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.

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.

Was looking forward to a good barbecue, but didn't find it here. We had the brisket, dry and not very tasty, ribs, dry and chicken not bad. Service was OK, but could have been more attentive. Not likely to go back.

Visited here while staying at the Comfort Suites nearby. It's a bit basic, but the food is fantastic. We shared a brisket meal, which was just right for 2 people. It just melted is the mouth. It came with fries, coleslaw and a slice of...More
