On a trip to pick up my son,I reviewed some places and wanted to try something local. This is a dive off the beaten path from Baylor. It is "nestled" in a residential neighborhood. We went out for an early Saturday lunch. You order at...More

A friend and I ordered a 14" pepperoni pizza to share. It was delicious and SO GOOD! Not expensive at all. We had a birthday and got a free dessert-root beer floats, which were yummy. Would go there again next time I visit.

College haunts almost always have funky, laid-back atmosphere, but food is not often their strong point. Shorty's is different. Their everything-from-scratch pizzas and "pizza pillows" are excellent, the service is friendly, and the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend.

We literally just picked Shorty's at random when looking for a place to eat before touring Baylor University. The place had a cool, college kid vibe, but was also family friendly. Everyone was very low- key. I heard the cashier behind the bar donate four...More

Took a while to get drinks ordered and get a menu, but the pizza was served hot and the beer, cold. Average pizza and good environment.

This place is awesome! It's a little hole in the wall crawling with college students. Driving by we wouldn't have picked it out, but I'd heard it was good. It was better than good! The works pizza is where is at! This was probably the...More

Before attending a Baylor University women's basketball game we (6 seniors and one middle ager) ate here after reading about Shorty's online. So happy we ate here. The place was packed (a really good sign). Our wait staff was excellent. The manager came by to...More
