Had this for a group lunch as take out (so only can comment about food). Beef brisket was really, really good...with very sweet sauce. Macncheese was fantastic, as was the slaw and beans.

This was heavily book before the Christmas holiday. Can back a couple months later and still had to sit in bar for seating. Server was attentive. Food was average - nothing bad but nothing amazing either. The patio area is nice in warner weather. Prices are reasonable to high for lunch.

Nice, solid good food. Nice service and atmosphere. A short wait and a Wednesday. Something for everyone on the menu.

We went there for a late Lunch early dinner during the week.. the service was good.. but the ribs were kind of tuff and dry. The fries were hard and a little old.. but the Mac and cheese was pretty good..

Absolutely amazing barbecue. This was our first time at Shorty's but definitely will Not be our last. My wife and I ordered the "Feast for Two" so we could sample everything. And everything we ate was tender and delicious. The pulled pork was both of our favorite. Tender juicy smokey goodness. We did not leave hungry. As a matter of... More
