“Excellent food in a homey atmosphere"”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

I went to here with my family after reading all the other excellent reviews on tripadvisor. We ordered the the hush puppies, loaded fries with beef brisket, and the chilli. All three were excellent. We also ordered burgers and 1 child ordered the chicken fingers. All of the food was fresh, (not processed meat or frozen patties), served on fresh kaiser rolls. We did not have room for dessert, but our server did mention that the desserts were homemade. Next time we go I will order ribs or beef brisket. They did bring to our table a condiment server with 5 different styles of BBQ sauce which they make themselves. It seems to be a famiy run business. Our servers were in their teens, but very polite, professional and friendly. They also had many choices on the childrens menu, all reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we plan on returning again soon.

“I love this little BBQ place”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Back Road BBQ is in an out-of-the-way location but this only adds to its charm. It is a cozy, little family owned and run restaurant. The food is good, basic comfort food. The pulled pork sandwich is delish.

“Awesome beef brisket. Go! Enjoy! Tell your friends!”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

This is the kind of place that people need to patronize so it can be there long term. I say this because it is out of the way for most people - but worth the drive when you want a quick, simple meal. Not to mention it is darn good bbq. While the pork is good, the beef brisket is awesome. Baked beans well above average. Nice friendly staff. I told the owner he needs to sell just-meat take-away. It's great to pull from the frig and have an at-home sandwich. The place is in Croton, not Flemington. In the old Etzel's Restaurant - you'll know the name only if you are a long term local.

“More Hushpuppies, please!”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

Great Food, Great Location, Great Service! We've visited twice. Had the 1/2 rack rib platter the first night and the cajun pasta special tonight. Will need to order extra hushpuppies next time -they are magical. Hubby had the sampler platter tonight and the chicken was outstanding. The brisket & pulled pork were wonderful and the mac & cheese creamy delicious. From our family to Back Yard BBQ's - we hope you're around for a long long time - we'll be regular visitors!!
