We wanted a home made burger. The restaurant is large, decorated with classic movie posters and memorabilia. TV's adorn the walls playing the sports games. Customers are to wait to be seated. Our hostess was not very friendly and didnt seem happy. We order two bacon cheese burgers with fries, gravy and a glass of water, our bill was $34.00.... More

Went to Shorty's to celebrate my wife's Birthday with friends as this was her choice. Very polite and friendly service from the time we entered to the time we left. Food was good, hot, and served quickly. Will definitely go back in the future.

A great place in downtown area for lunch or dinner. They are famous for their Greek dishes but their chicken florentine is one of my favorites.
