One of the hits of this season's Great Food Truck Race on the Food Network has to be Philly's Finest Samboni Boys - three salt-of-the-earth guys from the Northeast who are selling sandwiches (aka sambonis).

Remember, though, that these guys got onto the show without a truck. Just a dream.

So although they're representing Philadelphia, no Philadelphian has actually eaten what they cook.

As the reality show veers crazily toward its finale, we back home can actually see what the fuss is all about with these Sambonis.
