Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

Worst BBQ we have ever had!!! Service was not much better!
The BBQ sauce was almost vinegar and the ribs were hard and dry.
Wife's pulled pork was a grease ball along with sisters fried pork sandwich.

On the positive side was the 3 teas, margarita and fried mushrooms were as one would expect.

The surprise was the total bill 93.62 Will never go here again!

“Good Food - Good Service & Clean”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Shortiy has been around for many years and never disappoints me. Last night went in with a large party, perfect chance for them to drop the ball. However service was still great. Price point a bit higher than fast food, but the quality more than makes up for it. Suggestion, try the ribs.

Our server, Kaileigh Stoltz, was totally amazing. The food was delicious and came in pretty big portions. Fun atmosphere too! Can't wait to go back.

“Walked out satisfied”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This location has a very old look to it. It's very unique and different. The food that you get is HUGE! So that makes it well worth the money. The prices are a little bit high. I had the Queso & Salsa and it was very good! I also had the Bbq brisket with baked beans. I was craving for BBQ, so we ate there and it was good. I definitely recommend this location!
