Shorty’s Bar-B-Q (Miami, Davie, Doral, Deerfield Beach, Melbourne & Palm Beach Gardens)
***** Shortys-Bar-B-Q, 9200 South Dixie Highway, Miami, Florida 33156 (305) 670-7732.
Shorty’s is a South Florida bbq-chain…Its original location on South Dixie Highway has been around since 1951…Shorty’s website is www.shortysbbq.com …check the site for locations/menu/pricing.
Shorty’s Bar-B-Q is a terrific-casual restaurant… the menu is loaded with delicious appetizers, sides and top-notch pork/beef/chicken bbq…big portions at really reasonable prices. In the South Dixie joint, “you” sit at long tables next to total strangers…at the other 6 locations, Shorty’s gives “you” your own table or booth…that’s called progress.
Over the years, I must have eaten in the Dixie Highway location at least 10 times. Most recently, I have been eating in Shorty’s Deerfield Beach store which opened about 1 year ago. Same delicious food…same portions…same prices…booth and table seating…By the way, the Deerfield Beach joint (if I have read all of the locations’ menus correctly) is the only Shorty’s that has bbq beef ribs…I have to tell you, that those beef ribs are not just good, but are fantastic…why Shorty’s doesn’t have them in its other stores is beyond me.
Like I said before, Shorty’s is a casual joint…be prepared to get really messy in this joint, because the bbq sauce is all over the place…Shorty’s has plenty of paper towels…
Shorty’s is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
Recently started the Atkins diet so, meats, fish and chicken are on the menu for me. Can’t stand the roast chicken from Publix or Costco’s. Found this place Shorty’s and absolutely love its chicken. I order a whole chicken and I am set for a couple of days. Cant eat the ribs because they are loaded with sauce. The chicken is real good and I am glad that I found this restaurant.
Four of us ate at Shorty’s store in Deerfield last night. Got there at 8pm and had to wait 30 minutes for a table. Shorty’s has a rib sampler for $19.95 that fills your plate with St Louis ribs, baby backs and beef ribs, potato, cole slaw and garlic toast. There is enough to feed 2 people. The ribs are delicious and you need to use half a roll of paper towels to wipe your hands and face. We also had bbq chicken and chicken caesar salad and they were also very good. The whole bill with sodas and 20 percent tip was $55. That’s a bargain and we had a really good meal. I highly recommend this restaurant.
I love this rib joint. A lot of good bbq for a reasonable price.
The beef ribs are my favorite.
great burgers. known for bbq, but you should try the burgers, as good as any around.
Ate at this dump a while back when they first opened. Disgusting food, service, and atmosphere. Food had enough grease on it I could’ve gave my car an oil change. Service was unbearable, my waiter got our order of entrees before our drinks. Decor was eye soaring, felt like I was in a barn starring at the twenty year old rusting hack saws hung on the walls.
Forgot to mention, I definately recomend Dixie Pigs Bar-B-Q over this place, they blow Shortys out of the water.
Food last night from Shorty’s in Deerfield. Good beef ribs. Good St. Louis Ribs. Good bbq chicken.
A lot of decent food for your money.
good bbq, park avenue is better
Went to the Davie location last week and had great ribs and Brisket.I have been a long time diner at Shortys for 50 years starting at the South Dixie location when I went to the U.Sometimes the food is not up to par other times it is fantastic.Mind you,Arthur Bryants in KC is still my favorite.
Shorty’s has been a South Florida tradition since 1951. They have great ribs and their chicken is excellent. I also like their baked beans. By Gregg L. Friedman MD, Psychiatrist, Hallandale Beach, FL

I have been eating at Shorty’s for over 35 years. The food is terrific and priced right. If you want a really delicious bbq meal then get to Shorty’s.
Food is ok but far from being something that anyone would dream about eating.
Love the bbq ribs.
Good food at a fair price.
