Mike Hauke of Tony Boloney's restaurant in Atlantic City has advanced to the finals of the "Trucking Amazing Cook-Off" on "Live with Kelly and Michael."
The winner of the competition will be announced on the show 9 a.m. Friday on WPVI-TV 6.
Hauke's signature dish is the Mustache Mobile Cheesesteak. His truck is the Mustache Mobile. He will be competing against a food truck that makes pulled pork tacos from Scranton, Pa.
"I could not be more excited. It's an honor to represent Atlantic City and represent New Jersey in a national competition," said Hauke, 32.
The winner of the competition receives a $20,000 grand prize. A video on livewithkellyandmichael.com shows Hauke, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan making the sauce and cheese and grilling the meat for one of his cheesesteaks.
Hauke said the finals may be judged by the studio audience and a panel of expert judges.
