Nice Meet and Greet

I met friends for lunch last week at Backstreets. Nice atmosphere and the food was excellent. They don't really have very good seating for large groups. We had to sit at separate tables. We all had something different and we were all pleased with our orders.

Awesome food and friendly staff. Wait time on a Thursday night about 15 minutes. Asparagus Soup is the best ever. Grilled Chicken Salad was great. Ate with my sister on a visit. Will return.

I love going to backstreets! Brian and Suzanne are excellent owner/operators and really create a family feel. The bartending staff is phenomenal and knows your drink by the second time you come in. This is not a college bar, but a bar for everyone of all ages to enjoy. The food is excellent!

A friend introduced me to Backstreets because it's one of her favorite restaurants. We tried a large sampling of menu items, and it was all tasty. It was a fun place!

This is the Cheers of Hickory NC. If you are new to Hickory, you'll not be without friends after a visit or two to Backstreets! Brian and Kevin, two super bartenders, will remember your favorite beverage after several visits. Get to know the regulars and you'll have friends for life. This is not a typical pub food place. You'll be... More

My husband loves their salads and I love their soups. The chef is excellent. I eat here more for lunch and have learned that a bowl of soup is very filling. I can't eat much fat; as a result, there usually are two out of the 4 or 5 soups that are broth based. What other restaurant has so many... More

Our food was very good, specifically the soup, nachos (large portion!) and quesadillas. The decor was inviting and the service was very friendly and attentive. Excellent neighborhood hang out without the chain feel. Will definitely return.

I've eaten here many times with family and friends, as well add getting take-out, and their food, especially their bar-type items are excellent. They have some of the best chicken wings in town. I always get them extra crispy with sauce on the side, and they're consistently great. Their Reuben sandwich is rich and delicious. The soups are usually very... More

When visiting Hickory for a college reunion, a party of six alums gathered at Backstreets for a late dinner. Two of the folks are regulars at this restaurant and they guaranteed us all a great meal. They were absolutely correct. I had the Backstreet Salad which was fresh and plentiful; my husband had the day's special--a grilled salmon in maple... More
