This place is awesome. Get ready to get your fingers messy. The food is delicious and the servers are very friendly. Order the ribs but make sure you order a platter. Ordering seperate could actually add the price up quickly for a ribs place.

Our birding guide suggested Shorty's for a quick BBQ lunch. The meal was fantastic, and the fact that the restaurant is so old added to the experience. I had the pork sandwich and it was very good.

Was on a business trip this was close to our hotel. It is what you expect of a BBQ restaurant. No frills but very good food. Staff was attentive and polite. Enjoy would recommend it to anyone who like BBQ. My brisket plate was delicious and filling.

We also were staying at a Marriott close by (walking distance), and were fooled by the overall rating. Sorry, but while the service is excellent, the food much less so. The baby back ribs had ok flavor but were way more tough than they should be. No real bark, just gloppy sweet sauce coating them. The beef brisket also was... More

We decided to try Shorty's because it was around the corner from our hotel and had a large number of glowing reviews. First indication that we probably were not going to enjoy this restaurant?? Walking in the door, there was NO BBQ aroma. But we stayed. We ordered their 'famous' corn-on-the-cob. Hard. Fried okra. Horrible. Mini-sandwiches of pulled pork, brisket... More

I ordered the BBQ rib dinner. It was as good as ever. Ribs were tender and juicy, french fries were crisp and hot, and slaw was creamy. Yumm!!!

Best BBQ in Miami. Chicken is moist, cole slaw creamy and the fries hot and fresh. If you go to their website you can get discount coupons. I have been coming here for 25 years and always come back.

A 60 year oid landmark serving the best bbq chicken, ribs, mouth watering corn on the cob, with their homemade coleslaw and bbq sauce. Over the years Shortys has expanded its menu to include other veggies and meats, but their fast, friendly service can't be beat. Sit on long tables wherever you want, use paper towels for napkins, you will... More

I went to 4 different BBQ places on my visit and this was my favorite. Besides the food, the waiters were very friendly.

We have eaten at Shorty's a half dozen times and the food was always good. To find a great BBQ restaurant in Miami is a incredible and this is a casual, fun and clean environment. The BBQ is cooked in a real smoker with all the authentic steps, the cole slaw is genuine southern cole slaw, the french fries are... More
