Great place! Decent ribs considering they aren't smoked, the sides were pretty good too. Great ambiance and fun place to go to. The bbq sauce could have been better and the ribs needed more bark and a smoky taste.
I didn't know that boiled food was considered BBQ! The meat had no flavor and was dry. The only smoke flavor in the food is from the BBQ sauce, which is probably just some generic sauce with liquid smoke added to it. Imagine if Denny's turned into a BBQ restaurant, that is exactly what Back Forty Texas BBQ tastes like. The one good thing about this place is that hardly anyone was there, so the service was good. Don't waste your money!
Back forty has the absolute worst ribs i've ever eaten. They clearly boil their ribs to try and make them tender. This also cooks all of the natural flavor out of the bone. meaning they end up having to rely on their god awful atempt at BBQ sauce to put flavor back into the meat, which is then followed by grilling on top of the stove to try and make it appear that it was on an out door grill. We all know that if they we're using actual out door grills and smoke houses, you would be able to smell their food from a mile away. That my friends is one of many ways to ID good BBQ from the really crappy BBQ that you give to your neighbor's dog to make it shut up.
Though the ribs are pretty darn good, the 3 times I tried the sliced meats they were very dry, it was sad to me, as I had high hopes after trying the ribs at the Shingle Springs location, sauce is good though.
I've tried BBQ food from all over this great country including the great states of Texas and Florida. Back 40 is the best hands down! The dinning experience is casual with great wait staff. In fact most of the employees have been part of the Back 40 team for years and know the menu inside and out. Let's talk about the food...Ribs, sandwiches, potato skins, actually anything on the menu is without question, the best BBQ to be had in these parts of the country. This is a restaurant that is hard to find, but once you find it, you will not be disappointed.
By the way, make sure you ask for the extra-spicy sauce, you will wonder why Back 40 does not sell this to the local grocers. Don't forget to order Cornbread with honey and butter.
