SOUTH MIAMI, FL. – One the last American-style, western-theme restaurants in the city, Shorty’s BBQ continues to spice the palates of locals and travelers alike. I had 48-hours left in Miami and I couldn’t 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 “SHORTY’S.” 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. “I’ll have the beef brisket, ma’am – 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 décor, the true star of the restaurant is their slow cooked baby back ribs with that famous sauce only found at Shorty’s. 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 it’s meant to be eaten. And a small side or BBQ baked beans makes this dish complete. more

Good BBQ in South Miami 8/27/2005

Drive past Shorty's on a weekend evening or Sunday afternoon -- and the line is almost always out the door. This is a very casual, family friendly restaurant that also does a lot of take-out business. The BBQ is the best we've found in Miami -- slow cooked. The babyback ribs and chicken are excellent and the sauce is tangy. A good amount of sides to choose from as well. I found the prices to be reasonable and the service to be good. more

Bar-B-Q for Miami 8/25/2005

Since the early 1950s, Miami residents and visitors have flocked to Shorty’s for their Bar-B-Q fix, with all the fixings. Slow-cooked and smoked to perfection, the meat is tender and flavorful. The ribs are especially nice. The restaurant has the classic ambiance of a shack. Its construction might be described as something between a cabin and a tent. I have no idea how it can withstand the average rain storm, much less the hurricanes of recent years. Clearly, it is the food that keeps the customers coming back after all these years. Or maybe they put an addictive chemical in the sweet sauce… more
