Vice’s ‘Truckers in the Wild’ Spotlights Lil Dan’s

By

Vice’s newish web video series “Truckers in the Wild” recently touched down here in Hoagietown to get a “taste of Philly’s traditions.” While here, the program’s hosts, chefs and brothers Eli and Max Sussman, hit all the usual spots — Independence Hall, Love Park, and Geno’s — for b-roll. They get points for checking out the century-old Fletcher Street Stables and chatting up the club's infamous Black Cowboys, but they lost us when their attention turned to — hello, totally obvious — cheesesteaks. C’mon, they couldn’t find a decent roast pork sandwich or piping hot bowl of pho to feature? At least they hit up the truckers behind University City’s Lil Dan’s, who gave them a glimpse of their signature Oreo-crusted chicken sandwich before going full cheesesteak on us. Check out the full clip straight ahead.
