Short summary

"Cheesesteak City" paints a portrait of a passionate, complex, and changing Philadelphia through the stories of its most famous sandwich, the cheesesteak, and the intense personalities which have made the two synonymous. The documentary aims not to simply answer the question of what makes this sandwich so good, but rather what makes this "underdog city" so hungry.
