WRONG! this was the second we received re-cooked so called fresh cut fries. If you put these on the menu make it right! The beef brisket was good.

My husband is a huge BBQ and ribs fan. We had heard good things about Backyard Grill and were not disappointed! The ribs were tender and juicy. I had the brisket, which had obviously been slow cooking for quite some time and was delicious - not stringy or tough at all! The sauces are also quite good, although my husband... More

Heard good things about this place and happened to be near for dinner, gave it a shot. This was great! got there and there was no wait at all to order -- only took a few minutes to get my half rack ribs and sweet potato fries -- I thought I'd be trying the bbq sauces but I had eaten... More

I had the 1/2 rack of ribs, spicy mac & cheese and chili. All had great flavor and portions were plentiful. My girlfriend had the Brisket with potato salad and SDSU ice cream. She loved her food also and we both were full when when finished. Good service, tasty food with great smokey flavor and all at a fair price.

Four of us ate at the Backyard Grill for the first time last night. Each of us chose a different combo plate. Everyone was pleased with their choices. My pulled pork sandwich was one of the best I have ever had, flavorful and moist, and it was stuffed with meat. I loved the bun it came on, because it was... More

We had planned on having lunch for my husband's birthday at Famous Dave's, but someone suggested this place. The food was excellent. It does literally fall off the bone. We enjoyed the more laid back atmosphere and the ambiance wasn't as loud as Famous Dave's can be. The portions are unreal. You get your money's worth here. The delicious aroma... More

I went for an early lunch and had the pulled pork sandwich. The sandwich had a lot of meat in it and the 2 sides were generous portions; it was more than I would normally have for a lunch. I have gone 3 times and each time the counter staff are very pleasant. All 4 times I went my order... More

I am a big Famous Dave's fan, but I love Backyard Grill, and I love that they are locally owned and not a chain. I've had their pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches, and they are smoky, tender shreds of meat in a flavorful soft bun. Get the fresh cut fries - not frozen, with a tantalizing hint of sweet....

After a couple more visits, I need to downgrade the Backyard Grill, one degree from my previous ranking. Pretty much across the board, but mostly due to the service category.
