We like eating at different places, particularly places we don't have at home! While on a spring break trip, we drove by Shorty Smalls and decided to give it a try! This was at the beginning of COVID and they had already started taking precautions...-- seating was spread out and silverware came packaged. We had a coupon found on the Branson map for a free onion loaf, so we started with that! It was good, but probably not something that I would order again. The food was good and service was fast. I really enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich.More

Food and service were good. They have food out quickly. Ribs were extremely tender. Meat was falling off the bones.

I ordered the chicken tenders....they were so good, and my plate was loaded with them. The chicken was served with milk gravy on the side, a cheese biscuit that was sooo tender and delicious, with 2 more sides. My husband ordered the ribs which were...very meaty and fall off the bone tender. He loved the BBQ sauce. His plate was also loaded with food! We definitely were not hungry when we left! Our waitress was in training, so had another team member shadowing her. Our service as very good!More

Went in with a GROUPON, showed it to the waiter, asked him if it could be used on the ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT CHICKEN TENDERS. He said yes, so we both ordered the same. After getting out food the manager came up & said it could not be...used. I told her if I had of know I would have gotten their RIBS, which usually are great. We had to pay the full regular price for the dinner, less the GROUPON. By the way the CHICKEN TENDERS were great. Have eaten there before with good results.More

We stopped for lunch at Shorty Smalls and ordered the Cheese Burger and Fries--we were not disappointed! Hot food, Thick Burgers, and a waitress that kept our water glasses full! For desert we ordered the Blackberry cobbler, and it was a generous portion that we...split between us. Very good!More
