Back Forty Texas BBQ

Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 June 2018

We have been eating at Back Forty for about 20 years. Consistently great food, good prices, and wonderful friendly service! You have to try the pork ribs and the burnt ends. Fantastic BBQ Chicken (you can substitute Beef) Salad. If you like it a little hotter, ask for the spicy BBQ sauce.

Small portions. Mac and cheese was horrible. Brisket was just okay but ribs were pretty good. Service was not bad but not exceptional. Haven't been back since.

Back Forty serves the best brisket in three counties. When you just don’t want to fire up the smoker it is the go-to place in Shingle Springs.

It was good. The potato skins was really good. The pulled pork wasn’t all that. The service was very friendly and a nice atmosphere.

Over priced and not very good. It's been around forever and we figured it must be good to have lasted decades but we were totally disappointed. Had brisket sandwiches with beans for lunch. Almost $40 for 2 lunches and there was hardly any meat! It was average tasting BBQ. Expected more. Won't go back.
