Food is great and my family loves going here to eat. It has been a local place for a very long time so everyone knows you by name. Good atmosphere.

“Nothing Good to say”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

This is the place for you if a high health rating doesn't matter to you. The food is just average and the service is non existant. If you do decide to eat here, my advice is to change clothes before going anywhere else. Everyone in town will know that you were in Short Sugars due to the greasy smell that lingers on your clothes.

“Lunch Stop in Reidsville”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

Stopped in for lunch to check out the BBQ. Even though they had a big smoking chimney and a stack of wood outside, the BBQ wasn't very smokey. It was good, just not very smokey. The slaw and hush puppies were good.

“Best BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Interior is plain and simple. Ambiance is not the reason to go here. Their barbecue is second to none.

“Looking for authentic NC barbecue?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

For authentic Eastern Style BBQ, Short Sugar's should be on your short list. This is not a chain, but a local Barbecue joint in the small town of Reidsville NC. The restaurant hasn't changed much since it was built in 1949, and that only adds to this whole NC barbecue experience. A chopped BBQ will set you back under $9.00 and will include a generous portion of mouth watering BBQ, hush puppies, french fries and cole slaw. Eastern Style BBQ sauce is on the table and should be the only thing you add to the BBQ. Short Sugar's is only 30 minutes from Greensboro and about an hour and 30 minutes for Raleigh. Short Sugar's Pit Barbecue is the real deal for NC Eastern Style BBQ.
