We ate in the bar, and our waitress was attentive and terrific! We find the food here just average for Mexican in Manchester, and there are other spots with better food. That said, the atmosphere is fun and the margaritas are good.

Very good Mexican American food. I ordered the fish tacos with a fall IPA. The fish was cool excellently. The tacos has all the flavors you expect from a street vendor. I would highly recommend this establishment! I would be prepared to spent an above average price for the food quality.

Shorty's has always had some of our family favorites but I think some of the dust and dirt has been there for 25 yrs. Does anyone know how to clean? On a recent visit I looked up and saw cobwebs, dust attached to everything over six feet in the air. In addition, the window sills were covered with dirt. It... More

I just tried Shorty's 'new' Roadhouse Mexican Cobb salad. It was excellent !!! Very nicely presented, without the 'ton' of lettuce usually present in dinner salads. Highly recommended.

2nd time to this restaurant. Previously food and service was great. Recent visit, not so. Drinks watered down. Steak not cooked as requested. Waiter forgot to bring drinks or offer chips and salsa. Had to be reminded. Will not return.

Shorty's has always been a favorite. Now that I live in another state, I was a bit concerned about going back, since it is now under new ownership. I'm happy to report nothing has changed...it's still great with much of the menu untouched, which is good because they have lots on the menu I have always loved!

My wife and I stopped at Shorty's on our way home from the Lakes Region. We sat at the bar and had appetizers and a couple of beers. We ordered "Love Me Tenders" with spicy Aztec sauce. Basically Buffalo Chicken Finger, they were very good, not overly spicy but enough for my palate. We also ordered Nachos. Again very good... More

My wife and I visited this evening with my niece and her boyfriend. This was Ricky's first visit to this restaurant. We were seat immediately. Then we were introduced to our waiter Tyler. He was a very helpful waiter to my nieces boyfriend seeing it was his first time there. I ordered their Tres Coloures enchilada dish. I've been going... More
