Hot dogs, booze, and pinball in one place spells fun for everyone (well, everyone 21 and older). Shorty’s serves an array of bargain-priced wieners with a vast assortment of accompanying condiments—the Chicago dog, with all its salady stuff piled on top, is kind of close to healthy. Nostalgic soda pops and vegetarian options are offered for those who choose to abstain but still remember how to have a good time. For relatively high rollers, the Trophy Room back bar carries top-shelf liquors. Shorty’s RULZ.
