Good conversation, great history, and even better hot dogs.
Shorty’s Famous Hot Dogs has been a go-to hangout for Wake Forest locals for more than 100 years. Shorty’s originally opened back in 1916 and is still run by the same family that started it all. As the longest-running restaurant in the area, we’re committed to serving our community for many years to come.
All of our hot dogs, sandwiches, and burgers are grilled to perfection and topped with fresh ingredients. Plus, our secret recipe homemade chili tastes great on just about anything! Stop by today, you’ll be glad you did.
See you soon,
Chris Joyner, Owner
