here

Tony Luke knows ingredients and how to make them come together to please the palate and satisfy the appetite. I would definitely return and bring back friends. It is that kind of place.

Tony Luke's is a Philly tradition. If you're looking for a cheesesteak or a chicken parm sub, this is the place to go before a Flyers, Phillies or Sixers game. And now they're even open on Sundays before Eagles games! But if you're looking for the absolute best roast pork sandwich on the planet, then Tony Luke's is the place to go. The roast pork Italian comes with either broccoli rabe or spinach rabe and SHARP provolone cheese. Without hesitation I can honestly say this is the single best sandwich I've ever tasted. The pork has a delicious spice, the rolls are cooked on-site, the broccoli rabe has a nice zing to it and the cheese is melted heaven. Honestly, if you're a Philly guy, you know this place. If you're not and happen to be in Philly, do yourself a favor and head to Tony Luke's. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

PS: They also serve breakfast! The scrapple, egg and cheese on a hoagie roll is insane. If I still lived in Philly, I'd weigh 300 pounds from eating here every day - LOL!

Tony Luke's has AMAZING sadwiches. It doesn't matter what kind of food you get, its going to be delicious. The line can get long, especially when there is a game in the city.

Pros: 95 IS RIGHT THERE FOR A QUICK GETAWAY, RUN, RUN FAST.DO NOT RETURN.

Cons: SIDEWALK SEATING AREA SMELLS LIKE CITY HALL STOP OF THE BROAD ST. LINE.URINE

My one time in Philadelphia rather than passing thru the airport, thought I'd try "the best cheesesteak in town", according to the ratings and peoples comments. Tony Luke's was a BIG disappointment. Bland meat and skimpy portions, almost no cheese and unremarkable bread. We tried two different types to compare; one with whiz and one with sharp but both had almost no flavor unless you added the hot peppers or hot sauce. The onion rings were OK but greasy, slightly undercooked and nothing special. (I added mine to the sandwich to boost the taste.) Next time I'm in town I'll try some place else.

Pros: Good for people watching

Cons: Parking, long lines

.

People can argue who's got the best cheesesteaks for hours. It's all a matter of taste. MY taste says Tony Lukes is the best around. When the wintry winds stop blowing and the Phillies start playing we always stop at Tony Lukes on our way to the game. Yes, there's one at the stadium but it has proven inconsistant. Some days great; some days not so great. We're never disappointed on Oregon Ave.

I don't leave a trip to Philly without bringing some Tony's hoagies home with me. It isn't tucked across the street from the Liberty Bell and might not be a tourist's dream of an ideal Philadelphia, but South Philly has its own character and pride, and you'll find a rich cross-section of that at Tony's. They make the bread on-site, and the cheesesteaks and hoagies they build on the bread are nothing short of outstanding. I've not tried the signature pork sandwich with broccoli rabe, but you can bet I will on my next trip.

Besides being overpriced and over crowded Tony Luke's food is terrible! If you are in South Philly then there are plenty of choices that would serve you better and be more pleasant as they take your money. The only conclusion I have to it's popularity is it's location. The steak is rough and overcooked, and dare I say fatty and the roast pork is dry. For those of you raving about chicken cutlets...here's a little secret, the pre battered frozen chicken that you are eating isn't that hard to cook....save a few bucks and keep on driving.

This is the place to grab a sandwich...

they are famous for their cheese steak sandwiches
but in my opinion their italian chicken cutlet with broccoli rabe is divine.

For under 20.00 two people can have sandwiches and drinks and feel sated.

Atmosphere... definitely needs work but the food certainly
surpasses any expectation.

Everyone has their favorite, but to me Tony Luke's makes the best sandwiches in the city. Their variety is huge and all the food is great, from cheesesteaks to roast pork to chicken cutlets to meatballs. They also have awesome breakfast sandwiches. Their pepper and egg is the best I have ever had. The tourists can have Pat's, Geno's and Jim's. After trying them all, I'll take Tony Luke's anyday.

I think they have the best cheesesteak in Philly period. Hands down no questions ask. And...if your not in the mood for cheesesteak, there are other things u can pick up (roast pork, beef, cutlets, hamburgers). Their hamburgers (Royal Double) are huge...but it's just ok tho. U can't really beat the price. Service is fast considering all ppl ordering.

I had to see what all the hype was about. I've been working in Philadelphia for a little over a month, and Tony Luke's is the best Philly Cheesesteak I've had. As a boy from the gentle south, I have to say I enjoyed the no-nonsense atmosphere. The staff was impatient, but very efficient. The place is about good, big and inexpensive sandwiches, and the Philly experience was worth the lines.

It's actually worth trekking down to Front & Oregon every once in awhile for this local legend, and that's saying something.

Tony Luke's steaks are, though probably not the very best in Philly, quite good and almost worth their reputation. They are huge, the meat is tender, and the toppings are crisp and tasty. I also have to say that, while far from an original idea, the autographed photos of celebrities seem to fit the place.

The downsides are the invariably long line, the somewhat curt service, and the location way out of the way.

Simply the best pizza steak in the area. Add roasted hot peppers and sharp provolone and you're in heaven. Nice tender juicy pork sandwiches too. Unfortunately, the pork sandwiches have been a little light lately. Hey T.L., better to raise the price slightly than to skimp on the meat!

The Pork Italian (with sharp provolone) is possibly one of the best flavors I've ever bitten into. One of my friends told me how good this was and I thought he had to be exagerating. My wife went to Casa di Pasta, heard people talking about the Pork sandwich, walked over and brought me home one. With the first bite, I was a believer. Unfortunetly for me, another one of my buddies was there, drooling over my sandwich. I cut him off a bite, out the door and down 95 he went to get his own. I have yet to wait in the incredibly long line at Citizens Bank Park, but I will always get a sandwich either pre or post game. I'd love to try the cutlet or cheese steak, but I can't bring myself to order anything other than the Pork.

We visit Philly on a regular basis. It is a great town to explore with alot of attractions. Tony Luke's is a definite stop for anyone visiting. The lines can be long at times but the wait is more than worth it. A very reasonable price selection for those on a tight budget. They dont skimp on the portions as alot of other places do. The service was friendly, efficient and the atmosphere truly enjoyable. I brought my dad along for his first visit and he was truly overwhelmed at the amount of food you get for your money. While parking is limited and those not familiar with downtown may find it hard to get to, it is a definite stop for those on a tight budget and very hungry while in the city. For 3 adults, it costs us under $20 to leave full and satisfied. Great Job Tony!!

I'v only been to Tony Lukes 2 times in my life.
I was born and raised on Pat's steaks.
In all of my years, i feel that pats's and geno's have gone down hill and if I know of anyone coming in from out of town and has never had a Philly cheesesteak, I' going to recomend them to go to Tony Lukes.I think they are #1 in Philly.

Best cheeze steaks in Philly. That says a lot. Outdoors which is great in good weather. Only recommended for diehards in the Winter. Located on Oregon Ave near the Walt Whitman bridge and Delaware now Colombus Blvd.

Cons: Always a line, Cold in the Winter

Okay, maybe it's not exactly good for you, but it sure feels like it. Tony Luke's cuts of beef just seem leaner and less greasy than the ones that some of the other big cheesesteak joints use. Plus, the other ingredients from the rolls to the onions are always really fresh. The result is a cheesesteak that tastes great, but never feels heavy or oily. Worth the long lines. But one complaint -- how about opening up on Sundays? At least during Eagles season?

The new ballparks need to include these awsome cheessteaks into the plans. After traveling to various ballparks I found I wanted the food the city was famous for. People coming to Philly want cheesesteaks and Tony Luke's are best!

The proximity of Tony Luke's to the ballparks lifts the eatery above the rest. Stopping there to grease up the engine after a long game could sure put a smile on anyone's face.
