I've been going to the Back Forty since moving to Pleasant Hill over 40 years ago. Service and quality have always been top notch! The breaded zucchini and mozzarella sticks are favorite appetizers. You can't go wrong with the pork or beef ribs. Brisket of...More

You certainly can't go wrong if come for lunch or dinner. Besides the good food they also have an extensive menu for the bar.
