Shorty's has been serving the same great food since I was a kid. I love the hotdogs with everything and fries with gravy. Wither eat in or take out, the result is satisfaction.

Great local haunt. 2 dogs and chili fries should be on every menu. Not the cleanest place but when you don't have much time, Shortys is the place to go.

I remember this place from when I was a kid. It is simple yet good. It isn't about the dog, but the sauce. Gravy fries are very well done as well. It is truly something from memory lane. Screw all these new fancy fusion crap...More
