We arrived late but Andrew at Back Yard Burgers was friendly and the food was good. This was our first visit and we tried the veggie burger --- very good -- and the cheddar burger - good - along with side salads and strawberry lemonade (GREAT). We recommend.

I miss my local backyard burger! Our family ALWAYS stops to eat the best fast food burger out there. The chicken and shakes are outstanding as well.

The burgers and fries were great.. seemed like they only had one or two people cooking though.seemed ridiculous for a business to be operationg with no staff. alot of people just standing around waiting around for their orders. They seemed to care about serving the drive thru more than the lobby. So if you go there may want to hit... More

Have been here a couple of times...The food overall is really quite good. The challenge is that on the times I have been there...the staff just is not concerned at all...I was once the only car in drive thru and ordered food for 4 people...it took almost 30 minutes...I couldn't believe it... If this place had the same menu and... More

This is a quick, cheap and great food stop. It's too hot to eat a big meal during the day in Destin, this place hits the spot. Friendly staff and excellent service.

As we are from New York, we wanted to try new places while we were in the area. I feel for the price, you don't really get a lot. We ordered "value meals" and it didn't feel like a "value". I, personally, upgraded to the onion rings for an extra cost and there were only like 5 in the small... More

It had been a year or longer from my last stop here. They were busy, but worth the wait. Our burgers were as good as I remembered.

It was a hamburger that upon first impression looked exactly like a preformed patty that you would get from the grocery store. Overpriced but friendly staff. When it comes down to it, I got a burger that was not extravagant or exciting.
