Fine Dining and Breathing: Backroad Pub and Grill

Cost: For the price I paid, I have no complaints. At $14, I got a very large burger and a generous helping of fries. I got enough food that I wasn’t able to finish all of it, and I took about half of the burger home to eat the next day. Everything on the menu ranges from about $7-$25, but I think that you’ll always get your money’s worth at this restaurant, whether you order a burger or a salad.

Service: The service was very kind and cooperative with the needs of a large group. The servers appeared knowledgeable about the products being sold and offered help when needed. As someone with a dairy allergy, the server was very amiable with my special needs, although the options for someone who is dairy free specifically are minimal. From what I could tell the restaurant offered several vegetarian, gluten-free and ketogenic options. Overall, the servers and menu were very cooperative with special food needs, and I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

Food: It is fair to say, Backroad Pub and Grill has some of the best burgers in town. With a wide variety of different burgers to satisfy cravings, I ordered The Decision is Yours burger which consist of grilled cheese sandwich buns, lettuce, tomato, mac and cheese. The calories backed a punch, but it is one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. I also order the Big Arse Pretzel, which is a one-and-a-half-pound pretzel, easily fed the six of us. I would highly recommend eating here.

Ambiance: It has a pub atmosphere with a bar and classic “bar food” like burgers, shareable appetizers, etc. Have the option of sitting in the bar or in the dining area, most families were in the dining area. There’s live music every Friday and/or Saturday night in the bar, which makes for a loud, fun, and casual feel. TV’s were also around the restaurant with various sports games playing.
