Sat on the deck at a Huge Picnic table and our server Niamh made our visit wonderful. Just had some Pulled Pork Sliders and a Veggie Platter, both of which were good. Met some fans, had some fun and got amazing service...Will return.

Went here two nights and sat outside and drank a beer as we listened to U2 practice for their concert. It was a great place to hangout with friends and talk. The location is good. The food looked good and hearty.

The stadium area has awful food, especially inside and at Boston Pizza, but the Back Forty is a gem. I've only been once and man is it good. Smoked sausage sandwich, pulled pork nachos, and huge beers. Also, the staff are great and are not...More

Honestly I don't know, I would suggest contacting Back Forty direct. However there are a number of items on the menu that would be suitable, but they all have sauces so you'd need to check. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful
