Back Forty has been in the back of my end for quite a while but I am just too lazy to walk past my avenue. Although today was an exception. I decided to venture 2 avenues down to see if it is truly what it is known for.
It is a cute restaurant with full bar and very friendly staff. I looked at the menu and it seems this restaurant is slightly on the pricey side although nothing seems outrageous. The burger here is $13 but it has no cheese, no bacon and no fries. Everything extra is $2 more, which I think is a bit too much. I mean seriously, $2 for cheese?!
Anyway I got the burger with fries and my boyfriend tried the burger with bacon. I must admit the burger is fabulous. It is big but not sloppy; juicy but not dripping, flavorful but you could still taste the beef!
The fries are rosemary fries but I couldn't taste too much of the rosemary per se.
We also ordered the fried pork jolt for $4, which I thought was really cheap for an appetizer dish. Then, it came and I know why. Only 3 pieces of fried pork cubes! Regardless, it is really delicious. Tender pork belly dipped in amazing jalapeno jam.
Overall, great service, nice atmosphere and amazing burgers. But I think they charge quite a lot for a burger.
Pros: Juicy, perfect size, great flavor
