We found this place by chance. Seems it's been around for a long time though! Really tasty bbq ribs, pulled pork and fries. Service was a little slow, but it was very busy when we visited. Would definitely return!

The place is located in the road 40 in Miami. The place haves an average service but the food is good. Their insignia are the BBQ ribs. The piece of a full rack which is big has a price of 19 dollars.

We had the ribs, fries, mac n cheese... and we all loved it, especially that bbq sauce. We were staying at the hotel next door and it took about 10 minutes to get our order.

Walked here from the Comfort Suites Hotel. Was not impressed with the place, didn't seem like the cleanest restaurant. Food was ok, would not make a special trip to eat here again.

Wonderful option to enjoy with the whole family a very good BBQ. The meat options and side orders are very good, service is fast/accurate and the restaurant environment is very nice.

Some friends of ours came into town and they asked for Shorty's so we all met up there and sadly it just wasn't what it was even ten years ago. Service was not as good as it used to be, the food was ok, and...More
