Food Concept: Philly cheese steaks and sandwiches: “sambonis”

These three guys from Philly — Erik, Joe and Chris — want to show the rest of America a real cheese steak sandwich with their food truck, Philly’s Finest Sambonis. After a car accident ruined Erik’s career as an electrician, he decided to follow his dream and cook. Joined by his friends Joe and Chris, the guys want to cook true Philly cheese steaks, which for them means diced beef and gooey American cheese in a hollowed-out roll topped “wit’ or wit’out onions.” Not only that, they want to prove that anything can be turned into a sandwich, which they like to call a “samboni.” Winning a food truck business would mean new careers the guys could count on.

  1. It's always great to follow your dream and do something you have passion for. I am sure Erik will be very successful in his new business because this is what he loves doing!

    Food Network should be ashamed for what they did to Paula Deen

    • Elaine says:

      Paula did it to her self,Food Network was not running her restaurant's.She was informed of the misconduct for years and didn't address it. The women bringing the suit has not been allowed to bring the claim of race problems, because of her race, but she still has a good case for sexual harassment. Bubba is a creep and Paula ignored his misconduct.
