We had 3 adults and 4 kids (7,5,3,1) with us. It is very kid friendly, great atmosphere, awesome food and splendid service. The ribs are fall of the bone and brisket melts in your mouth. Kids loved their mini cheese pizza's. For an app, try the mozzarella sticks....they are HUGE and full of REAL mozzarella. The BBQ chicken is really good too. Great place too eat. If you order the Macho Nacho's, beware, the name says it all. Want one of these restaurants back in Iowa.

It was my first visit to a shorty smalls and I found the food pretty good but it was a little pricey unless you paid for some kind of a members card that would make your meal cheaper. The service however was lacking I had to go through almost my whole meal with my glass empty. Probably wont go back to this franchise

Took my daughter here for dinner. She is usually a pretty picky eater, when it comes to dining out, and will almost always order just a simple hamburger/fries. I encouraged her to try the Chicken Fried Chicken Pasta and she loved it! Our waitress was extremely helpful and had a great sense of humor; however the greeter wasn't very pleasant. (Can't win 'em all) I recommend this place to everyone, for a good variety of food, and a good family-friendly atmosphere.

Enjoyed dinner at Shorty Smalls! The waiter waiter was attentive and polite . The food was good. We had burgers, brisket, shrimp platter, and a kids chicken tenders plate. Our food was hot. No one had complaints. There was a lot of chewing going on.

Thank you, John, for your kind words about the great food and staff to be found at Shorty Small's OKC! Your right, the Owner's Club is a fantastic deal - for a small monthly fee, get your entire meal half price! Choose any appetizer, any entree, any soft drink and any dessert and pay just 50%! And these are full-size portions off our regular menu, nothing held back! It is perhaps the best kept secret in OKC! Thanks for helping spread the word - and sharing the secret of our Owners' Club!

Cheers!
