Classic Philly cheesesteaks and hoagies on the South Philadelphia waterfront.
Visit Shank’s Original for a highly reputed cheesesteak and an old-school South Philly experience transplanted to the waterfront. The tradition of Shank’s dates back to 1962 when Shank’s and Evelyn’s (“Shank’s”) opened its doors to the Italian Market near 10th and Catherine Streets. In 2009, Shank’s closed it’s original location and opened a new location on Columbus Boulevard. The new location is right at the base of Pier 40 on the Delaware River.
Order your favorite classic Philly sandwich — Shank’s makes cheesesteaks, roast pork sandwiches, cheesesteaks and several other delicious offerings — and grab a spot at the outdoor picnic tables overlooking the river and enjoy your sandwich with a view. Juicy meatball sandwiches on Kaiser rolls come with or without provolone. Cold hoagie offerings include the Italian (mixed meats and mild provolone), the Old-School Italian (with prosciutto and sharp provolone), a tuna and a veggie.
