Got the Sadie size and it still filled the plate. Wife ordered the fried chicken tenders and got a mound of them! They were super nice and substituted mashed potatoes and green beans for the fries and coleslaw listed as coming with the meal.

We lived in Little Rock back in the 80's and this place was good. Not so much today. I had smoked sausage, more like a cheap "red hot"... if you're from the South you know what that is, that was literally too salty to eat....More

We love the food at Shorty Small's. We highly recommend the Monte Cristo sandwich, and we always pay $1.99 more to upgrade to their sweet potato fries. My only complaint is their prices. The Monte Cristo (spelling?) is $11.49, which includes their good seasoned fries....More

Dillon is the best! He always takes care of us no matter who our server or bartender is even though he is the kitchen manager. Domestic pitchers were $6 on Sunday which was awesome. Food was great as always!
