a local favorite for many years! good bbq and often some good specials as well. can be very busy on friday or saturday dinnertime. the bar can be almost impossible to get into on friday and saturday evenings as well. decent bbq, prices good and you can choose smaller plates if you're not too hungry!

One of the few places in town to get BBQ. Large portions. Go for the ribs. Corn bread is awesome. Very casual. Nice outdoor seating.

You can tell by the giant trophy on the counter you are in for some excellent barbeque! This is a popular place with the local crowd. If there is a wait, you will get an accurate estimate of the wait time and an electronic device which will light up and buzz when your table is ready. The wait is never... More

I love BBQ and having just moved into this neighborhood was really excited about having this place close to home...walking distance. So was sadly disappointed when I received the combo platter of their pork & beef ribs. Neither had much flavor and the beef was overly fatty. The only really solid flavor was their BBQ sauce, but that should be... More

I was staying just round the corner, so when I walked past the Back Forty Texas BBQ I thought it looked great. I decided to visit that evening but it wasn't as good on the inside as it was on the outside. Food was fine and we didn't have to wait for a table but I think my imagination got... More

We are discovering the world of "Old Fogie Restaurants" and what a deal are they! But you don't have to be an oldster to dine here. For less than $20 I had spareribs, with a great Caesar Salad, lots of veggies, home made bread, cornbread and the best brownie I ever ate. My husband had the prime rib with great... More

I happen to really like good BBQ Texas style. Back Forty is pretty good, but I have had a lot better. It is hard to find in CA. On this occasion I needed take-out for 6 people. I ordered online and everything was ready when I arrived. Very easy process and accurate as well. Did not have to wait at... More

Four of us recently dined at the Back Forty, around Five O'clock on a week day. This was great timing, as we were able to avail ourselves of a lovely, low-cost beer and wine offering in the friendly bar. We took our drinks into the restaurant area, after a very short wait. Three of us ordered the Lone Ranger dinners,... More

The food selection was pretty decent for a BBQ place. Tried the burger and the BBQ chicken meal. Everything was delicious and the staff was very nice. The staff did a great job at setting the vibe of the restaurant but also still having a sense of urgency about the food and drinks.

decent prices, great selection of side dishes (especially for those of us who don't care for the typical baked beans and slaw). I had the prime rib and it was cooked perfectly with a nice smoky flavor and a tasty aus jus and horseradish to dip in. Others in our party said the juicy beef was better than the lean... More
