Shorty’s is our go-to place to eat when traveling to and from the Sawtooths. Amazing curried chicken sandwich. And a huge chocolate shake. Love their environmentally friendly take-out boxes and paper straws.

Conveniently located in Hailey. Fun old style diner with jukeboxes on each table. Fast service even though there were a lot of people there. Our breakfast was really good, especially the french toast.

The place was quite busy when we arrived for breakfast. We were promptly seated though the person seating us seemed in a bit of a mood which didn't help the first impression. My husband ordered 2 eggs over easy, bacon and potatoes, I chose their...More

A fun place for a nice & healthy quick meal. This is a very clean fun diner that is 50's style. The food seemed really homemade, but healthy, not greasy or loaded down with butter (like most diners). We were impressed with the quality of...More
