I love BBQ, but this just does not it for me. the seating is very tight. I think this is more of a take out place. The BBQ sauce is okay. I like the sausage. The corn bread is very good:)

Back Forty has very good ribs, a small place but good dinners. We like the pork ribs. Full meal, lots of food. Prices in mid range.

I visited this restaurant for the first time to take out Texas style BBQ. I selected the party pack combo which contained both pork and beef ribs as well as beans, potato salad and french bread. The ribs were good and meaty and side dishes were well prepared. Although I did not eat in, I noticed the restaurant was rather... More

Casual atmosphere and great food. We go every few weeks when we need a BBQ fix. A nice neighborhood restaurant.

We got the Texas toothpicks for an appetizer and they were not that good. The sliders and tri tip sandwich were pretty good. The mac and cheese and cole slaw were good, but definitely not homemade. Our server wasn't friendly and we waited a long time to have our order taken when the restaurant was practically empty.

I have been coming here for years and their BBQ food is the best ever! Their BBQ sauce is so good that I could just drink it. They've won many awards for their sauce and you could also buy some.

Back Forty is a great place to eat. It's not a big restaurant but comfortable. BBQ chicken salad is my favorite. Always get your dressing on the side.

We live nearby and tried Back Forty when we first moved here 16 years ago. Loved it from the start. Excellent BBQ. Friendly people. Great value in "Lone Ranger" meals - even includes dessert. Atmosphere is country-ish, not fancy. Farm items on walls.
