Every trip to Jacksonville, we try to make it to the Back Porch. The inside is cowboy kitsch, with pictures of real and Hollywood cowboys and Indians, and a wall of cowboy boots by the door. Waitresses are down-to-earth and friendly, and the food portions...More

You absolutely must love heavy greasy dishes to like what they offer in this restaurant. Restaurant is themed as Southwestern, but that may be an insult to the genre. We started with deep-fried green beans which came out a very dark unappetizing brown. It is...More

We stopped in for dinner on a Monday night. The hostess correctly guessed that we'd be more comfortable in the bar since we didn't have kids and the dining room was packed with families. We both ordered brisket. My husband had the sandwich and I...More
