For one cheesesteak, expect to pay $100. That is nearly 15 times more than the original."We made sure we had the best beef we could find, the best lobster and the right cheese," explains Locascio.

To get top of the line ingredients, Locascio says it costs $17 per pound for cheese, $21 per pound for Kobe beef and $900 per pound for summer truffles.

So who buys the costly sandwich?

On average, five or six customers order it per night and many share it as an appetizer.

I think I'd rather have 14 of the $7 kind than 1 of the $100 ones.

Pat's or Gino's?
