About Tony Luke’s

Tony Luke's is an award-winning sandwich shop from South Philadelphia that has been around since 1992. What started as a small family owned business has now grown into an international franchise. We have a unique concept that easily stands out among the rest!

More than just your typical Philadelphia cheesesteak joint, Tony Luke’s redefined the Philly sandwich experience with specialty favorites like the roast pork Italian and chicken cutlet. The cheesesteak was not on the menu originally; the city’s love for cheesesteak prompted the Luke’s to make their own version which has stayed a best seller since the addition to the menu in mid 1992. Tony Luke’s menu now includes chicken cheesesteaks, seasoned french fries, hamburgers and more.

Tony Luke’s works directly with cattle farms in the Midwest which supplies the stores with top quality ribeye steak. All meat products are all-natural, antibiotic and hormone free. The vegetables used in toppings are grown in Southern New Jersey and prepared in the Luke family’s commissary in Philadelphia. Sandwiches are served on Liscio’s rolls, which are baked in store every day. Each sandwich and food item is cooked to order.
