Shorty's has been around for decades and has expanded ever-so-slightly around South Florida over the past 60+ years....Their BBQ is truly UNMATCHED! If you want ribs the baby back are tender and juicy & seem to have a wet sauce lightly applied when grilled; the beef spare ribs are slightly larger, also very lean & tender & have more of... More

While on assignment in Miami. Shorty's Bar-B-Q was arounf the corner from my hotel. I just had to try it based on the smells coming from there!! Over the course of several visits I tried the Baby Back Ribs, the Pulled Pork , the Brisket and the Fried Green Tomatoes. Now none of it was bad, but my favorites were... More

Is there anything better than BBQ ribs? If you like BBQ meals THIS is the place. My favourite is the BBQ chicken. Freshly made and tender....it's heaven. The dishes are big and the lunch specials comes with French fries and coleslaw. Don't expect a fancy restaurant. Only great food and excellent price.

I came here for evening meal. The place wasn't too busy, and appeared to have a mix in customers of locals and tourists (which I normally take as a good thing). I was told to find my own table and a server would come along shortly, which she did. I was passed a quite tatty menu, which appeared to have... More

Very much enjoyed my dinner here. BBQ Ribs were great. Servers were ok but the girl that ran the register had the personality of a book.
