WLS Review! The place is out of the way and in a residential area which was weird at first but once you sit down it was a great atmosphere. They also have outdoor seating. We got soup of the day which was buffalo chicken and blue cheese which was fantastic. We shared an appetizer and got the Jerk chicken and... More

We ate at the new location. My husband loved the pot pie. I had a salad that was really fresh. Homemade dressing was very good. We also had chips and salsa. While the salsa was tasty, the bagged chips weren't great. The service wasn't very good. They weren't very busy, but it still took almost 30 minutes to get our... More

The curry chicken wrap was absolutely delicious!!! The salsa is fantastic, and the service was superb! I would recommend not ordering the chicken caeser wrap, it had a very odd taste to it. Other than that, everything was excellent :)

We visited the Back 40 Urban Cafe and were pleasantly surprised by the food and atmosphere. The food was great, the Cuban Sandwich was outstanding while the Avocado Tostada Special was superb. The wait staff were helpful, efficient, and friendly. Definitely a place we will return to.

Yes, another local restaurant that hits the nail square on the head! (Maybe that's why franchised restaurants are virtually non-existent here on Anastasia Island). Just about the best gumbo I've ever had, and the Back 40 Burger -- wow! Bring a hearty appetite if you're opting for the 'upside down' chicken pot pie, which is another great choice. And the...

I had lunch with the girls today at the new location on A1A. I love that local art is displayed and for sale. The service was great and the menu has a lot of options at an affordable price. I had the Shrimp curry salad and it's large. The shrimp were cooked to perfection and there was plenty of them.... More

I stopped here on my way to the St. Augustine historic district. I order one of their bowls with jerk chicken it was alright. The food was very bland and regular, I could have made this at home and it would have tasted better. The other reviews I read were misleading.

We had a wonderful evening at Back Urban 40. The upside down chicken pot pie was delicious. Our friends enjoyed their wraps. The salads are delicious.

We had a grea meal here this evening. Caesar salad was excellent, gumbo was good and the mojo pork tacos were the BEST. Hillary, our server was friendly, efficient and genuinely concerned about our experience. I highly recommend this tiny "off the beaten path" eatery. We'll be back.

Good food! Caters well to Celian/Gluten Free!!! Quesadilla was good and interesting combo! Jerk chicken was almost "sweet" - very tasty in the Burrito.
