Delicious

I am absolutely hooked to the baked potato soup! It honestly has to be the best that I've ever eaten! The past few times I have been, along with my small baked potato soup, I have gotten a black and bleu burger. Delicious! I can't wait to go again - tonight!

Very good food and doesn't take forever to get through the drive-through. Good service, delicious food and lots of choices for the carnivore as well as veggie burgers, chicken, etc. Used to think it was a tiny bit more expensive than other burger places but you can get a "regular" combo for less than $6.00. That's a bargain any more... More

No other fast food restaurant compares to the flavor of the food here. Nice variety, great service, and fair prices. We have eaten here many times and always had an excellent meal!

I go here fairly frequently with my coworkers. Around noon the place is always packed, but wait time for food is always short. They have a good variety of fast foods on their menu, grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken, soups, etc. sometimes the burgers are a little greasy, but they taste great. The staff here is very friendly.

What can I say. I work around the square and this is a good hoot place for a decent quality quick lunch. They have chicken and hot dog and chili, salad options for those non burger peeps like me. Love their baked potato soup always good. Creamy cheesy and hot. Best ice tea around!

Back yard burger is a great fastfood burger. I enjoy the Hawaiian Chicken sandwich. The burgers are pretty good but I can't eat like that all the time and BBB usually has a healthy alternative.

Fast easy drive thru buger joint. Waffle fries are really good, so are the chicken sandwiches. Like the blackened chicken with coleslaw on i.t
