Shortys was always my absolute favorite restaurant. I no longer live in Miami but I visited last week and was dying for some Shortys ribs and their fabulous creamy coleslaw. I took my friend that's from out of town and has always heard me rave about this place. I couldn't believe that my all time favorite restaurant had changed the... More

We come here when we want authentic BBQ ... there are not many local places that offer this type of food. We usually have whatever ribs deal they are offering. The Mac and cheese is great . I usually order it for the kids and end up taking a few bites myself.

Was looking forward to a good barbecue, but didn't find it here. We had the brisket, dry and not very tasty, ribs, dry and chicken not bad. Service was OK, but could have been more attentive. Not likely to go back.

Visited here while staying at the Comfort Suites nearby. It's a bit basic, but the food is fantastic. We shared a brisket meal, which was just right for 2 people. It just melted is the mouth. It came with fries, coleslaw and a slice of garlic bread. We want to go back and try other things.

we were very disappointed in our meal. Food was not very good. I had to reorder twice but what I had order was not available. My husbands BBQ was very dry.

Been going for over 15 years plus, and as usual the ribs, briskets been the best so far in Miami, I suggest the entire menu is good.
