Italian Stallion Challenge
Way South Philly hosts Philly cheesesteak eating contest
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.
