“Great ribs and okra”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

I always get the fried okra here. It is so crisp on the outside. The ribs here are great too - very tender. The service is always very good too.

I remember this restaurant when I went to the U of Miami. Let me tell you it was MANY years ago In South Miami and it was soooo good back then but then there was a fire and the restaurant burnt down. Lucky for us that love this place, they rebuilt it and many others as the years when on. Now we have many locations to choose from. We usually go to the one up in West Broward in Davie.
The ribs are the best. Ask for the WARM SHORTY'S BBQ SAUCE. It is finger liken good. The corn on the cob is ohhh sooo good! If you are not into ribs there are other things like chicken or pulled pork or burgers. Many sides to go with your main dishes that are all delicious. If you have any room left, they do have desserts that are yummy.
They also do orders to go or will cater your next party. ENJOY and don't forget that WARM BBQ SAUCE.!!!!!!

“Bar-B-Q At It's Best”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Davie is a town that has managed to maintain it's rural atmosphere in an area that is now almost completely built up and Shorty's fits right in. This is authentic Bar-B-Q at it's best, the decor is what you would expect at a real Bar-B-Q restaurant and not at a fancy place, the service is quick and friendly and the menu is the usual for Bar-B-Q. The food is excellent! Unfortunately I can only comment on the Corn on the Cob and the Baby Back Ribs, no matter how often we come here and no matter how hard I try, I end up with Corn on the Cob, served steaming hot and rolling in butter and Baby Back Ribs cooked to perfection. The accompanying French Fries are always freshly cooked and the Cole Slaw and Garlic bread round off a meal made in Bar-B-Q Heaven! Wash it all down with a couple of glasses of sweet tea and you will not regret having visited the Town of Davie and Shorty's

“Yummy bbq”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Love their special bbq sauce and delicious Cole slaw with celery seed. Baby back ribs, bbq chicken, baked beans, corn on the cob, bbq pork, bbq beef are all great choices. Can have beef and pork in sandwiches or in complete dinner, that includes garlic bread. Everything is mouthwatering good. Lots of lunch or dinner options. Shorty's is a south Fla. Institution.

“No Complaints!”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

The food was good and reasonably priced. The ribs were tasty, even though my older son says mine are better. My younger son liked all the animal heads on the wall, and animal skins on the ceilings. The service was pretty good also. My overall rating would be higher if the food blew me away.
