Great Mexican and American food. Nachos served with salsa at no charge. Very nice atmosphere. Great wait staff. This restaurant has been around for years.

At my last visit, August 23, 2016, Jess was very attentive and helpful. Best server, ever. I have always loved Shorty's. When I was a kid, we were fortunate enough to live near the original Shorty's in Litchfield. . . My favorite location has always been Bedford. . . Now I live hundreds of miles away, but I make it...

We've been longtime Shortys customers and always enjoyed good service and good food. Our last trip may be our last. Although the service was great and the atmosphere busy and fun, the food was awful. The complementary chips (and salsa) were stale. My husbands chicken sandwich came out on a plastic tray lined with a checkered piece of paper. The... More

I'm not sure what this place is trying to be, but it's not Mexican. There are several choices in the area for much cheaper and better quality Mexican food. We go the cheese dip for an appetizer and I got the fajitas. The cheeses dip was very expensive for that amount (comparing to similar cheese dips at other restaurants) and... More

This place looks great, Texas roadhouse meets Mexican restaurant. It has very interesting architecture and a big flight of stone steps up to the front door. A nice, stylish hostess greeted us and sat us right away in a booth. The walls have roadhouse decor with some neon signs, etc. The menu looked good. We were excited. And then the... More

The Mexican good is pretty decent and I like the variety (cousin blue type burrito is amazing). Salsa is very good and staff is friendly. Fun atmosphere, but not best for a date night out conversational dinner, it's just too loud.

The atmosphere is fun, the food is good and the service is good. Very relaxed, casual place to hang with friends. Jalapeno margarita is a must!!

Love this place, friendly, great food, good portions, decent prices and their guy Leon is awesome! Love the avocado crisps, espinaca, the chimichangas, the Southern Fried Chicken Salad, the Tres Colores enchiladas, and I love the Durango Steak bowl. You can't go wrong here. It's basic, but consistent.

We love Shorty's. We have been to the locations in both Nashua and Bedford and enjoy both. The atmosphere is very casual. The food, while not your typical Mexican fare, is very good and we do have some favorites. The Espinaca is what really keeps us going back. We take our daughter and her whole family. It's a wonderful place... More
