“Down Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Have eaten there a couple of times and it is excellent and always crowded. The food is some of the best 'home' cooking I've ever had at a restaurant and the service is hard to beat. I get a kick out of the fact that they offer a 'bean' bar in addition to the salad bar. The daily specials are a good value and the desserts are not to be missed. If you are in the Sinton area, this restaurant is a treat.

“Home Cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

You can't get any better home cooked food unless you go to Grandmother's house! Never disappointed and I have eaten here for more than 10 years!

“excellent for this neck of the woods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

Loved the staff, the selections - this is not health food - but the catfish was delicious and fresh. The prices reasonable. Loved the sides and the cookies. Great stop.

“Best Restaurant in Sinton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

This place is a local favorite with the best food and service in town. Excellent steaks, seafood, and burgers. Fresh and well maintained salad bar as well as a hot bean bar with cornbread. Always a wait at lunch. Daily specials are a great deal and the desserts are homemade and outstanding. Go for the Coconut Creme Pie if they have it. Bread is freshly baked daily, including the burger buns. Can't miss with this place. Been going here for years.

“Great home cooking - area favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

We've been eating at Back Street for years - always good with super service and a big menu. They also have a chalk board full of specials of the day at VERY reasonable prices. Chicken fried steak is great, fried seafood is great, steaks, burgers, chicken - just about everything anyone would want. Kiddie menu too.

PLUS a huge salad and bean bar that is included with every meal, oh yeah, PLUS the tasty big yeasty rolls fresh baked. They have several cobblers for dessert. If you go for dinner, be sure to order your cobbler as soon as you sit down - they sell out quickly at times!

Diners will see a lot of the locals, even the Sheriff at times in his hat, boots, and cowboy shirt. This is one of our favorite places to eat.
