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

IF you can find this place, you will have accomplished something. It is a couple miles off the nearest main thoroughfare, in a rather nondescript old building with a stone facade. Inside the ambiance is pure Aggie Texican, with painted concrete floors, wooden picnic tables, and corrugated tin on the walls. The music was yeehaw all the way, and a... More

Our family came in last night to eat about 8pm. The food is always good here. Never had anything bad. The hostess on the other hand acted like we were an inconvenience to her. Not friendly at al. Was it because it was close to 9 dwhen they close. Don't know
