I really love Shorty's, what else can I say. Best ribs in town. Love their coleslaw. Corn is perfect. Fries, hmmmmmm. The only problem is that there's no buffalo sauce for the chicken wings. Otherwise, all perfect! And I love the casual environment, I feel...More

Bbq was very disappointing. I ordered the half chicken which was very bland and dry. The brisket was not tender and my favourite item was the coleslaw. On a good note great atmosphere andhuge portions

Amazingly fast customer service, mouthwatering food, great attention!! Great place to bring you family and friends after a long day or to just hang out! Servers are kind and friendly.

Excellent! The best brisket we have ever eaten! Would definitely make this our favorite eating establishment if we lived closer. The servers were very welcoming and kind. The food selection was great. Be sure to get the okra, absolutely delicious!
