Can't resist The Back Room. Nicest people you'll ever meet. Warm, welcoming atmosphere. Not a lot of food choices for a vegetarian, but the dinner salad with fry bread and a side of their yummy red potatoes is inexpensive, delicious, and goes great with a nice glass of red wine. We come back here again and again.

So thrilled with our meal here...portions that satisfied my 19 year old son (who usually orders two meals!), best bacon ever, quick with the coffee and smiles, very accomodating to a change in my order. There was also a neat, little book on the table for entertainment, with copies to purchase. Nice, downhome feel...our server, Shari, was great, but everyone... More

We were slightly leery of coming here due to mixed reviews. When we arrived, we came into the main entrance which is the cafe and were directed up some stairs near the kitchen which one would not approach unless guided there. From there, we walked through a dining room to the back of the restaurant where we were seated by... More

The staff at the Super 8 Motel suggested we try this restaurant and we knew when we pulled into the parking lot that it must be very good. As we went fairly early (about 5:30) we did not have to wait even though the restaurant almost full. When we left there was at least an hour wait. The food and... More

The brisket is awesome! Very tender, lean and large portions. It had a great smokey flavor and was so tasty, it was wrong to put any sauce on it! Sides were plentiful - heavy dense fry bread, beans and coleslaw. You won't leave hungry. The back room is known by locals to have the best BBQ. Don't come looking for... More

The food is always excellent, the servers willing to go above & beyond to ensure your meal is satisfactory, and the bar is a friendly place. I always take my out-of-town guests to the Back Room knowing that our meal will be great!

We did not have reservations and the place was packed for dinner but did not have to wait long for a table. Our server was the best, very helpful. Quite a menu selection of barbeque stuff and deep roasted chicken. A great combination of great food and service together with a small town atmosphere.

We had the buffet, so the price was great for the quantity. The waitress was nice and good. Seemed to be popular.

Very down home restaurant with simple meals. Ribs were super tender and delicious. Loved their fried bread too!

Yum! I could probably end my review there, but Trip Advisor says I have to type at least 100 characters! Locals invited us to dinner here (probably wouldn't have known about it or gone if not for them) but it was delicious! Home cooked "southern" menu is how I would describe it. Best fried chicken and ribs I have had... More
