Italian Stallion Challenge

Way South Philly hosts Philly cheesesteak eating contest

Italian Stallion Challenge

Entering Austin's burgeoning trailer food scene is Way South Philly, located at Sixth and Waller. It offers authentic Philly-style cheesesteaks with a Rocky theme and will be celebrating its three-month anniversary this Friday with a Philly cheesesteak eating contest dubbed the Italian Stallion Challenge. Contestants have 36 minutes to finish off a huge roll equivalent to four Balboa cheese­steaks stuffed with the works: steak, peppers, onions, mushrooms, jalapenos, and tots drenched with "The Whiz." The winner will be crowned "The Champ" and, best of all, will get to create and name a steak sandwich and have a portrait on Way South Philly's Wall of Fame. Quite an honor indeed. Fri., July 15, 7pm. Way South Philly, E. Sixth & Waller, 771-6969. Free.
