A Wake Forest Staple Since 1916

“There aren’t enough words. This place is the best at what it sells. I was raised eating at Shorty’s and hope that one day I can raise my own, on the very same bar stools!”


“This is my favorite place EVER to get hot dogs and burgers. The staff is like family to me. I’ll be gone for years and come home and they will be there to greet me with open arms. Family friendly and awesome food and service.”


“Incredible food and employees that can make your ordinary day one that is filled with laughter. You will love this business. I promise!”


“This is just the kind of place you want your kids to say they grew up coming to. There’s just something so special about the whole package of this place.”
