“Good burger, good value”
Reviewed June 11, 2012 via mobile

I was in town on business looking for some good food and a place to watch game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. I chose Shorty's.

They have a solid, and not overly large menu. After some questions (I like fresh food) I decided on the Rocky Burger. This is an 8oz hand made patty with cheese, bacon, pulled pork, carmelized onions, lettuce and a home made aioli. It sounded good and didnt disappoint. The pulled pork wasnt smoked but they made it in house and mixed Jack Daniels BBQ sauce in for a nice flavour.

I chose coleslaw as my included side dish and I ordered some onion rings just to try them. The onion rings and slaw were fine but not necessarily were they hand made. I have a feeling they were commercial products available from Sysco/GFS or similar.

Good burger, good atmosphere, good beer selection...I will certainly go back!

“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

Up on a business trip for the week, went here for lunch. The food/atmosphere was incredible.
I had the 8oz special for the day, yum yum yum. My colleague had the broccoli&mushroom chicken.
