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
The food was superb! It was a mouth-watering experience. The service was awesome and we’re planning to go back next week.
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'm a shorty – Love the Elvis pizza without anchovies, wood fired salmon, good wine list well priced. Great vibe with friendly people at the bar.
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.
Woo Tang is where it's at. – My mom was in town from MA and I brought her here for lunch one day and she said it was some of the best pizza she's ever had - now that's a rave review. The quality of the ingredients comes through in the richness of the final product, absolutely delicious. They have a bunch of house pizzas to choose from with fun names - i get the woo tang (on the back of the bar menu) buffalo chicken with blue cheese crumbles and celery - must try!
Best Salmon on Earth – Shorty's has the absolute best Cedar Plank Salmon in the Entire World.!!!!! I've been there every night for the last 2 weeks. The atmosphere and the food are incredible. I highly recommend Shortys.
Another Great Pizza Joint! Yum! Worth The Drive! – Yes we are pizza snobs. And we have it down to about six places we live by, eating that is. Last month, we finally discovered Chicago Nancy's, after reading glowing reviews on CitySearch. And yes, they have the best deep-dish Chicago pies in the ATL. But our latest find, Shorty's, is now on our list. And usually, if they don't deliver, we don't bother. But this one is well worth our drive, from our South Buckhead home. It's in the Toco Hill's area, near another favorite, Bagel Palace. Shorty's has the goods on wood-fired pizza's. The crusts are perfect, and the toppings, are just that, the tops. Our favorite is the caramelize onions, artichoke's, and homemade Italian sausage. Oh goodness. A greater started is the chunky guacamole on housemade flatbread. And all the salads are terrific also, with the house Italian dressing. Service is right on, and we don't mind this drive for a great pizza/
