I've never had a bad meal here. I make it a point to hit this place every time I come to Miami. The ribs are tender and tasty. The pulled pork is great. All the sides I've tried have been great. You won't be disappointed.

The best baby back ribs.....the best corn souffle.....the best baked beans.....Overall, just amazing food. Its hot in there, and the wait is long....but man is it worth it. Really delicious bbq with no frills. Just really good comfort food. If you have room, have the banana pudding dessert....amazing.

Friendly service at this local joint. It was a busy Saturday night so service was slow, but we enjoyed the food. Large portions!

I have been eating at Shorty's forever, and knew about Shrivers since the 60s. The Chicken BBQ is the BEST in town!

It's a Lil pricy but worth every penny. It's also different, you get to sit in a table with total strangers, it is not a one table per group, but ribs are really good

We spent the night in Homestead and went here to eat after checking out the Trip Advisor rating. The best BQ I have ever had! And I have eaten a lot! The service was a little slow out of the gate but got better. The seating is on benches and wooden tables and we were seated next to a young... More
