Having lunch at Back Street is an experience that most restaurants try to achieve, but most rarely do. It has been a fixture in Riverside for years ... family owned and operated. On a side street near the Brockton Arcade and off Magnolia Avenue, you wouldn't know it is a restaurant unless you have been there before ... and all the cars can be a tip off, too. Known for their great sandwiches (everything from roast beef to turkey and everything in between) and salad bar (beets, carrots, celery, pickles, cucumber salad, Italian garden) and their wonderful desserts ... it is the place everyone in Riverside knows about and loves. The outside patio is lovely ... well shaded by old trees, lots of birds, a great fountain ... never rushed by the attentive staff who are always ready to refill your ice tea (really good) or bring you a dessert ... one of them has been on staff for 27 years and she hasn't lost her lovely smile! A little pricey, yes ... but you get what you pay for and, in this case, you get the best. Highly recommended ... if you are from out of town, find it ... you won't be disappointed.
