This is an update on a review that might still be out there somewhere. I used to LOVE Shorty's and would tell everyone I saw to check it out. But now it has new owners and it's just not the same. Some things are still great - like the rocket salad and quacamole. But the signature pizza pies just seem to be missing something. I don't know if they cut the quality on the ingredients but I've given them at least 3 tries to get it right and might have to give up. I wish them the best and hope they figure it out but definitely miss the vibe and taste of the old Shorty's I knew and loved.

Not just your local pizza place

Ok - I am a huge fan and food addict. This place rocks. The pizza's are art and the menu items are insanely good.

I would suggest any new menu item or what the staff suggests. Try something new - you will be happy.

These guys also have a small yet smart beer selection. They also know how to pour a real drink.

Cookies - plan ahead and get dessert. So don't over eat plan before you order for something after your main meal. Key lime pie - is something that brings tears to my eyes of joy.

Go Go Go Go now - and eat something - you are getting skinny

Batting .300

So Shorty's managed to squeeze in a whole lot of talent into a tiny spot off north druid and people found out. First time we visited food and service rocked, we loved it and swore we would be back. Second time we were sat outside in their little patio area and literally sat for 20 min. I asked a server if we could get some menus and drinks and she told me she I was not my server. I explained the situation and she said she would go in and find out who are server was supposed to be. She came back out PISSED and asked if we were ready to order. Food was dropped off without comment, drinks were never refilled. I had to go in after the meal to track down our check. Bad bad. A few months later we try again and things were only slightly better. We waited around 15 min. (again we had to go outside b/c of the crowd) but this time the girl was nice about it and we understood she was hustling. Thing is we saw two tables be sat and later leave because of no service. One incident turned awkward because the server ran after two women and stopped them in the patio area and said ""hey wait y'all had drinks"" the ladies said "" a twenty is on the table we waited for a half hour and never saw you."" So I think Shorty's is simply a victim of its own success. We will go to Shorty's for lunch or early in the week dinners out because the food is really really good....but never again if they are crowded.

I heartily recommend Shortys!!

I had anticipated a good meal, but was unprepared for the unique menu items my friend and I ordered. The salmon was mouth-watering and the mashed potatoes were like something I've never tasted. And the Creme Brulee was the best I've ever tasted.

Perfection

My experiences at Shorty's have been nothing short of excellent! They have every kind of topping in the world and combinations that only a true pizza connoisseur could concoct! The best part about the menu is the variety of well-prepared food. The melts are delicious, as well as the salads. And definitely don't forget to order one of their giant chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Aside from the well-executed menu, the service is always outstanding and attentive (I don't know what the CS contributor was thinking when he wrote about that). I must also mention that I was impressed by the cleanliness of the restaurant as well. I would recommend Shorty's to anyone!

Try the guacamole

Shorty's is a casual, friendly spot where you get to have a side of rock star with your pizza--all the signature pies are named after musicians.

They specialize in thin crust, wood-fired goodness. You can choose one of their signature pies or design your own. The thing I like best about Shorty's is the unlimited combinations of fresh & unusual ingredients--carmelized onions, pesto, toasted walnuts, gorgonzola, etc. I'll be honest - I don't love pizza as much as everyone else seems to, so I appreciate being able to create my own weird combination on a personal sized pizza and let everyone else feast on the more conventional versions. They even offer a cheeseless pizza (the Ravi Shankar) and a few versions of white pies (like the Declan McManus--my favorite).

If you aren't in the mood for pizza at all, no worries. They also have a terrific assortment of salads & several sandwiches & entrees. Draft beer selection is small, but well chosen, and they rotate seasonally. And the guacamole is made to order. Good stuff.

Best guacamole and mouth-watering dessert pizza!

My husband and I are addicted to this wonderful place. Being real food snobs (we'll fly to the West Coast to get good ""slow food), we have our favorite menu items, and always try to save room for the dessert pizza with freshly sliced applies and real homemade whipped cream. The secret to the great guacamole is that they make each serving individually....we like to sit at the bar and watch the guy make it, full of avacado chunks with the wonderful flat bread drizzled with EV olive oil! And the crabcakes are perfect! I have my favorite East Coast crabcake source (Legal Seafoods), and Shorty's cakes are just as good or better. Not too much breading, and of course you never have to ask the waitress to bring a lemon slice. (We're amazed at how many restaurants in Atlanta don't serve a lemon slice with seafood!)There's so much talk about Shorty's pizza (truly great, of course), but don't ignore the entrees like the cedar planked salmon. And we have never found any brown lettuce edges in Shorty's generous salads. Only the best and freshest ingredients is what puts Shorty's at the top of our list.
