Five stars for food that tastes like it came from dad's backyard smoker, mom's fridge, and grandma's oven. I picked up take-out on a Friday night -- my first time at Shorter's since their move to East Street. I recently moved a few blocks away from their new location and kept smelling the smoker as I drove by. Drool. The scent from the smoker reminds me of our family dinners cooked over a wood fire pit every summer in the Nor Cal redwoods. I ordered the rib dinner with coleslaw and fries. Loved the coleslaw . . . tasted so fresh and homemade . . . plenty of crunch. The fries suffered a bit in regard to the crisp factor in the delay driving home but were still very good . . . tasted as though fried in fresh oil (which is harder to find than one might think). The ribs were very unlike the chain restaurants nearby. I could taste the love that went into the smoking and saucing. And fall-off-the-bone tender! But wait, there's more . . . I had the foresight to order a slice of sweet potato pie for later that night. Well, I dove right in after dinner and the pie was a dense full-potato pie (not puffed up with eggs) and the crust was just the perfect thickness and sweetness so as not to steal the show from the mouth-watering filling. Sure wish I had ordered two slices :-) I'll be back!
