We had just completed riding down Main Street for the final days Bike week and while traveling south on Ridgewood Ave or US-1 one of our riders suggested BBQ. I was on the lookout for a Sonny's or something and we rode up to Backyard BBQ. We pulled in and saw there was abt 3 cars parked outside. I made... More

So there have been 2 traditional BBQ places in the area for a while; Dustins and Sonnys. Backyard Boys is basically the same. In order to compare, we have ordered the "family feast" options from all 3 restaurants. With minor changes, the food is basically the same. Wholesale BBQ is not bad, but it's exactly that, wholesale.

The front of the building is unassuming and sits back from the street almost hidden from view. Once you get inside and smell the smoke and see the BBQ you realize you have arrived in food heaven, from the fried mac and cheese, sweet potatoes, bbq beans and the baby back ribs with 5 sauces to choose from or just...

Service was fast and friendly. Food was hot and fresh but ribs and pulled pork we're pretty tough. We were there for an early supper. Ladies room smelled like what i imagine the men's room at a dive bar smells like but it appeared clean. Oh and they have perfect onion rings!

Wife and I both got the baby back rib dinner to go. Nice cut of ribs, but, the ribs tasted parboiled and possibly grilled with no smoke or BBQ flavor. What a shame to treat a nice cut of meat like this. Our order taker asked what type of sauce we would like, we told her, and I asked just... More

Backyard Boys will be a very familiar format and concept for anyone familiar with southern Bar B Que restaurants that are friendly and opened, down home venues. That means totally picnic bench, working man floor plan and atmosphere and a large open barbecue fir pit. Seating is at your discretion and waitresses quickly visit your table to take drink orders...

Had lunch here today. Chance find and really happy we stopped. Really quaint place with lots of locals (always a good sign) The food was amazing. Good sized portions and great value. The fried mac & cheese is incredible. Would happily have eaten a couple of pounds of that. Had to shake the sugar off the corn nuggets but other... More
