I have visited Shorty's on several occasions, most in the hopes that this time would be better than the last, but to no avail. The food is greasy and frankly, terrible.

We went on a recommendation of a workmate. Wow, we were genuinely impressed. On a Sunday afternoon, still busy at 4:00 and fast, efficient service. The corn muffins were like warm cake and the barbeque with cole slaw hit the spot.

Got the Lynchburg Lemonade and the Memphis Egg Rolls. Both were great and our waitress was really nice. Would definitely go here again if I'm in Toledo again.
