Shorty's BBQ 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. Expect tattered screens where windows should be, but notice BMW's where the pickup trucks once parked. Take a number, and wait your turn with the hoards of Shorty's devotees to squeeze in at a gingham-covered picnic table, drink beer or iced tea by the pitcherful, and eat America's original fast food off a flimsy paper plate. Also located at 11575 SW 40th St., Miami, 305-227-3196; and 5989 S. University Dr., Davie, 954-680-9900.
