Saturday afternoon found D. and I famished in the middle of running errands. It had been a while since we had BBQ and Mancy’s-owned Shorty’s was right around the corner.
I had my heart/eyes/tummy set on a pulled pork sandwich. Memphis-style! That means covered in cole slaw. A side of fresh cut jalepenos? Why not. Live on the edge!
It was a towering inferno of deliciousness! At some point I got up, walked through the dining room with my arms above the elbow raised (picture a surgeon walking into surgery), in order to clean up in the ladies room. D. had an even larger mess with his order of ribs. All worth it… thanks to our pleasant waitress for supplying extra napkins, without having to be asked.
Pro tip: Get the mac+cheese for a side. It is really some of the best in the city.
Toledo is lucky to have so many great locally-owned BBQ joints… be it Shorty’s, Deets, City BBQ… am I missing any others?
