There have been stories about "Shorty's" for ages. Apparently there may be more than one Shorty's as this one certainly did not rise up the hype I have been hearing about "Shorty's". We arrived about 7:30 Pm and it appeared that the parking was mostly full. However we had no delay in being seated. Our booth was in need of... More

Ate off the lunch menu today. Portion size perfect for us old folks. The tacos for me were prepared correctly and the rice and refried beans complemented the plate. My partner gave a thought Ms up to the beef fajitas. Service was friendly and fast. We stop here whenever we're in the area.

Pretty standard fare in this pub-style Mexican restaurant in Manchester. Food and drinks are decent and the wait staff have been pleasant the several times we have visited. What really knocked us out were the jalapeno poppers, which were really good and the best thing we tried on the menu. Have only been to the Shorty's in Manchester so not... More

I like the choices on the menus, more choices than the average Mexican Restaurant. They have an excellent grilled salmon dish with spinach and pinnapple salsa. Drinks are good too. I just wish they were served in margarita glasses.

We went to Shorty's on a Saturday night and were pleasantly surprised to get a table for 2. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. Drinks were good as usual. Food was terrible. We had the hot poppers and the insides were not cooked. The fired chicken salad was just that, salad with fried chicken on top. The Cuban special... More

We ate in the bar, and our waitress was attentive and terrific! We find the food here just average for Mexican in Manchester, and there are other spots with better food. That said, the atmosphere is fun and the margaritas are good.
