Tex-Mex type food, salads, steak, big fat burgers. They put a little something extra in that makes it great. They have a simply fantastic lime grilled chicken Friday and Saturday night that keeps you begging to go back. Maybe the wonderful service helps, too. I know I keep going back.

Best BBQ in the valley, hands down! Friendly staff and great service. Triple pork sandwich cannot be beat and the longhorn combo for BBQ is the only way to go! They even make their own salad dressing.

Back Porch rocks! We go every Friday night (sometimes Saturday too) because the food is amazing and the service is excellent. You feel like you are part of the Back Porch family as soon as you walk in. The menu has something for everyone, and everything is so yummy! I always recommend Back Porch if anyone is looking for a... More

We arrived on 5/10/2014 around 5pm. When we entered, a hostess person (I guess that is what she was as she never bothered to introduce herself) anyway, this girl came up all flustered and said that maybe we should just sit over by the window or something because they were expecting some large groups and she didn’t know how long...

As I said when we spoke on Saturday night, I am very sorry for the confusion you received upon trying to be seated, therefore, not wishing to eat at our restaurant. I understand your frustration, as the seating issue at the time was limited due to the multiple reservations that were coming in shortly and the many customers that were... More

Being from Texas.... This restaurant definitely goes above and beyond alllll expectations!!! The menu is filled with anything you could ever want from BBQ brisket to wraps to appetizers including sliders which won't break your budget at $2.50 each. Their mouthwatering 1/2 lb burgers are freshly ground on premises... Locally owned and operated everything is made from scratch..... Absolutely the... More

Our family stopped here for dinner on a Sunday. We arrived at 5:01, right when dinner is supposed to start but there were already a few tables seated and eating. We were immediately seated and greeted by our very nice server. We ordered chips and salsa for an appetizer, my husband the smoked chicken, our daughter the fish and chips,... More

So I ordered to go, when I picked the food up the waitress was very friendly. I walked pack to my hotel and when my family and I sat down to eat I couldn't believe the small amount of pasta I got! And it's a vegetable pasta at that--most restaurants try to fatten it up a little due to no... More

This restaurant is not in the main part of this small town, but well worth seeking out. I honestly have never had a better steak in my life...anywhere. So often when you ask for rare or medium rare you get medium well... "heath issues, you know." The prices are commensurate with an upscale meal, but the portions are HUGE so... More

We ate here twice while in Jacksonville as it was near our hotel. The portions are huge, but the food is good and atmosphere is friendly with a local vibe. They have nice local wine to choose from. The first night we ate in the dining room and the next night we ate in the bar so that we could... More
