Great place, I was here for the second time and will always try to make it to this place when I am in Miami. Baby back ribs tender. Chicken legs juicy. Service awesome and funny! Only thing I left on my plate again is the fries. Please Shorty's team try get better ones.

Met my husband here for lunch today. Good service from Audi, food tasted great and prices are very reasonable but I got an upset stomach immediately after eating. I had the pork steak lunch platter so maybe the pork was dodgy? Hubby had chicken lunch special which was fine. Eaten here many times before and never had a problem so... More

If you do not have the time to grill at home, Shortys is the place to go. Picnic tables - check Corn bread - check BBQ ribs - check BBQ Sauce - check Bake beans - check Paper towels - check

Good Food & Service. For the price you pay...you get a good deal. Good fast service and awsome to get a quick bite. It looks like a typical road stop

Nothing not to like about Shorty's. I am normally not a huge ribs person, but theirs can't be beat; especially with the great BBQ sauce - I like the sweet version. Cole slaw and chicken are also tops. The onion rings are their weakest item on the menu.

Doing our BBQ ribs research in the web for our future trip to Miami, all roads and advices pointed us to this old school wonderful place ! As expected, we reached a cosy barbecue tavern-restaurant, where everything is about the food they've being serving for years. The corn with butter and the monster onion rings creates expectations that the main... More

Probably the most known BBQ place in Miami... The ribs, fries and coleslaw are very good, the ambiance is on the rustic side.

Dined here with my husband and nephew on 05/30/15. Our server Jorge was attentive, made great suggestions and was on point. The food was freshly made and delicious. I had the rib and chicken combo. I will definitely return!
