I love brisket. It was OK at best. A bit dry and portion a bit small. Bartender was great. Service good. Corn bread great. I would give it one more try. The place looked good. Well kept.

Ordered the Rio Grande plate ... Pricing was fair and enough for 3 people. Great taste, excellent service and seems like many locals goes to this restaurant. Friendly atmosphere. Great food but can be better

We were a group of 22 ladies for lunch. We had a limited menu but food, service and general experience were super. Yes, we had reservations so the staff was ready but over- the- top service---super polite and friendly. Food was really good.

The BBQ is ok and the sides are good. Lots of space for large groups. Nice bar area to catch a drink and watch a game. Great selection of food.

I remember way back when when Back 40 was in a prior location and its decor was more honky tonk saloon. With its current location there is more ranch house vibe. The place is large with plenty of space between tables. Plenty of parking too. Our server Sabrina did an admirable job making our dinner very enjoyable. BBQ is a... More

Had a great time at this restaurant. They are all nice people. The bbg is great. My favorite was the bbq turkey sandwich. I love the atmosphere also. Also have been to the bar and it was fun also.

This an average kind of place, except for the layout: a large, rambling, western-themed room with lots of nooks and side rooms. The service was pretty good and the noise level made conversations possible. The food was okay but nothing to rave about.

Visited from SoCal on a Friday evening around 5p.m. April 29th, and we were seated right away. We waited 20 minutes for someone to take a drink order or be acknowledged. My husband was on his way to get management and waitress in our area cut him off and apologized and appeared at our table shortly thereafter. She was nice... More
