Southwest Egg Rolls

These egg rolls were delicious! They are so tasty. The sauce is amazing. The only thing I wonder is if there's any kind of chicken or meat in them. It says filled with vegetables but I'm not sure if we could identify everything. ..

Side Caesar Salad

A salad is a salad is a salad. But, the caesar dressing at the Back-40 should be independently marketed and sold. Wonderful.

Chicken Curry

I was so glad this wrap was huge because I got to enjoy it for dinner and again for lunch the next day. The perfect flavor combination of chicken, veggies, cashews, coconut, and coconut curry dressing was delicious.

Shrimp Po'boy

I had a Shrimp Roll; I think the Po'Boy may be the same thing. The actual roll was definitely up to the task, not disintigrating at all. I liked the sandwich, but it was kind of plain. The sauce had a tiny bit of heat to it, which was fine with me as I like mild-medium. It was dripping out of the tail end of the sandwich though. Maybe if it was thicker it would stay in the sandwich and give more taste to the roll. The best part was the shrimp; not only did it look and taste like it was really fresh, but it was SO plentiful. I personally would have been happier if it was chopped some, like lobster meat typically is in a Lobster Roll. The whole shrimps were good size creating a pretty big bite, along with the roll, cabbage and tomato.

Santa Fe Chicken

Dear Back 40, This dish is Super Awesome! Every time i've had this dish, which is like 20 times ( used to be the farmhouse chicken salad, i believe?) it has been fantastic. the food is super affordable. You receive a big portion of food for only 11.00. Consistently cooked well and the cucumbers are amazing. They are pickled cucumbers, but not quite pickles and i could eat an entire jar of them in one sitting. Also, the southwest ranch pulls the dish together nicely. there is a great combination of flavors between the beans and crunchy tortilla strips and all working together. the customer service is great too. I love putting money back into the pockets of my local neighbors. warmly, amy

Cajun Shrimp

This dish has an amazing combination of flavors that excites my entire palate. The grits are so well done that they could satisfy my appetite by themself.

Dynamite Shrimp

We have tried about everything on the menu but the dynamite shrimp must be the best item on the menu. You can split with a friend and then get a wonderful dessert. We ht tried all. Never disappointed. We have been to over 20 different restaurants in St. Aug and this is our favorite. Good food and good service. Cannot wait for Covid to end so date night will resume
