Out for a ballgame? Getting hungry? Forget the traditional peanuts and Crackerjacks, and get yourself a serious snack. Make Shank’s Original your first stop. The welcoming cheesesteak joint has been around for nearly 50 years and knows how to fill an empty stomach.
Shank’s is a great place to find a cross section of locals and a taste of the food that made Philly famous. With hearty cheesesteaks, chicken cutlet Italiano, roast pork sandwiches and classic hoagies it’s Philly with an Italian accent that everyone can understand. Did we mention that they always have great specials that go easy on the wallet? In fact, throughout the month of August when you bring your Phillies ticket into Shank’s and buy one sandwich, you can get one free. So root, root, root for the home team and take yourself to Shank’s. But don’t forget that ticket!
