The Star at Shorty’s is their slow cooked baby back ribs with their famous BBQ sauce

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.

Shorty's Restaurant Review

Shorty’s is a blast from the past in neighborhoods where newness is the norm. This mecca for carnivores is teeming with mouthwatering American specialties that this family has been doing right since 1951: baby-back ribs and chicken, tender and saucy, plus barbecue sandwiches that beat out any south of Kansas City. Some of the waitresses have been at Shorty’s since the ’50s; pray you’re lucky...

South Florida's most popular low-frills barbecue joint for more than half a century.

In Short
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...

Our new Floridian friends that we met on our Caribbean cruise told us that we would not satisfy our hankering for good BBQ in Florida, but we stumbled across this place on our way down to the Keys and it more than met the bill. Great country/home cooked feel, absolutely delightful staff and our craving was well satisfied with our...

Tips about this business (8) view all

Look Good: If you like the signature dark and sweet tomato-based barbecue sauce so much, why don't you marry it? Well, at you can buy a bottle so you can take it home with you.

Know Before You Go: Intimate it's not. Many dining groups share the same long picnic tables, so come in expecting to rub elbows with some BBQ-loving strangers.
