Today on LIVE with Kelly and Michael, hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan announced the four semifinalists in “LIVE’s Truckin’ Amazing Cook-Off," and the Mustache Mobile - the food truck run by Mike Hauke of Atlantic City's Tony Boloney's - is still in the running.

Hauke showcases his cheesesteak olé - a creation containing 10-spice sirloin steak, fried onions, Jack cheese and homemade buttermilk-chipotle ranch on a roll from A.C.'s Rando's Bakery. Three summers ago, the olé won a Guy Fieri cheesesteak battle against Chink's Steaks and Rick's Steaks from Philly.

The Mustache Mobile does not have a regular route; Atlantic City, for example, does not allow food trucks.
