It's been almost 50 years since "Shorty" Allen opened his first log-cabin-style barbecue restaurant. Though the business changed hands in 1980, the hickory-smoked chicken and ribs, creamy cole slaw, and homemade baked beans remain the same. Consistently good food at affordable prices is only part of the recipe for Shorty's success. Other ingredients include a comfy Western motif, friendly service, and communal dining at long picnic tables, all of which make for a good-timey experience.
