We've eaten at this place for years, and when we were there today, my wife asked if I'd ever put it on TA, and I haven't - and I should have. This is the restaurant by which all other Backyard Burgers', and for that matter, most other fast-food places, should be judged. The service is always quick, friendly, beyond-what-is-expected, and...

We recently visited there because they had agreed to give a percentage of the proceeds to Church Women United. I had the vege burger (I believe they call it a Garden Burger) and it was great. You order, they give you a Letter while they prepare it fresh, and an employee brings it out to your table when it is... More

I had tried this place a few times and did not like the leather burgers. I found out the key to success is made to order. I ordered mine fresh med cooked and it was wonderful.

A friend and I were out on Patrol at lunch time, and he had never eaten there. I had a Major Saver Card that was a promotion for a school fund raising. It was a buy one get one free, so I took him there for the first time. I had their delicious veggie burger, and it was terrific. He... More

I ate the bacon cheese burger, no ketchup. The burger was good and not too much of the other condiments that it would slide apart while eating it. I also had the seasoned fries and some onion rings both were good and hot.

This is the slowest, most expensive burger joint on earth! Food is good, but worth almost TEN dollars for a small size combo meal?? NOT

I am absolutely hooked to the baked potato soup! It honestly has to be the best that I've ever eaten! The past few times I have been, along with my small baked potato soup, I have gotten a black and bleu burger. Delicious! I can't wait to go again - tonight!

Very good food and doesn't take forever to get through the drive-through. Good service, delicious food and lots of choices for the carnivore as well as veggie burgers, chicken, etc. Used to think it was a tiny bit more expensive than other burger places but you can get a "regular" combo for less than $6.00. That's a bargain any more... More

No other fast food restaurant compares to the flavor of the food here. Nice variety, great service, and fair prices. We have eaten here many times and always had an excellent meal!
