It would have been a nice night for the patio but we thought bar conversation was more up our alley this evening. Great choice as Amber and Summer not only gave us great service but provided entertaining conversation too. BBQ Chicken, Ribs, and Brisket were top notch. Cornbread, slaw, mac'n'cheese, green beans and baked beans were delicious served quick and... More

If you're hankering for ribs, this is your place! Dine inside or out, casual atmosphere, quick service and consistently scrumptious meals. Shorty's can also offered takeout for your poolside house parties, graduations, family reunions, etc.

Love the pickup window concept...you don't even have to go inside of the restaurant! Favorite chili in town.and their salads are delicious! Recommend calling ahead for carry out because this restaurant stays busy!

Great food, great atmosphere. Part of the Mancy's food chain (locally owned). One of my favorite local restaurants. Highly recommend all of the Mancy's restaurants.

Awesome Brisket - Ii get the sandwich and can barely finish it! The pulled pork is great too. We've also had the pork ribs and beef ribs. It's a must every time we are in Toldeo

Came with family of 5 in between soccer games. Really nicely designed and comfortable atmosphere. Cornbread and ribs were really worth the drive

First, the server's were not the friendliest. We were treated pretty much like we were bothering them. Second, the food was okay but nothing to write home about. I was very disappointed after people kept telling us to try Shorty's it's one of the best they said. But, pretty lame.

Thank Ladonna S
