    The Eagles crushed the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving -- a big win for Birds fans and cheesesteak lovers as the owner of a South Philly steak shop promised to give away free grub if his favorite team -- the Cowboys -- lost Thursday.

    Anthony Renzulli, the owner of Atney's Grub, gave away free food from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday. Word of the gratis grub surfaced earlier this week during a sports talk show on 94.1 WYSP. 

    Located on Oregon Avenue between Broad and 13th streets, Atney's Grub gave the free cheesesteaks to any walk-up customers. The free sandwiches are not available through delivery.

    Workers anticipated giving away about 500 free cheesesteaks during the two-hour stint.

    As for Atney's owner -- Renzulli remains a Cowboys fan despite the team's Thanksgiving Day whooping.
