Our BBQ selection of beef ribs and chicken was awful. Their chili tastes like it came from a can. Completely underwhelming. Avoid.

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.

The best prime rib in town. perfectly roasted. I had a baked potatoe with bacon, cheese, green onions and sour cream. The salad is uninspired, but that is not why we eat here. Great date night.

Love this place but don't order pickup! Took forever. I ordered 20 mins before going to pick it up. When I got there it wasn't even close to being ready. Food is good but really overpriced for what you get.

The food is very good plus they have a fairly large menu. The only downside is that it's a bit expensive. However you get what you pay for nowadays.
