This had not been open very long. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was very good. The streak was done the... More

My husband and son are very picky about their hamburgers. Me not so much, but they think Backroads Grill has the best burgers in the valley. They always get the huge burger.

They offer salads, barbecue and sandwiches. It is a nice friendly place. The food was good. We enjoyed having one of the owners sit and visit with us.

The restaurant is pleasant and their burgers and mexican food are pretty good. Their green chili is wonderful. They used to brew their own beer but no longer do so. They do have a couple of beers on tap.

we tried to check out this place, but never got served. After several minutes, we never even got a menu. We left, but I'm not sure anyone noticed!

This is a locals hangout. We were the only customers that the waitress did not know. Service was quick and friendly and the hamburger was juicy. They have a wider menu and brew their own beer.
