Picking a good happy hour spot that meets your individual requirements and needs is hard. No one place is perfect. Although I have had an experience with substandard service, what’s important is how the establishment resolves the issue and will the issues continue when you return. Giving the establishment the benefit of the doubt is key. Just because you have... More

Always love this place to eat over business. They recently did a remodel and the food is great. Service is wonderful! I think it is the best bbq in town.

Our favorite place for take out for big family gatherings. They catered our daughters' wedding reception. Great service, great food, satisfaction all around. Plus we like to go for Happy Hour.

This is one of our Friday go-to places before a movie. The drinks are a great start, and their regular menu boasts plentiful ribs, chicken and beef. The real deals are their "Junior/Senior" meals. A little less food, and a little less cost. And you get dessert with it. Closest thing to a Florida "early bird" I've found out here.... More

Was staying in the area and wanted something to eat close to our hotel. I expected an okay restaurant with mediocre food and service. The service was excellent (forgot waiters name but he was tall and skinny), very pleasant and attentive. Food was very good and tasty. I had the large piece of brisket (delicious), my wife had the BBQ... More

Visited primarily to take advantage of birthday offer (free meal up to $15). As Seniors, we opted for the Junior/Senior meal ($13.79) consisting of a choice of 3 entrees with two sides and a limited choice of desserts. The waitress had to check to make sure that the Senior meal was eligible for the offer (it was). The entree we... More

Another fine lunch at the Back Forty. We had a birthday lunch for two friends and they enjoyed themselves very much. Food is always top notch. Service was great and they served our birthday cake we brought in with a smile.

The main dining room decor has been modernized and not in a good way. All of the Texas ranch feel is gone and now it just feels like any pleasant dining room. The service is also pleasant but has gotten slower than ever. The menu has been changed and we tried one of the new appetizers: The "loaded' potato skins... More

Just average, not bad at all, but not exciting either. The Q is sauced, light smoke and a bit to soft. Overall a place to go with a large group of fam and kids with a desire for a safe choice.

Their Senior 'Lone Ranger' is great with plenty of very good food at a fantastic low price. We have been going to this restaurant since it opened and have never been dis-satisfied with the food and service. But we were a little shocked with the raise in price of their martini in the bar for $16.00 each. They have a... More
