In fact, the cheesesteak was not on the menu originally. Philadelphia’s love for cheesesteaks prompted the Luke’s to make their own version, which has stayed a bestseller since the addition to the menu in the early 90s. Tony Luke’s menu now includes chicken cheesesteaks, seasoned french fries, hamburgers and more.

Luke Jr. — formally Lucidonio — oversees the franchise. He is a restaurateur, actor, musician, and entertainer. Gourmet Magazine has twice hailed Luke and his restaurants for quality and innovation. Popular television series Throwdown! with Bobby Flay, Dinner: Impossible, Man v. Food, and Food Wars have all featured Luke and his restaurants on various episodes.

Tony Luke’s works with MBB Management, a firm specializing in hospitality management, to run the brand from concept and development to licensing, day-to-day operations and financial accountability. Working alongside MBB, Tony Luke’s has continued to expand through licensing and franchising, with close to 30 locations operating across the Mid-Atlantic and Bahrain.
