SOUTH MIAMI, FL. – One the last American-style, western-theme restaurants in the city, Shorty’s BBQ continues to spice the palates of locals and travelers alike. I had 48-hours left in Miami and I couldn’t leave without tasting that famous homemade BBQ sauce of theirs. I...More

Arrived at 4:15 on a Saturday and parking lot was full which is the first sign that the food is good. Baby back ribs were clean off the bone when you bit into them--very tender. Cornbread was a sweet tasting version not to my liking...More

The staff is quick and courteous, and the food is amazing. I had the prime rib sandwich and it was heavenly. There are many BBQ places to choose from, but it's hard to go wrong with Shorty's!

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.

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...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...More
