My family loves this place, the short ribs are awesome, the best coleslaw ever and the BBQ sauce is also super good. Their prices for to go side orders are great and always ready! Can’t go wrong.

Wasn't great but wasn't awful. We went for a late lunch and the brisket was very dry. The coleslaw was great but my sweet potato was TINY. Service was good and the atmosphere was perfect for a BBQ stop.

Went to order take out ,no one at counter when this lady finally showed up she appeared to be bothered and could not be any slower. Bad service!

Shorty's, is old Miami. The original location on US 1 is classic. The Bird Road location is a good alternate if you are in the area and don't want to get stuck in traffic. Good portions at a good price. Very accommodating and attentive.

We had a very nice afternoon at Shorty's. The ribs and coleslaw were good, but the pulled pork had too much BBQ sauce. Good price.

I'd say this place was just ok, taste was decent but brisket was really dry, no juiciness like any good brisket should, ruining the overall experience. Wings were really dry too, meat stuck to the bones and not juicy at all.

We come here when we want authentic BBQ ... there are not many local places that offer this type of food. We usually have whatever ribs deal they are offering. The Mac and cheese is great . I usually order it for the kids and...More

Been coming for years. Love the family specials. Their BBq sauce is the best. Will continue coming here for years to come.
