Stopped in for a late lunch after my friend picked me up at the airport. Ribs were good, but could've used a bit more meat. Sauces were very good,especially the sauce for the tomatoes. Would recommend.

I grew up eating Shorty's in Miami and I was very excited when I moved to Davie to see that there was one down the street. This barbecue is a staple to me and I love everything on the menu!
