“Where's the gimic?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We enjoyed the food at this restaurant and the service was great but we only went there because it advertised "big fun". To our surprise it was only a regular restaurant, comparable to any Applebee's.

“Great is an understatement”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

When i found out the last Shorty Smalls was closed I was super upset and uesterday when we were driving my church saw the sign and we all started screaming. Today, we can by and it was delicious! I never realized how much i missed it! Our waitress, Dana, was awesome! She was so helpful and we never had a need she didn't take care of!

“Best BBQ in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Shorty Smalls is back in town. They are located in the old Andy Williams Moon River Grille. There is something there for everyone, from BBQ to Fried Chicken Livers, Chicken fried Steak. The portions are huge and there is not a bad item on the whole menu. The macho nacho's are amazing we added pulled chicken to them. They have a great happy hour from 3-7pm and again 9pm until they close. Some of the best desserts. They even have homemade cobblers. We got their specialty drink called a Sadies breath and it comes in a large hurricane glass that you get to take home. the staff is very friendly here. They even have a nice kids menu which included the drink and a ice cream bar. There are lots of coupons in the travel magazines so check that out too.

“Quantity 5, Quality, Three!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Good smoked BBQ should have the hickory flavor. I found the smoked flavor missing. The pulled pork was covered in sauce as were the ribs. I prefer a lighter amount of sauce on my Q and ribs glazed or dry rub. The sides were good. The servings are large (perhaps too large). Nice atmosphere and good service. The waitress was slow to refill my wife's coffee (a huge pet peeve of hers) but quick to notice my drink needed refill. Staff was friendly.

“One of the best restaurants in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We started off with an onion loaf and it was very tasty and filling. We ordered the Ribs which were so tender the meat fell off the bone. We also ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and this was the biggest we had ever seen and it was amazing. The fried okra was hot and fresh. They had a great happy hour where we got huge mugs of beer for $3. Very family friendly and great atmosphere. We will definitely be back.
