I haven't read the reviews of Shorty's on TripAdvisor yet, but I did on another restaurant rating service and nearly all reviews were positive, great, super, best burger in town, etc. Going on their advice, my lady friend and I had lunch there last Friday. You can bet your bottom dollar that we will not be going back. Maybe my... More

While travelling back home from Little Rock I tried to eat here. The girl behind the counter was very nice answering my questions about what's popular on the menu. She took my order then when it came to paying I noticed a tattered Brown cardboard sign on the counter which read, "Cash or check Only" I apologized and she apologized... More

If you want a good ole fashion hamburger this is the place. Don't expect to much friendly atmosphere. They also do not take debit cards so bring cash.

Shorty's BBQ but, unfortunately , I have never tried their BBQ because their CHEESEBURGERS are so darn good! My husband and I go for the burger and shake. I order the tater babies(seasoned wedges) which are fabulous. Youngest gets the grilled turkey sandwich, and loves it. Nothing fancy to look at when you drive by, so don't pass it. You... More

Passing through Conway and stopped for the night. I was told Shorty's was good, and not far from the hotel, so I gave it a shot. I love places that look like you wouldn't want to eat there, because they usually turn out good. Shorty's was no exception. I got 2 BBQ beef sandwiches with cole slaw. Excellent! The view... More

Great place for a burger, make sure to get a shake! The hot dogs are great, as are the onion rings and all the food we've eaten the Rest! They have many types of shakes and they are thick enough to turn upside down, but too good to chance it'!

This place looks like a shady, sketchy and trashy place from the outside. Once you taste the food, you realize that they do this on purpose to keep their business a secret. That's just a guess because the food is so damn good.

This is the best burger I have had in the City of Conway. I think they warm the buns with butter on the grill.

We eat here regularly for lunch. The service is always fast and friendly. Prices are very good. Food is consistently delicious. The place isn't fancy but the food and service make it a winner.

Order at the counter and they'll bring it to you. Had a burger and fries and the strawberry shake was the best I've ever had. The staff is super nice and always checking back with you
