“Deciding is the biggest problem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

The Back Porch has excellent burgers. These burgers are the best around here. But then there is the Patty Melt which is huge and just melts in your mouth. So which do I choose? Then there is the homemade potato chips with queso. OMG!!! Maybe I can get half of a burger, half of a patty melt and half of the potato chips/queso. Works for me! This is a favorite spot for locals and after work gatherings. There is volley ball in the summer....complete with sand, ball and net!! Also, while you wait for your food to be prepared, have a bowl of pinto beans and hotwater cornbread....but be careful not to fill up on them before your food arrives. The beans and cornbread are really good. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

“Local favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

The Back Porch has been apart of Kilgore for many years. The hamburgers have a good homemade taste to them and you get complimentary beans and hushpuppies with a purchase. Those hushpuppies are de-lish! A few years ago the sand volleyball court was converted to an open patio with a bar. They have live music and karaoke and it's a great place for class reunions, girls night out, or just to hang out with friends or make new friends. The Back Porch is a unique place for Kilgore and that's probably why it has been around for so long.

“Great Family Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is a great local restaurant. The food is good and the prices are great, especially for families. Nice, relaxing atmosphere, just like you'd find on your own back porch.
