Laid back atmosphere. Best burgers in town. Served how you like them. Hot and fresh right off the grill

The food was decent, but the building needs major maintenance. It felt dirty and the air vents had mold on them. This place probably needs a complete remodel.

Don’t pass through here without grabbing a burger and some onion rings from this local restaurant. Have some freshly popped popcorn while you wait for the best burger ever! Great atmosphere and friendly service. One of our favorite places!

We know that if we would like a good hamburger, Back Forty is the place. They cook it to order and you are never disappointed. We love the fries to and also any appitizer you may want.

This is the place for a great burger and a beer or two. Pinball and billards are also available to enjoy. Casual and relaxed dining. It's not fast food, can take awhile if it's busy, but it's good food.

Great fun friendly atmosphere with awesome food!!! Would highly recommend this for lunch or dinner. Their burgers are the best around and cooked to order. Love their weekend entertainment also.

Extremely limited menu. Servers act as though if you aren't a regular there's no reason to give anymore than minimum attention (likely for good reason). Bacon's not even an option as an add for your burger.

My husband tried the St Patrick’s Day special this time and it was very good. Enjoyed the ham sandwich known as the Miss Piggy. Kids really liked the chicken strips.
