Jerk Chicken and Pineapple Quesadilla

This is our "go to" place! Love the back 40 and all of their dishes. My favorites are the shrimp curry salad and jerk chicken quesadilla but have never been dissatisfied. My husband loves the island bowl with shrimp and the fiesta magi wrap. We love the unique flavors and laid back atmosphere. For a casual date night a pre-dinner drink at the bog followed by the back 40 is perfect.

I've gone to Back 40 Urban Cafe for years and they never disappoint me! The food is consistently amazing and they have the best Cuban sandwich in St. Augustine!!

Upside Down Chicken Pot Pie

Love the Back 40. It is always one of our stops when we visit St. Augustine. The food is always good & so is the service. We know we are not going to be disappointed when we eat there. We definitely have to try the Back 40 A1A on our next visit to the area.

Thai Chicken & Peanut

This is my all time favorite salad. The chicken has the best seasoning and is always fresh. The salad dressing is so good I could probably drink it. Yum, yum, yum! Honestly, I have never had a bad meal and I've been going to Back 40 for many years.

Thai Chicken & Peanut

This is one of the best salads I have ever had! I love the Thai peanut dressing, but the marinated cucumbers are a spicy treat that makes the whole salad come together! It's so large I save half for later...a double treat! Truly Awesome!!

Island Bowl

Loved my Island Bowl with Mojo pork. It was a huge serving and it was delicious. The salsa is amazing! Also had the queso appetizer. There were two of us sharing and I had plenty to take home.

Visited today with a coworker and the food and service were excellent. I'm so glad this place is fairly close to where I work as I know I will be back again soon!

Shrimp Tacos

Started at the original Back 40 and love its quaintness, but was so excited when A1A opened closer to home. I am stuck on their tacos and chips and salsa. Every time I go I'm determined to try something new, but those delicious tacos seem to call my name. But this review settles time I'm trying a new dish for sure!!

Shrimp Po'boy

We LOVE Back40! Being locals, we come to Back40 atleast once a week. Having tried almost everything on the menu, there's not a single dish that I didn't like! Their daily happy hour is a deal, and their specials can't be beaten. Every dessert they make is to die for! Highly recommend Back40! They will be stealing my money for years to come! :)

Shrimp Curry

One of our go to favorite spots for an amazing meal and good price. 9x out of 10, I get their shrimp curry salad, because there's nothing else like it around!

Island Bowl

My family has been going to The Back 40 for years. I always have a hard time choosing between the Island Bowl, Wet Burrito, or the Tacos. I love each one equally and crave each one when I arrive. The food is always top notch, very friendly waitresses, and a very at home feeling while we are there. I have recommended it to many people and have brought many with me. My wife and I enjoy the Tuesday night date night that The Back 40 does. $25 for two meals, 2 drinks and a shared dessert! You can not beat that!!

Island Bowl

We recently visited on a Tuesday for the date night special. What a great deal that is.... We sat outside with a total of four of us and had great service. We each had something different, i had the Island Bowl with jerk Chicken and my husband had the Wet Burrito. The other couple had the Chicken Nachos and Fish Tacos. The portions are big and taste great. After we stopped eating our dinner our server said theres comes the dessert menu. Yes with the date night special you get a dessert to share. Whats on the dessert menu you ask? They had several things but Cheesecake is what caught my attention and this was not just any cheesecake. It was delicious!!!!! Jessie that works at this location makes these daily from scratch and they are Amazing. In my opinion it was a great dinner with a great price. We have visted this location three different times. The first time was a girls night with around 10 of us, the second time was a group of twenty three friends, the last time us and another couple and each visit we have had great food and excellent service. Check them out on Facebook for specials each night.

Fiesta Mahi Wrap

Fish (Mahi) & Chips (Tortilla) salad!! The "Special" of the day!! It was so good and was suggested by Pennie! Fish was prepared perfect and the veggies and ALL were fresh! Washed it down with a ice cold Kona Longboard! Sat at the bar and got great service from Pennie! The lunches have always been great and look forward to the dinners! Thanks again for the superb service and great food!!

Island Bowl

What a burst of freshness! I added the jerk chicken to my bowl and must say I did not have a single complaint. The chicken alone was moist and tender and perfectly seasoned. I was a little skeptical of the rice but found it enhanced the bowls flavor (and pleasing to the pallet) Everything tasted fresh which now a days can be rare treat! The hubby had the popular meatloaf burger and now understands why it is a must to try! The meat was juicy and full of flavor! And last but not least the staff! We felt at home here and we will be visiting more often! Very well done! Sincerely the picky food eater who my family says should be a food critic!

Avocado and Roasted Red Pepper Tacos

Nice vegetarian option, good flavor combo. It would be great if you had some substitutions for the cheese and ranch sauce so it could be vegan.

Wet Burrito

So much of everything you love about a burrito! Beans,rice, cheese, peppers and more- plus the meat or seafood of your choice! Smothered in sauce and cheese extras on the side. It's two meals for most people- even my husband! Always a favorite- so much so that we haven't tried that many things on the menu even though we are locals! 😄

Mahi Tacos

Those Mahi tacos!!!! So glad I found this wonderful place. Close to home, so very fresh and friendly with delicious food and great service! These tacos are perfectly prepared and quite a generous portion with the most scrumptious black beans and rice in the side. I almost want to keep this place a secret but I shout it from the rooftops! I usually enjoy sitting outside in this beautiful little haven. Nice cool Chardonnay to drink and a homey luscious half pint pana Cotta make a perfect finish. Mmmmm

Jerk Chicken Nachos

The best nachos! I've tried ordering other dishes but always return to these. I've never had jerk chicken anywhere that tastes this good!

Chili Mac Bowl

While my heart will forever belong to tacos... My favorite thing to order at Back 40 is their Chili Mac Bowl. The three bean chili combined with the pickled jalapenos and peppers is excellent!

Island Bowl

My family has been going here for years. Why you ask? Because you get delicious, fresh food, generous portions, served by the friendliest people, who remember you, what you eat and how you like it, and want to make sure you have a great experience and keep coming back. We like it so much, we had a family event at the A1A location too. Come! You won't be disappointed
