Great Food. Super friendly staff and a unique atmosphere. Off the beaten path and not the usual chain type foods. I like this place!

The Thai chicken w/spicy p-nut dressing was very good.....fresh romaine, not bagged!! The desserts were also homemade & the iced tea was fresher brewed. We will be back for sure-

This is a very good restaurant that's "off the beaten" path. Great Cuban Sandwich's at great prices. Nothing fancy, just good food at good prices.

Girlfriends and I dined at The Back 40 Urban Cafe this week and enjoyed it so much. The food is incredible.

It was a quaint home converted to a restaurant. Do not get an appetizer if you are going to order the wet burrito. It is enormous.

So I admit, we thought it was a little sketchy at first, and that our GPS got us lost. We came to the stop sign and were like ... "this can't be it". It's an old house in a neighborhood they've made into a restaurant and let me just say ... IT WAS AMAZING!!. It's definitely different, tables set up... More
