We had a blast. The food is excellent. The drinks are cold. We had an order of nachos the 1st time and the second time, my wife had a burger and I had hot wings. She said her burger was excellent and my hot wings were so good (original style) that I order 12 more to go. And there are... More

I used to live very close to Backyard, so it was pretty much a once a week takeout for my family. The food is not fancy, but it is consistently good. I've never had anything that was not good, but I recommend the fried catfish, any of the burgers, chicken fried steak and for sure the fried okra! They do... More

Good quality BBQ and more served in a cool environment complete with TV's if you desire. The staff is always great and the prices are good. I would recommend to anyone local or visiting. It's the first place I think to take someone from out of state who wants a real Texas BBQ experience.

Friendly local restaurant with great food. The pulled pork sandwiches are so good. Hamburgers are huge and to much to eat. The homemade onion rings are the best I have had.

The Bubba Taters deluxe is my personal favorite. It's a potato cut into 8 pieces with smoked brisket on top then topped with a little sour cream, sausage, and BBQ sauce. It's enough for two. I usually eat half and get a to go box and have the rest the next day. Delicious.

It's not just the BBQ that's great, all the food they offer is delicious. They have a nice bar area as well.

I heard good things...liars. The BBQ is the worst I've ever had. Chicken dry...you have to have skills to make a drumstick dry. Brisket had zero flavor. I kept putting more sauce and salt. Ribs were ok. Baked potato was completely overdone. Powder like inside. Back to Miller's Smokehouse I go.

Love the food. The only complaint is the serving sizes are never consistent with their sides especially the fries.

This place makes you feel like your family!! Large portions, reasonable prices, good drinks, and daily creative specials. For a BBQ joint it has so much more than your traditional Texas BBQ plates. You guys are putting Morgan's Point on the map!!

We used to live in Morgans Point, so we often picked up food from Backyard to go. We probably did this nearly every week. The food is always good - down home, nothing fancy, but always tasty, no matter what we ordered. The restaurant expanded and remodeled over a year ago. It is a very Texas atmosphere and extremely casual,... More
