Had another opportunity to eat lunch here again while in Miami. All I can say is I was not disappointed. The ribs were fantastic along with the chicken. This place is a must if you're in the area and need your BBQ fix. It will definitely be one of my go to places while in Miami.

My server was very friendly and service was quick. The ribs and chicken were fantastic. Not a great beer selection, though. A casual and fun atmosphere.

I have eaten here a few times and you never know what kind of barbecue you are going to get. First time about a year ago, ribs, pulled pork and brisket were pretty good, but recently, with a take out order, the ribs we got were overcooked, dry and had a harsh taste of too much smoke or something on...

Have been going to Shorty's for years and it is always a must on each trip to Miami. The corn on the cob is amazing and the pulled pork is the best!

Having grown up in the Carolina's, good BBQ was everywhere. You can sweet, vinegar and mustard sauces without any problem. After relocating to South Florida, we tried several different BBQ places but none were as good as Shorty's. There have been others that came close but unfortunately, many have closed over the years - Shorty's continues to be good and... More

Another place that we frequent when in the Miami area. The food is awesome. Décor is okay, nothing fancy. The brisket is outstanding and very large portions are served. The onion rings are the best I've ever eaten. A place that you must visit.

We came for the ribs but fell in love with the pulled pork. Very tasty and one portion was more than enough for me!

I'll admit it.. Shorty's produces good, meaty, saucy, tender ribs. Incredible. But what's going on with the restaurant set up and cleanliness? It just doesn't match the tasty ribs and really needs a lot of work.

If you seek reviews about the BBQ ribs or pulled pork at Shorty's, read elsewhere. I'm here to tell you about their hamburger. My husband and I have been spoiled, and no other burger ever compares. We never eat the BBQ (which we hear is amazing!). This glorious masterpiece takes 25 minutes to prepare, and the server will inform upon... More
