Review of Shorty's Grill

Ranked #19 of 46 Restaurants in Bedford
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 May 2017

We used to love Shorty's but things have declined over the years. This location , in particular seems to struggle. The décor needs some serious attention. Tired posters in cheap frames and worn out tables and chairs need updating. The awkward seating arrangements in the dining room, too loud barroom music and poor acoustics do not make for a pleasant eating atmosphere. Couple that with mediocre, carelessly presented, overpriced food and it's no wonder this restaurant struggles. Our server was pleasant, prompt and cheerful but I suspect that would be the case regardless of where she worked. Sorry, I cannot recommend this restaurant unless you are out of options and absolutely have to eat out. There are too many other better choices for Mexican in the area.

We stopped in here as a family for a late lunch. We were seated quickly and all had Mexican food except one person had a big salad. All of the food was good and there was lots of it. Most of us took doggie bags home. Worth a stop if you like Mexican. If they have other types of food, I like Mexican food so well I didn't even look on the menu.

Came in between events. Grab a beer or two. Nice set up. Staff friendly as well. Will be back when I'm in this area

I visited here twice in the last month with my husband and with a friend. Both times we were seated quickly and the food was great. Definitely one of the better values around. I love the salads here that come in the tortilla bowls and they have happy hour too!

We were driving by and we're drawn by the cool exterior of the restaurant. Once inside, the atmosphere was vibrant and fun as well. We opened the menus and were further pleased. Everything seemed great. Then the food arrived...large portions (of mostly filler) and pretty bland flavor profiles. We got the pulled chicken burrito, fish tacos and braised beef tacos. The chicken burrito was huge but almost all rice. I had to take three bites before I got to the chicken. The food was prepared well but the sauces and flavors in each dish could certainly be amped up.
