Philly's Finest Sambonis from "The Great Food Truck Race" is one of the teams competing on Season 4 of the Food Network reality series. The team is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

When a serious car accident derailed Erik Thompson's career as an electrician, he decided to see the silver lining and do what he really loves to do: cook. Along with his childhood pals Joe Toner and Chris Turchi, these Philly-proud buddies are determined to teach America what a real Philly Cheesesteak is: diced beef, gooey cheese and a special hollowed out roll are just some of their special techniques. They coined the term "samboni" to refer to a big delicious sandwich, and their specialties are not limited to cheesesteaks — these funny tough-guys can turn anything into an amazing "samboni." Not afraid to step on toes or hurt their competitor's feelings, they will do whatever it takes to win.
