The food is really good and the service is decent. It is a great place for couples or small families.

They had good food but no drink menu which I've never experienced at a restaurant before. My husband asked for med rare steak and it was mostly raw so they took it back. But the food was yummy just didn't like I had to walk to the bar to order a drink!

I was meeting a friend I had not seen for a few years so we wanted a booth that was quiet and would give us an opportunity to talk. We got just that. Each of us ordered a bloody mary and the bar tender did a great job of fixing it just the way we wanted. Food was terrific as... More

Like it says in the title this place is not too bad but I thought the food and drinks were over priced plus not really a great night scene like it was put on to be. I mean if your from hickory and have never been here it's worth a try but if your traveling threw there are better choices.

We had to wait for a table, but once seated we had great service and good food. We had the table closest to the doors into the kitchen, so lots of traffic, but it also gave us the opportunity to access all the staff.

We have been guests of Backstreets for several years. Without a doubt, one of the best local choices in town. I understand the wait can be long at prime times but it is well worth it. Reasonable prices, large portions and quality food every visit. I recommend the homemade soups, salads, chx tenders and blackened ribeye. Ribs are perfect and... More

Picked Backstreets as a venue as a half-way destination for family members from Asheville and Chapel Hill. The photos on line made it look comfortable and quiet so we took a chance for a mini reunion. Service was prompt and food was good. I had left my reading glasses at home and they even provided a pair so I could... More
