    Drove past on Saturday, looked pretty crowded, think it was the first day open.
    They are in a little white building next to Angeloni's on Rt.33.
    I'm psyched because although they are famous for the pork sandwiches, they have a good variety of chicken cutlet and veggie options too (loves me the cutlet w/prov and broccoli rabe).

      Went right after Christmas. I had the Italian pork sandwich with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe - awesome! My daughter had a cheesesteak with sweet peppers and wiz. The bread is perfect! Much closer to me than Philly!

            I went last week and had my first ever Tony Luke's Italian Pork. Awesome sandwich. I really want to try a cheesesteak next time, but the Italian Pork was so good it will be hard not to order it again. Great addition to the area.

              We went for a late lunch on Saturday and I'll 2nd (& 3rd!) all the praise. We had the cheesesteak wit wiz, one wit prov and orders of the wiz fries and o-rings. Steaks were very good, bread was the best - fresh and chewy and the rings were thick cuts of sweet onions. Will have to try the pork sandwich next time.

              Heads up for prime lunch hours - the parking lot is tight with no onstreet alternatives. Could probably park next door at Angeloni's. Small sit down dining area. Call ahead for takeout to avoid the lines/wait. Location is right after Haldeman Ford.

                I was working nearby this morning and stopped in at lunch for the pork sandwich. Excellent. Delicious, crusty bread and a little spice in the pork. They had 9 people working behind the counter. I was out with my sandwich 10 minutes after entering the store.

                  Bread is nice...on the outside it looks like a portuguese roll, but it isn't as dense and the crust is thin, but crispy. Holds up well to moisture inside sandwich.
                  I've had the chicken cutlet italian (broccoli rabe, sharp provolone) and chicken steak with provolone. Both very good, all white meat chicken. I give the nod to the chicken steak, which had chunks of chicken, not as salty. Hubby had steak with broccoli rabe/provolone and said it was very good, meat had good flavor. Fries are thin cut, good if you get them hot when eating in (take out tends to be cold). Sandwiches are around $7.

                      I think so. I drove by on a Saturday. Looked vacant with cardboard boxes in the windows... I never did get a chance to try it :(

                          They started out great (cheese steak and pork brocc rabe sandwiches) but myself and others noticed the quality of the sandwiches go downhill on subsequent visits.

                            Worth the short trip to the original TL in Philly for sure...theres a line around the block for a reason!
