Working in town at the courthouse and you could smell the goodness of this place so we decided to check it out man where we glad we did. I got 1/2# of Ribs and pulled pork and I could not finish it. The staff was very nice will go back next time I am in town.

The food at Backstreet is generally pretty good and consistent. The chicken is what I consider to be the best. The meals are prepared quickly and delivered in a timely manner but the only place they lack sometimes is in the area of service and personality.

This restaurant is a local, beloved favorite. They are only open on Thursday Friday and Saturday, and often crowded, but worth the wait. Everything they sell is exceptional. Owner is almost always on the property making sure customers are happy and tummies are full. Very traditional, no frill.

We were in the area at dinner time and noticed a long line of cars at the dive thru. We love bar b q so we parked and went inside. My wife and I both ordered pork plates. The meat was cooked just right and not filled with fat. Stew was good and the slaw chopped up fine and not... More

We did carry out of ribs and sides. They were out of pulled pork. My 15 minutes in the restaurant demonstrated an angry waitress, disorganized service-in the store and the very busy drive through window, and general lack of appreciation for customers. The ribs were cooked well, but had only a light smoke flavor. The sauce was necessary to eat... More

If we eat barbecue it has to be here. We've been several times and they never disappoint! We've tried stew, BBQ, and brisket they're all wonderful.

I'm not a fan of BBQ but they have good stew. The few times I've had the BBQ it was good. It's a very popular place but it's only open at select times. I think it's open every Friday and Saturday but when it's open its always crowded with parking lot full and drive-thru very crowded as well.

If you seek good BBQ don't go anywhere else. All the sides are homemade and service is great. We go every weekend we are in from Atlanta.
