Shorty's in Longmont is a great casual bbq place for ribs and brisket. Their ribs practically drip off the bone and the meals are served in reasonable portions. The menu lacks variety and forget about the kids having any choices here - there are no kid-sized barbecue meals, only dry burgers and mac & cheese. Worth a trip just for the ribs!
Be careful! Not what you'd expect!.
The major drawback to this bbq is that the meat is separate from the sauce, resulting in a dry sandwich with no character. Having to pour on your own (cold) sauce probably won't keep you comin' back either.
To die for.
We've been traveling to Shorty's Pit Bar-B-Q since they first opened in 1977. We've lived in the south and have NEVER found Bar-B-Q that even comes close to Shorty's. Absolutely the VERY BEST
