delicious ribs and fresh sweet Tea!!

These is one of several shortys in Miami, and there are also other bbq places in Miami, none of them comes close to the one in 4oth st. By far the best ribs, best portion sizes, the best sloppy joes and for some extrange reaon best waiters. Friendly and always happy.

You don't think of Miami when you think barbecue, but they have a nice variety of smoked meats available on plates or sandwiches. Very casual atmosphere and good service.

Another visit to one of my favourite places. Excellent pitchers of draught beer. Always spoilt for choice of meals. This time Beef Brisket Plate. So much tasty beef! My wife had half rack of baby back ribs. What a happy and enjoyable atmosphere

My pork in... More
