We've been in the Killington area seeking a great dinner. We found it! BEST steak in a restaurant ever. Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned. Perfectly accompanied by garlic dill potatoes and summer squash. Delicious sampler of barbecue, each meat seasoned slightly differently, all cooked to perfection. We listened to one of the owners describe specials and beers with equal authority --- this is a woman who knows her business! Unpretentious, but take a look at quality. From the starters to the mains to the dessert list to the single malts impressive,.

As the name implies, it is easy to miss this restaurant back behind the intersection of routes 4 and 100 south of Killington. We had dinner on the recommendation of the host of the Cedarbrook resort across the street and were delighted with the meal. Baked gouda cheese with a raspberry chipotle compote opened up the taste buds, and the planked smoked Scottish salmon was tender and richly delicious. A few days later we returned for lunch (served weekends only in the summer) and enjoyed the complex mushroom soup, a vegetarian delight, followed by a pulled pork sandwich with baked beans on the side. Both were as tasty as any we've ever had. BBQ is a specialty and the servings are very generous. The décor is ancient eclectic, on the dark side, with many local touches. It is important to let the hostess know you have arrived so she can assign a waitress; otherwise you may sit for awhile.

The place doesn't look like much on the outside, but we've learned to never judge a book by it's cover!
Inside was clean & beautiful!
The employees were very friendly, & it was by far the best food we enjoyed in all of Vermont!
The BBQ was delicious!
It's location is an asset too.
Traveling on bikes, our group of four pulled over @ the corner gas station to find out where to eat lunch. I noticed the smoker out front of The Back Behind as we slowly passed it to pull over.
We are all happy we tried it!
Excellent all the way around!
If we lived closer we'd be regulars!!

We went there with our kids there and had a really good time. This is not our first time there and we will keep coming back.
We all had different meals and everything was good from the Fish and Chips to the 2 varieties of ribs or the steak or the pulled pork.
The desserts were good as well.
It's a few minutes away from the Killington Access Road but worth driving the extra miles.
I saw a few review about bad service but our experience has always been very good and the owner always makes a point of coming to check on the table to see if everything is fine.
