40 minute wait on a Thursday night... Does that tell you anything? We haven't even gotten to our main course yet and I just had to post! All of the staff (hostess, bartender & waitress) were awesome! The appetizers are delicious! Ribeye and ribs just arrived and my mouth is watering! Try it!!!

Great food, not to fond of new building. The new building isn't any bigger than old and the layout is not very customer friendly. Love the food!!

I was in this establishment an hour and did not get to eat. There were a variety of issues, however, the main issue is the service was poor. The kitchen was not responsive, and the wait staff was apathetic.

We were driving through hickory in route to the biltmore and decided to stop for lunch. Went to trip advisor to look for good reviews and what was open. We settled on backstreets because of some reviews as well as it was open. Based on a good number of reviews our expectations were high. Sadly all three dishes and appetizer... More

Had the shrimp with red pepper sauce and my daughter had the beef medallions. We were both completely satisfied with our meals.
