I’ve never had a bad meal here. The Milkyway Mudslide is to die for. Unfortunately they do not take reservations & have sat for an hour and 1/2 for a table.

I had heard about it for years, finally visited the restaurant in Sept 2018. I was not disappointed & you will not be either. It's worth the stop.

The Backroom is famous for chicken tenders, frozen mudslides, and ice cream. All menu items are good. Portions are huge - plan to split your meal in half and take the other half home. The one thing I don't understand about the famous chicken tenders...More

Try to get here before 5pm - or after 8pm. It can get crowded. They don't take reservations, but the wait is worth it. The food is excellent, the price is good. The service is incredible. If you like mudslides - this is the place....More

It's a short 10 minutes away. From the SNHU Ctr, drive north on Elm st thru the downtown for a mile or so. Take Right at lights at Webster Street (Rte 3/28). Puritan is on your right in about another mile or so.
