In brief: Throat or food pipe

Food stuck in the throat is a physical phenomenon that can be caused by a number of factors, such as a throat/swallowing problem or a food pipe problem. A primary care doctor may help figure this out.
Food pipe problems best evaluated by a gastroenterologist, swallowing problems best evaluated by an ENT physician (otolaryngologist).

Could potentially be a major problem. Usually means you have a narrowing in your esophagus from various reasons.
The reasons could be benign or malignant. Should be evaluated by endoscopy.
