About Shorty’s Bar-B-Q
Shorty’s beginnings began when Mr. E.L. “Shorty” Allen left Georgia as a young man more than 65 years ago, and built and opened the familiar log cabin style restaurant in 1951. Since those early days, Shorty’s has been satisfying appetites with their famous ribs, chicken, homemade sauce, creamy cole slaw, and of course delicious corn on the cob.
Loyal patrons were shocked when their favorite restaurant burned down in 1972, but thankfully, two years later was able to rebuild an almost identical building on this same location.
Also in 1992 “Hurricane Andrew” came through South Dade County. Shorty’s was heavily damaged but thanks to a lot of hard work, reopened in a week to serve the community. Shorty’s continues to be an “Oasis in Time”, where customers can come taste what it was like in South Florida over 65 years ago.
Today the flagship Miami restaurant remains a piece of South Florida’s glorious history, a nostalgic and delicious landmark next door to Datran Center Skyscrapers, and a block from Dadeland shopping center, as well as four locations throughout South Florida. The “Shorty’s Atmosphere”, can be found no matter which location a customer visits, so old friends recognize that the familiar tastes remain almost unchanged since 1951.
