Philadelphia, PA - Philadelphia's Steve’s Prince of Steaks and Amoroso’s Bakery broke the record for the world’s largest cheesesteak, with their 480 feet long cheesesteak. Their cheesesteak broke the previous record of 426 feet, which was set in 2011 by Frankie and Deb Santos in Tucson, Ariz. The event will take place at Lincoln financial field during Philly's first-ever festival honoring the famed sandwich.
Philadelphia Breaks World’s Largest Cheesesteak Record, the record was previously held by Tucson, AZ, Frankies South Philly Cheesesteaks and Acacia Real Food & Cocktails who combined efforts on April 2011 to create a 426-foot Philly Cheesesteak at the University of Arizona Mall.
To beat the Tucson record Philly had to top the 400 lbs of meat, onions, and seasoning were grilled up before placing it on the specially baked 426-foot roll. And finally, 100 lbs for Cheez Whiz was placed on top of the massive sandwich to complete the world record.
