The barbeque is excellent and the sides are great too. If they have black bean soup... you have to have a bowl. If someone in your group wants a salad instead, watch out... the salads are HUGE and the dressings are home made. We love to get wings as an appetizer! Overall a fun family place to have some barbeque.... More

We went here for dinner when another restaurant was full and got a wonderful surprise. Excellent BBQ menu with large helpings and low prices. Service was so great I never even noticed my glass being refilled. We were greeted and seated right away even though they were doing a brisk business. Our server thanked us as though we were family... More

My husband and I ate here after spending the afternoon in Beatrice. We had eaten here before, but it had been several years so we decided to go back. I can't remember the name of our waitress, but she was an older lady and she was super friendly! I had the cod fillet and my husband had the pulled pork... More

Whilst they have excellent ribs and pulled pork and those things one expects at a BBQ restaurant, on Fridays they always have a walleye fillet special. I live for it.

Visited on a Friday night and they were very busy so service was a little slow but food was prepared very good. Their special was walleye and it was delicious. Pulled pork and brisket sandwich's also very good. Not fine dining but very adequate.

Friendly service for take out, order was correct and hot when I picked it up. Chicken salad sandwich was good, bread it was on was unremarkable, would've been better toasted as an option. I had the pulled pork sandwich & so the bun wouldn't get soggy they put the sauce on the side(smart thinking guys) however, the BBQ sauce snob... More

I was traveling thru Beatrice and used the Garmin to find Back Alley BBQ. I did not want another packaged meal(McDonalds, KFC, Wendy's, etc.) It was adequate, the food barbecue pulled pork was well cooked and a good portion and the fries were okay. Service was very good and quick. Don't let the outside fool you. If you are hungry... More

I liked the old downtown location better. It was cozy and quiet. It is now in the old VFW (I think) and the atmosphere is not as nice, as it is more of a cafe type venue and noisy. The staff work their tails off making sure you were pleased with your food and service. They are almost running around... More

Ate here for lunch. Chicken salad was great. Very nice employees. Great wine from a local Nebraska winery served here. Pulled pork is delicious too!
