SOUTH MIAMI, FL. One the last American-style, western-theme restaurants in the city, Shortys BBQ continues to spice the palates of locals and travelers alike. I had 48-hours left in Miami and I couldnt leave without tasting that famous homemade BBQ sauce of theirs.

I went cruising down South Dixie Highway at high noon, when I saw their iconic flagship store with its bright red neon lights that read SHORTYS. Just then, I flashed back in time. Edward Louis Shorty Allen, who started the business back in 1951 from a barbecue stand, passed away in 2013 at the age of 104 (Woah!) But he left a legacy that it is unique to South Florida and its community.

I parked my car, went in and sat down.

Ill have the beef brisket, maam with ice tea I said. When I tried it was a bit heavy on the pepper seasoning, but overall an excellent choice.

Aside from their nostalgic dcor, the true star of the restaurant is their slow cooked baby back ribs with that famous sauce only found at Shortys. Other items on the menu include the beef spare ribs, chicken, pulled pork sandwiches, brisket, and of course their delicious coleslaw which is always chock full of celery salt which gives it a great tasted and creaminess at the same time. The corn on the cob is sweet, perfectly cooked and drenched in butter the way its meant to be eaten. And a small side or BBQ baked beans makes this dish complete.

This place has amazing BBQ. The ribs, pulled pork sandwich, onion rings and sweet potato are fabulous- this is proper Southern BBQ at its finest. I'm completely addicted to this place and sometimes pass up opportunities to go to more upscale restaurants to go to Shorty's. Its also a great value for your money. Make sure you go to their website before going because they often post coupons. Service is colorful but good. The one thing that sometimes disappoints me about the place is that more than once when I've been there, they've run out of something I've wanted to order.

Pros: delicious food

Cons: The guilt after eating so many calories......

Even when BBQ is bad -- it is still tasty. Unfortunately, that doesn't hold true for Shorty's. The Shorty's on South Dixie Hwy serves low quality products and ranks low on the taste meter. The pork is hard and stringy, and the spare ribs have less meat on them than Nicole Ritchie at an anorexics anonymous meeting. The sauce is not thick and sweet or even slightly spicy like good BBQ should be, but namely brown, runny, vinegary goop. At first, I thought we had come to this place on a bad day, so we went back last week and had the same disappointing experience. If you've lived in Florida most of your life and have never experienced southern BBQ, or even Texas or Chicago BBQ, then I guess this mediocre fare would fit your palate. But if you've been enlightened and have had even moderately good BBQ in another locale, then you'll understand that Shorty's is just a pretender. Don't be fooled -- Shorty's has been around a long time not because it's good, but ONLY because it has no real competition from any other traditional BBQ houses in South Florida.

Pros: Easy to Find - Convenient

Cons: Low Quality BBQ, Poor Sauces, Poor Waitservice and Head in the Sand Management

Miami native remembers the old Shorty's way ago in the late 50's and 60's when you had to wait your turn in a long line for the finest barbecue is South Florida. Sadly, today's Shorty's is but a shadow of what it once was, the passion is just not there. Still, good barbecue, especially recommended is the half chicken platter or for lesser appetites the ridiculously cheap priced pork or beef sandwich. Avoid the ribs. My advice is to skip the US1 Shorty's and ask for directions to the Bird Road restaurant, far superior, imo.

Cons: just food in no way a dining experience

Shorty's is not what it once was. Years ago, we'd stand on line for half an hour waiting to get in. Now, the food seems too mediocre for such a long wait. The ribs, sauces, and Key Lime pie are good but the fries have got to be the worst ever made. The coleslaw is too "goopy" and the beans are just "okay". Come on, Shorty's, we miss the old days!!!

All of us that have lived in Miami at one point in our lives have Shorty´s in our hearts. Its not only the great juicy BBQ ribs, or the greasy corn on the cob, but also the memoirs left in our hearts. I´ll never forget:
* The white haired elder waitress that has been there for ages.
* Waiting for the Flyer coupons to have an excuse to go to Shorty´s (even if we didn´t use the coupons after all)
* Going with our parents, high school friends, families, and then taking our children to taste the best ribs in town. I mean generation after generation.
* No matter what the occasion is, this is the place to go!

Pros: UMMMMMM! Delicious BBQ Ribs.

Cons: Only go to the one on US1 !

Their sauce tastes like an ASHTRAY. Coming form NC, I have high expectations of barbecue.

Shorty's DOESN'T cut it. Their pulled pork sandwiches are drenched in this dark, heavy sauce that ruins the pork.

I do not recommend this restaurant.

My family which includes myself, my husband, and 3 of my sons all love the pork sandwiches. I love their coleslaw too, never tastes like store bought to me. I have bought the pork sandwich platters and eaten it there (took my husband & took my mom), also took it home with me. Twice in the past few months we have also enjoyed the take home pork with sandwich rolls and sauce, french fries and coleslaw. It's very good and the price isn't bad. Order plenty, you will be glad you did! I had iced tea w/lime & my husband had a cold beer. Check your order before you leave so you can go home and enjoy your meal with the family.

The secret to this experience is the BBQ sauce. This has been a Miami mainstay since the 1960's since we started going there...a place with no A/C and a screen enclosure only. Upgraded now it is still the BEST PLACE FOR BBQ in Miami. NOTHING compares to the taste or succulent nature of the rib plate in the world. Buy the sauce to take home and you will have the best BBQ in the neighborhood. I have never taken anyone there from countries around the world and not have rave reviews. It is a mainstay of the VARIG flight crews for eat in or take out meals. This is a WORLD CLASS dining experience...don't doubt it...forget the doily crowd...just try it an experience a totally unique taste experience.

Pros: TASTE, TASTE, TASTE

Had a great experience at Shorty's. A friend and I sampled everything and thought they did a very good job. Nice smoke ring, tender. The ribs had a nice "toothsome" feel, not pork jello at all. The chicken and beef were done right. Sides were very good. All in All very good barbecue for a commercial BBQQ joint.

Service was delightful with a server that had both and additude and a sense of humor. When we questioned her about the preparation, she brought the manager out and we spent about an hour with him talking about how they do everything. (It was a slow part of the afternoon)

A good sign was the wood rack out back filled with logs.

Reccomend this place, they do know how to do it and they care about it.

10 years ago this was once a wonderful place for beef sandwiches,ribs, chicken, corn and slaw! Now, like everything else another chapter of Great Florida eatting has dissapeared into the abyss! Sadly, the chicken is fatty, the ribs as dry as the desert, the slaw tastes like it was made in Publix! How the heck does this happen? Management should never have expanded this joint. It`s lost its allure. Anyone, who can tell you that "This is the place for Ribs" is in denial.

Living in Miami for 20 years Shorty's became a mainstay for us. It was not until we moved did we realize how good the food really was. We have tried to find another place locally to compare, but nothing can touch the food, service and atmosphere of wholesome family fun....

Amazing... First baby-back ribs I've eaten that required no sauce. The only complaint I had was the sauce... The ribs were so spectacular the sauce was a let-down. The brisket was cooked well but wasn't as tasty as true Texas beef brisket.

A favorite since 1951, Shorty's often has lines of hungry people stretching out the door. The old-fashioned log cabin building is bare-bones, with concrete floors and long wooden picnic tables. Seating is family-style,…
