Shorties is the best steakhouse in NYC, in my opinion. They have several locations( they ship their bread from philly !!)

But my favorite thing on their menu is chicken buffalo steak sandwich ( made in either blue cheese or ranch) . It absolutely hits the spot each time. I was lucky to have shorties near work before and this was a great once a month splurge.

Shorty's is disappointing. I've tried it more than once and at more than one location.

The Philly Cheesesteak is actually very popular in NYC already. I bet it's a top ten most ordered bodega item.

My family recently moved to CC. Every time I eat a cheesesteak there (probably like every other month) I just go straight for Steve's on 16th. I've heard Tony Luke's is great too. Which do you prefer? I'm hoping the Tony Luke's in the city satisfy the cravings well enough.

Blue collar? Perish the thought. I will not soil my fingers with anything so... common.


Aaaanyway, I bet the Bronx location will be near Yankee stadium and the Yonkers location will be at Cross County Shopping Center. That makes the latter more convenient for me unless somehow the Bronx location turns out to be north of Fordham Road.

Thank you,
I must have walked by it many times without noticing.

That's not ketchup, it's a spicy tomato sauce. Yeah, the pickles add nothing, but hot cherry peppers and fried onions are a must.
The sandwiches were IMMENSE and that $6.60 price for the cheesesteak is appealing.
