Good BBQ

We go here often and like the atmosphere in the bar (music after 6 pm on weekends). I'm a snob when it comes to BBQ having grown up in the South, but this place is worthy of a four star rating.

We reserved the restaurant for dinner for six. It was a Golden jubilee celebration. Everyone was impressed with everything. Starting from reservation to hospitality and serving, we were really attended to. The service was exceptional and food was great.

My friend and I were visiting the area when we decided to try the Back Forty and we are glad we did. There was a little bit of a wait but dinner arrived rather quickly. My friend had pork ribs and I had the hot link. The servings were huge! They gave me like 4 sliced links and my friend... More

This restaurant was within walking distance of the Embassy Suites. I tried to order the prime rib, but was told they were out. Someone else dinning close by said the prime rib is very good, but is sold out most of the time they tried to order it. My wife had the ribs and she said they were ok, not... More

We find the food here is very very good along with the service - - and we go here very often. We think their Pork Ribs are the best in the area. The large bar can get a little crowded - early. Drinks are great and at a very good price. Their Senior menu (called Lone Ranger) is priced 'right'... More

This place is unfortunately not a good restaurant. I was told to try their supposedly great sandwich of the day, their streak sandwich...It wasn't good at all, the cheese is generic as everything else, but if your a generic person you don't mind, right? ask the servers they don't seem to care, generic food served by generic servers who don't...

We found the ribs and other so-called BBQ meats just barely average, but the scalloped potatoes were absolutely the best I have ever eaten. Service was average. Location convenient off the 680 north.

Came here thinking that we were in store for a good rib meal. Really, how had is it to mess up pork ribs. Well, they managed to do it. They were very tasteless with no seasoning. Sauce was boring and added nothing. Service was good. Atmosphere was good, but didn't make up for the lack of flavor. Cornbread was good.... More

Don't bother! Wasted calories! Only thing worth eating is the garlic mashed potatoes and the corn bread. Baby back ribs were boring. My ribs are sooooo much better. Perhaps I can give them lessons? Really DO NOT BOTHER, unless you want corn bread and garlic mashed.

I am not big not BBQ, specially Texas style, but was I surprised. This place has to be one of the best. I came here for lunch with a co- worker. I ordered the combo with has the Kobe rib and the Tri- tip. It was delicious. It also came a Salad and mixed vegetables. I love this place!
