Located in Doral and with a a visit if you are nearby. We liked the rustic yet buttoned up western look. Service was friendly and helpful. Note that this is NOT a classic BBQ joint. You won't be reminded of Memphis or Austin or Kansas...More

Shortys is a Miami favorite, and you won't find better ribs or pulled pork. However, this last visit, one of many, reminded me of how great the staff is. Our server, Dimitri, was nothing less than wonderful, and I'd recommend this place to other restaurateurs...More
