Shorty' s has a great menu with many different choices. They allow you to mix and match options to get a custom BBQ combo. They also offer flavorful side items that compliment any entree. The food there is delicious from the starters to the dessert.

With food that will put your Mom to shame, this place can't be beat. We enjoyed seating near the fireplace and while Shorty's looked crowded from the outside, the seating arrangements don't make you feel crowded at all. Did I mention the amazing food? The...More
