Tony Luke's sits under the overpass of I-95 with parking much easier to find than at Pat's or Geno's, and it's better organized for the customer. They treat you like a customer although still in that brusque east coast way.
When you walk into the enclosed sidewalk area, the pungent mildly nauseating vomit funky foot aroma of sharp provolone hits you. That's a reminder that you have to order the pork and in particular the much talked about and hyped Pork Italian with Broccoli Rabe and Sharp Provolone.
One thing is certain because of the after thirst. Tony Luke's uses MSG. It could have been in both sandwiches but I'm leaning toward in the Pork.
The Food Network and Travel Channel shills weren't shilling. Tony Luke's lives up to the hype. Tony Luke's is a must try for the foodie.
