Nothing bad about this previous 60's hot dog stand. You can still eat outside in the summer but don't wait to try their numerous daily specials. Shorty provides some specials with a Greek style flair. Not your chain hot dog stand.

A good quick food spot, great for gyros. Try Shorty's for a great gyro or combo plate. Burgers are good, but his Greek specials are the best and highly recommended. I stop there at least once every three months.

This place sends fast food places running! Shorty's provides fast basic food with quality and great prices! Don't judge the place by its looks. The building is right out of the 50's or 60's, but the food is worth the Time Warp Trip.

My favorite here is the foot long polish sausage. Fries are ok. Not a place to sit and eat unless its nice outside. Then you can sit in their patio. Unfortunately Irving park road is loud.

There were two people enjoying their meal when I walked in - no one at the drive-thru window. It took me about a minute to figure out what I wanted since they have such an extensive menu. I basically decided on the $4 hot dog,...More

Shorty's had some of the best deals in town. They use to have a 'hot dog, fries, drink' special for $4.00. This was a smokin good deal and only last year did they add on another $1.00 and make it a $5.00 special. Perhaps if...More
