My husband tried the St Patrick’s Day special this time and it was very good. Enjoyed the ham sandwich known as the Miss Piggy. Kids really liked the chicken strips.

We stopped in one evening while visiting the area and my husband ordered the barn buster burger and I had a salad. He said the burger was real good and my salad was so-so. The service was very good as well.

A local institution! Back Forty has been serving great hamburgers for over 30 years. The burger is cooked to order and always delicious. Service is excellent. Try a basket of the free popcorn when you get seated.

Been going here for at least 30 years & still crazy about their burgers- everyone should try a "Barnbuster". Laid back atmosphere with pool tables and darts
