Trying Shorty Smalls for the first time, definitely would recommend! Seth (my waiter) was wonderful and very helpful, the environment was very welcoming and clean! I would say this is something I will be revisiting soon!

Had lunch here with some coworkers while in from out of town on business. Found this great BBQ place near our hotel. Well worth the visit! The restaurant interior is cool, our server Tracie was awesome, and most importantly the food was great. I didn't get too deep into the BBQ menu at lunch but I tried the pulled pork... More

Had lunch here after landing at the OKC airport in the early afternoon. Just a short drive down the road. I had the grilled chicken salad. It wasn't special but it was good.

We reserved a few tables. We arrived and we're seated immediately, even though we weren't all there. We had several servers-Darla, Lucas and Huff. They kept our drinks filled and told what the specials were and came around asking if we needed anything. Great food and service.

A friend and I stopped in for dinner last night after an outing. We were greeted and seated promptly. Lyndsi was our server, and she was excellent. She was very friendly and personable. She told us of the drink specials and was very attentive. The food was phenomenal!!! I had the bar-b-que chicken and Sadie's sausage. Probably the best chicken... More

Went for the catfish. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, served fresh and hot. It was so good we even had seconds. The cole slaw was good. Mayo based. Chris was our server and he was always checking on us to see is he could do anything for us. I wish other restaurants had waiters like Chris. I... More

We come here many times a month and we always have great service and great food! They offer a great selection from burgers to sandwiches and salads. My father loves the catfish and I have tried many different things but I love the Monte Cristo sandwich (but I have to watch myself and only get every once in a while!)
