Started out with the Ceasar salad and then had the Brisket Dip sandwich and the Ribs with Mac n Cheese. The portion of salad was huge with fresh shaved parmesan cheese. The brisket was juicy, as requested, and full of flavor. Tasted just as it is in the best places in Texas. The ribs were fantastic. Tender with a just... More

Service was good, but Brisket and pork were dry and lacked flavor. Was not worth the money, and we will not be coming back.

We are Texans and we love BBQ! A family member selected this for us and it was fantastic! The Trinity Combination is enough for feed a family of 4, truly! It reminded me more of Tennessee BBQ than of Texas BBQ but regardless, it was great. The BBQ is thick unlike some TX BBQ. The pickles and the hot links... More

Have eaten here several times. Food is always good, staff is always pleasant and your wait for a table during busy times is never very long! Bar is fully stocked with anything you could want. Bartenders are very knowledgeable and never tell you they don't have recipe for your drink of choice. The meats are not drowning in sauce &... More

The Back Forty is one of those pleasant surprises for Out-of-Towners. Our senior tour group from Saratoga,CA (aka The Antiques' Road Show) likes to eat well. We enjoyed the good food, service and atmosphere at our leaders restaurant pick of the day, The Back Forty. The exterior is "down home" but nicely landscaped. There is a big parking lot for... More

Stopped by on a Saturday night. Very crowded, but the very nice hostess directed me to the bar where there was seating available and serve a full menu. The bar was crowded also, but the turnover was quick and I found a table, near the bar with a great view of the guitarist/singer entertaining the patrons. The service was warm... More
