Shorty’s looks like every other sports bar you’ve ever seen, with one key difference: they make a good cheesesteak. They even give you the option of Cheez Whiz (along with American and provolone). The kitchen stays open past midnight every night, so this is good late-night dining option when all you want is something you’ll regret eating in the morning, such as french fries with Cheez Whiz and bacon.
