I had seen MiamiDon’s Seven Burgers post at the Roadfood site and it inspired me to check out a few of the places on there.. One of those being, Shorty’s Bar-B-Q which I have not eaten at in a good 7 to 8 years. I’m not the biggest fan of ribs but it seems that this is what you should get when you come to Shorty’s. By the time my wife Marcela and I arrive, my friend Ed is already at the table and as usual my sister Michelle is a bit late. I go appetizer crazy and convince everyone to order Cheese Fries, Onion Rings, Wings, Mac n Cheese and Marcela gets a Corn on the Cob.
By the time the appetizers are served, Michelle arrives and we pretend to not notice her going to town on the Fries and Onion Rings. Nothing too memorable here except for the Sauce at the table which tastes like the crud I clean off of my BBQ grill at home (for the record I have never tasted that crud). I take the comment about nothing too memorable back, Marcela really liked her Corn.
Ed orders a full slab of baby backs, Michelle orders a combo platter with Baby Back Ribs and Spare Ribs and I get the Big Shorty’s Cheeseburger. Ed allows me to try his ribs and they’re pretty good, Michelle allows me to try her Spare Ribs and I could definitely live without that. I am now not a fan of Spare Ribs, and she didn’t seem to like them too much either. Ed likes his ribs though. As for my Burger, well it wasn’t bad, it was ok. I would definitely take a pass on ordering this again if I ever come back here.
We also ordered a Hot Apple Cobbler which was more like a lukewarm Apple Pie with Ice Cream. Marcela and Ed love it. I don’t get it and I might be better off that way.
