My family and I stumbled across this little restaurant by accident. What a terrific find. Everyones' food was delicious! This is a great family restaurant. I returned the next week to eat here again to see if the first time was a fluke. NOPE. Still as tasty as before. This will now be one of our regular spots. The whole... More

I'm a local here in St. Augustine and I've been hearing people rave about The Back 40 Urban Cafe so I figured I'd give it a shot. Boy, were those people right! This little restaurant is an old house turned into a great little spot! Food is superb! Try the wet burrito, it will change your life!

My family and I just came to St. Augustine for the long, holiday weekend. Based on other reviews, we went to try it out for dinner, and I'm SO happy we did! My hubby got the special mojo pork tacos, I got the chicken curry wrap and our son got the cheese quesadillas. We all split the mud pie for... More

Stopped in one rainy evening and it was packed. The service was quick and pleasant. The jerk chicken quesadilla was very good a nice balance of spicy with sweet. Also had the fish tacos they had great flavor but too much filling on top.

On an already dark and dreary cold day we walked into back 40 which came highly recommended by family members. It was absolutely freezing. I kept my jacket on the entire time and still had chattering teeth. We ordered the french onion soup special to keep warm. It had added mushrooms and was very tasty. None of the bite you... More

I would definitely recommend a meal at Back 40. The patio in the back is great, but the inside has a nice atmosphere too. The food is great, and priced very reasonably.

Our family of six found this hidden gem at the last minute. From the funky colored twinkle lights, to the fun decor, and the enticing fragrances coming out of the kitchen, we knew we found a great place. Yum! Wonderful food, delicious and fresh, healthy combinations. Loved the Island Bowl with jerk chicken..son-in-law enjoyed the Wet Burrito...huge portions. Reasonable prices.... More

The food was great. Lots of interesting choices on the menu. I had the meatloaf burger with chips and salsa. My wife had a jerk chicken sandwich. The meatloaf was good, but highly recommend the jerk chicken. Decent sized portions. Prices were also very reasonable. I have to mark them down because of the service. I couldn't tell for sure,...
