Here's a hot and juicy topic to sink your teeth in: The cheesesteak is No. 2? Funny, the things you stumble across on the Web. "I may never eat another Philly cheesesteak - not, at least, when I can have a roast pork sandwich," a writer opined some weeks ago in the Washington Post. Tim Warren, who lives in Maryland, was such a big cheesesteak fan that he often made food runs to Philadelphia and found he "wasn't the only idiot who had driven 100 miles for a $7 sandwich.

IF YOU gathered all the cheesesteaks the Oliveri family has fried up in this town and laid them end-to-end, they would circle the globe. We don't believe anyone would actually do that. Then again, we wouldn't have believed that an Oliveri legacy would be unceremoniously booted from one of Philadelphia's culinary landmarks, the Reading Terminal Market. His grandfather, Pat Oliveri invented the cheesesteak, according to local lore. But Rick Oliveri's steak shop is about to be kicked out of the market after 15 years to make way for another South Philly sandwich tradition, Tony Luke's.

Back in 2007, when Daryl Hall came up with the idea for his online music show Live From Daryl's House, he was motivated in part by being able to go to work without leaving home. "I've been traveling around the world forever," says Hall, the 65-year-old Pottstown native who, along with John Oates, made up one of the best-selling duos in music history, with No. 1 hits that included "Kiss on My List," "Private Eyes," and "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do). " "But the Internet allows you to turn everything upside down," says Hall, on the phone this week from his house in Dutchess County, N.Y., where Live From Daryl's House is filmed.

DiNic's roast pork - sliced thin with broccoli rabe and extra-sharp provolone on a seeded Carangi's roll - is a damn good sandwich. But the best in America? A day after the Reading Terminal stalwart was named the best sandwich in the country by a Travel Channel show, some competitors and their devotees questioned whether host Adam Richman had cast a wide enough net. Richman announced the winner Wednesday night after sampling 28 sandwiches throughout the country and naming 10 regional finalists and two wild cards.

CAMPO'S We were there: 6:14 p.m. (pregame). We waited: 12 minutes. We ordered : A cheesesteak. We paid: $9.50. Phindings: When you call yourself "Philadelphia's Cheesesteak," you better deliver the goods, right? Well, the Pretty Good (as opposed to "Great") Phoodini didn't find that to be the case during his most recent Citizens Bank Park noshfest. After some deliberation, the standard cheesesteak with Cheez Whiz was selected from a limited menu that includes "The Heater" ($9.50)

YOU'VE HAD Pat's. You've had Geno's. You've had Tony Luke's and John's and Jim's and Steve's and D'Alessandro's and Donkey's and Chubby's and Cosmi's and Chick's and dozens more. But have you had a cheesesteak pot pie? Wontons? Spring rolls? Bao buns with spicy pickled shallots, homemade sriracha and micro cilantro? Yeah, probably. Eighty-three years after its invention, Pat and Harry Olivieri's humble creation - originated with butcher's scraps and a hotdog roll - has gone international.

In the waning months of John Bucci's life, he pulled John Jr. aside for a serious talk. "Whatever you do," he told his son, "I don't care how drunk you are, I don't care how in love you are, never give this recipe away. This is my family's name. This is what's important to me. " Bucci, of course, who died of cancer nine years ago today, was speaking of his roast pork sandwich. The Bucci family has served them from its modest luncheonette on Snyder Avenue and Weccacoe Street in South Philadelphia since 1932, two years after John Sr.'s father, Domenico, engineered this flavor explosion in a garage across town.
