The cheesesteaks of today are actually imitations, due to the near extinction of the once-plenteous Pennsylvania Cheesealo. Turn your tongue into a culinary conservationist with today's Groupon: for $4, you get any sandwich or breadless bowl (up to $11 value) at Shorty's in Hell's Kitchen.
The menu at Shorty's guarantees an authentic Philly experience, with bread shipped from Philadelphia and baked in-house every day, classic cheesesteak toppings, and a power jab from the Rocky statue with your first bite. Dive in with a classic cheesesteak served with American, wiz, or sharp or mild provolone cheese and fried onions on request ($9), or chomp on the Shorty's classic (grilled tomatoes, Italian seasoning, oregano, and provolone, $10). Branch out with a pizza steak, loaded with mild provolone and marinara ($10), or break from tradition with a chicken steak sandwich such as the chicken steak special (broccoli rabe and provolone, $11) or the chicken cheesesteak ($9). For $1, top any whole sandwich with roasted peppers, sliced cherry peppers, or sautéed mushrooms.
For a taste of Philly without having to cross the Hudson, grab today's Groupon and walk through Shorty's neon-flanked door. The juicy cuisine of fresh-baked Philly will make each bite a bite to remember for your central incisors and your lateral incisors.
This Groupon is not valid toward The Shorty Special.
- Cheesesteak...yummmmm. And I have never had Italian fries like the ones at Shorty's. – TomT3719, Zagat
- The ONLY ingredient that makes a cheese steak sandwich authentic is the bread, which Shorty's imports from a bakery in Philly and bakes in their own bread oven. Case closed. – foodcart123, Citysearch
- I can't imagine a better cheesesteak than this. Amazing bread filled with the best meat and melted cheese (don't forget the onions!). It just oozes flavor and provides comfort. – Scott, MenuPages
