Backstreet Grill

Backstreet Grill says it’s “where the locals go to eat,” and the claim is easy to believe. Standing amid weathered Victorian houses on a street just off downtown Sanford’s main drag, the two-story brick building with tin awnings looks like a classic corner tap. Inside there are plenty of flat-screen TVs and boneless wings slathered in housemade buffalo sauce, but there’s also a full menu that brings to mind an upscale steakhouse as much as the more casual spot its surroundings suggest. Rather than train cute children to steal ingredients for him, chef Matt works carefully and continually with his food distributors to identify the best sources for his hearty American menu. The Choice and Angus beef is hand-cut in house before being paired with buttered lobster; seafood fra diavolo adds kick to haddock, shrimp, and mussels; and the 10 dressings gracing a selection of salads are all made fresh.

From behind a bar adorned with flat-screen televisions, bartenders help diners wash down each bite with a full stock of liquors, wines, and six draft beers and microbrews. Live musicians fill the pub with the tapping of toes each Thursday night, and a sidewalk patio lets guests keep an eye on the rest of Sanford’s nightlife.
