We always eat here. Donna our server is amazing. Portions are large, cooked hot and to order and very filling. Great pancakes, French toast. Bacon is thick and crisp. Eggs Benedict when they are the special are a must. Hash browns to die for.

The price is right for what you get. Ordered the broasted chicken 🍗 including the fried bread 🍞, which was very flavorful. Also ordered a small sausage pizza, which was okay but nothing to rave about. My server was friendly and prompt.

The most AMAZING chicken & ribs you will EVER eat! My only complaint is that there are no mashed potatoes and gravy! They serve plain, unseasoned boiled red potatoes...yuck! But they make up for it with their delicious fry bread & honey butter!

Great service, fantastic fry bread, great country ribs, fantastic fry bread, coleslaw a bit dry, and did I mention the great fry bread? If you get an order of fry bread before dinner, be prepared to take home leftovers.

This is a great place to eat! The ribs and chicken accompanied by coleslaw, baked beans and fry bread are what The Backroom is known for and they really can't be beat. They offer a children's menu that is definitely geared for children to enjoy...More
