Rich in barbecue traditions upheld by the resident pit master, Backyard Bistro’s menu showcases an impressive array of saucy meats. Slow-cooked in handcrafted cast-iron pit smokers, delectable dishes such as the half-pound slow-roasted pork barbecue ($13.50) are flavor-fertilized overnight to bring ultimate moisture and zest to each bite. Ribs are massaged with Backyard’s signature rub and slow-roasted until the tender meat slides down the bone faster than buttered bread on a Slip ‘n' Slide ($18.95 for full rack; $14.95 for half rack). In addition to the tender barbecue options, Backyard Bistro slings steaks ($16.95–$24), burgers ($8.50+), and sandwiches ($7.50+), all aptly paired with sides such as succotash and hush puppies ($3 each).

To accompany favorite sports battles or challenge wavering vegetarianism, Backyard Bistro also flaunts a robust party platter chockfull of cookout-style classics. Decorate a patio with samplings of ribs, salmon, or chicken fingers for an easy boost of confidence in your hunting abilities, while providing salad to satisfy your gathering skills. A dessert of the day will top off the platter's festivities.

Backyard Bistro

According to a 2009 profile, Backyard Bistro knows a thing or two about ribs. To create this St. Louis–style specialty, the Bistro encrusts the pork in a dry spice rub and leaves it to bask in heat and hickory smoke for three hours. They then wrap each rack in aluminum foil with a splash of apple juice, returning them to the smoker for another four hours before charring them on the grill under a glaze of tangy or sweet barbecue sauce. The Bistro also stokes up the smoker to tenderize the dry-rubbed pork shoulder––another specialty––for 12 whole hours, while slices of juicy beef brisket await to be smothered between hefty slabs of white bread and saddled next to sides such as crisp coleslaw, Mama T's potato salad, and baked beans.

The menu of barbecue and American comfort food represent the efforts of several local businesses. Brioche rolls for burgers and english muffins for benedicts are sourced from La Farm Bakery, then crowned with organic, hydroponic bibb lettuce and beef from Angus Barn or poached eggs and canadian bacon. The bar's 16 taps pour Bud Light and Belgian-style Backyard Brew, the locally brewed house draft, to cool meals taken out on the patio or into a neighbor's hot tub, while inside it's all about sports. Five big-screen TVs broadcast every play in high definition, and speakers at each table give diners the option of turning down the volume if they'd rather tune out
