“Surprisingly good!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Went here for a change of pace and was very pleased with the barbeque. Simple, good food that is inexpensively priced.

“Excellent Pulled Pork!!!!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

I've eaten BBQ from the Carolinas, Texas, Tennessee, etc. and Back Porch has some of the best I've ever eaten. I've eaten their pulled pork, baked beans and potato salad at least 25 times and it is always excellent. Pork is always tender and very flavorful. Ribs are pretty good as well. Family and friends have tried the brisket, soup beans, ribs and chicken and we've had no complaints. Desserts are excellent as well. When time permits, every few weeks a small group of folks from work drive 20-25 mins each way just to eat lunch. I know everyones palate is not the same, but I highly recommend Back Porch. NOTE: They have excellent breakfast as well!

“Might be to some people's taste”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

But the bbq chicken was overdone to the point of mummification and tasted like they use old motor oil to smoke it over.

“YUUUUMMMMYYYY!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The restaurant is clean, well lit; the food is smokey, flavorful and plentious. The cost is not huge, either.
