Hello Yorkville! Another great new biz that was surely needed along 1st Avenue up near where I live in NYC and a great addition to the hood. Shorty’s Cheesesteaks brings the mouth watering comfort food staple of Philly right up here to NYC. No need to head 3-4 hours down the Jersey turnpike to get a bite of one now since it’s right up here in my backyard. This could be a blessing and a curse! Deez damn cheesesteaks are just so dang delectable!

The selection of crafty brews here makes it so easy to wash down a great cheesesteak sandwich. Actually, 24 in total served nice and cold. Last time I was here I tried out a flight of beers in the above picture which was a terrific choice. Loved my first taste of a sandwich at Shorty’s. A big key is the exceptional bread they serve it on – light, soft, and a bit crispy at the same time. The juicy meat and gooey cheese is packed inside and tastes oh-so-gut-busting-belt-loosening gloriously orgasmic! I could really eat two in one sitting. Don’t judge! Hey, this ain’t no Weight Watchers meal here! Dig in and don’t count calories!


Plenty on the menu for everyone – including some vegan friendly options, salads, sliders, etc. Delivery until midnight every day. Weekend brunch too. This place has become another one where it will test my resolve to eat healthy and stay in shape. I mean, having a warm filling cheesesteak sandwich on a cold winter day sounds pretty perfect to me. All day, every day.

Also, Lawd Jeebus people please stop drinking crappy Bud Light when you can down a Troegs Mad Elf, Shipyard GingerBreadHead Ale, or Weyerbacher Last Chance IPA on tap here. I find it so sad when I see people drinking bad beer in a place like this. I mean, why ruin such a scrumptious cheesesteak with a pint of mediocre beer?

So so sad.

  1. I opened that spot with the original side partners/owners and it wasn’t always Shorty’s.. it was Tony Luke’s.. KING’S of the Philly Cheese Steak in the heart of PHILLY !!!

  2. omg – I love a good cheesesteak. That looks amazing, as does the row of fine brews you got there. I like to go to this place in Princeton called Triumph Brewery where they have really great micro brews and a sampler much like the one pictured above. They’ve got a coffee stout and a rye ale that are out of this world.

  3. I’d love to give these a taste some day. Being my whole family is originally from Philly, I’m a little biased when it comes to cheesesteaks! I’m with you on the bad beer. Never understood when you are at a place that serves awesome beer and somebody says “I’ll take a Bud.”

    Get a beer, dude! Not some water with a little barley and hops!
