Lunch is included today at Shorty Smalls. Shorty’s story begins back in 1888, when his daddy was just an ornery mining town cook who made the worst pancakes ever. (But, when you’re really hungry, who gives a darn?) When Shorty grew up and inherited the family business, he got rid of all that breakfast nonsense and started making the most delicious lunches and dinners anyone had ever tasted. Folks came from miles around for Shorty’s food, and they still do today!
