Always go there for takeout. Great prices and wait staff. Affordable and very selected menu. Great food. Always fresh and hot when the food is picked up.

They ground their own beef for hamburgers. Plus they hand cut their steaks. Not a fancy place, but don't think the food isn't!

Huspuppies are a lost art in the barbeque business. Back Country still does it right, cranking the batter out into the deep fryer. Next comes the slaw; the red slaw that is a famous as Lexington-style barbeque. Not too sweet, with a good helping of...More
