Review of The Back Porch

The Back Porch
Ranked #3 of 57 Restaurants in Kilgore
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Serving our community for over 25 years. Jackie and Vicki have built a legend at The Back Porch. The Clayton's have owned the Back Porch since 1990 but the history goes back to the 1960"s when the business was a pool hall owned by the infamous Harry Crow. Starting off with burgers being their specialty they use only fresh unfrozen meat, and the menu was originally very simple; big and little burgers and large homemade fries. Now the menu has a large variety of delicious entrees to choose from. GREAT FOOD NOT FAST FOOD Complimentary beans and hush puppies while you wait for your meal. The Clayton's were born and raised in Kilgore...just good down-home people serving the community they love. Winner of 2015 EAST TEXAS MUSIC Awards for BEST VENUE with live music every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

Locally owned and operated, the Back Porch is serving good down-home food in a very original atmosphere.
If you are tired of Mc Donalds&Co., go to the Back Porch!

Excellent hamburgers and french fries. Beans and hushpuppies were complementary and very good. Great Restaurant.

Clearly a local hangout. Everyone seemed to know each other but I didn't feel like a stranger. Delicious big cheese burger cooked to perfection with crispy fries. I also enjoyed the hit, crisp hush puppies which kept conning while waiting on my main meal.

There were 4 of us and we ordered an order of chicken strips, a burger, a hot dog, and one of my daughters got chips and salsa. Everything was really good. We were pleased with our food choices.

Perhaps the burgers are good, but the breakfast was terrible. So, my advice... go for lunch or go elsewhere.
