This is one of our regular stops in Saint Augustine. The menu is solid, reasonably priced and generally interesting. The beer selection is good and the wines, while limited, are very reasonable and inexpensive. The place itself is fun and super casual. It's in a house and each room features a different décor. The staff is all super friendly and laid back. We've had several of the appetizers, sandwiches, specialties, and a dessert or two. In terms of appetizers, the Black Bean Hummus is inventive with just the right touch of spice (and the pita chips are super good), the Vegetarian 3 Bean Chili and Chips is a must try and the Soup du Jour is always good. If you like avocado then try the Island Bowl. It's fresh and filling. The Chili Mac Bowl is another good bet. The Wet Burrito is super tasty, not to mention monstrous and what's not to like about the Back 40 Meatloaf Burger (Back 40 Burger) made with local ground beef? And don't forget the Cuban. It's creative and the mustard adds just the right touch to make it memorable. And then there are the Reubens, the Quesadillas, the Shrimp Po'boy, the Chips and Salsa, etc., etc. And for the coup de grace, every day from 3:00 to 6:00 pm you can get $3.00 tacos; $2.25 domestic beers, Coronas and Modelos (including Modelo Dark); and $1.00 off all other beers and wines. How cool is that?
Absolutely delicious! Very gracious serving too!
Their cheesecakes are TO DIE FOR! Ordering a slice is a MUST at every visit!
The Back 40 was my favorite place to eat in St. Augustine. My husband and I visited this restaurant on the last day of vacation and we wished so badly that we had known about this restaurant before then because we would've kept coming back! Their Cuban sandwich is by far the best one I've ever had and we still talk about it! The atmosphere is cute and perfect for a family lunch!! Can't wait to go back!
This is my favorite salad in town! The shrimp are sautéed and seasoned to perfection - they've got a little spice but are not overly heavy on the blackening seasoning. The cashews and the croutons give it a great crunch while the pickled cucumber slices give the salad a nice acidity and brightness. Add to it the flavor of the creamy buttermilk curry dressing and you have a well balanced, hearty salad that will leave you feeling satisfied. I'll be back for another soon!
Yummy food and great service!!
I am always looking for the best Cuban and Back 40 is still #1 on my list. I send all my friends, relatives, and visitors to Back 40. Laid back atmosphere and friendly staff. Their Tuesday night Date Night Special is an amazing deal. Keep it up!
Hands down best salad/dish in the city !!! And its healthy! Had it multiple times with grilled shrimp and the quality is always in point! Our healthy takeout go to.
Amazing salad...LOVED the dressing! Also had the happy hour tacos...SOOO YUMMY! Dessert, too! Mmmmm! Fresh food... excellent service! Sat on the patio with our dog... nice to have a place that doesn't frown when you mention a dog!
Delicious and fresh.
We have eaten here twice. Nice food, etc. We were recently waited on by a young gentleman named Hayden. Very nice and super helpful. Good place to get a cold beer and some good food!!!!!
I just love this Such a great place to eat Cant wait to try more on the menu.
Best Nachos around - SO GOOD!
My absolute favorite!!! And the dressing O M G!!!! So good!!!!
This dish was excellent! I'm a vegetarian and this bowl was perfect, especially when you add avocado. Service was excellent too!
different food something not conforming, Great to have another option
This is the best salad I have eaten. I get one every week
We had several items. Shrimp tacos, dynamite tacos, Cuban sandwich... everything was awesome! Great flavors, abundant portions. Coming from SoCal we have high expectations for tacos of any kind and we were very pleasantly surprised. The happy hour made it all the better! $2.25 Modelo! $3.00 tacos. Don't think I can even make them for that at home. Crazy! Then we found out they have Date Night Tuesdays and Wine Wednesdays! OMG! I might move in! I posted in St. Augustine South. I hope you can keep up.
Best tacos ever!
First time eating here great food tacos were bursting with flavor right spice versus sweet contrast and great environment friendly staff a++
Can't help but get their chips and salsa every time! So addicting!!
Back 40 is my GO TO. I have been eating here for years. Their food is always delicious and I look forward to the specials! The California Reuben is just ONE of many favorites on their menu.
A massive venture into flavor town. Everything you want in a burrito and then some.
I have had so many dishes and I do not have a favorite as they are all DELISH!! Highly recommend for lunch or dinner. Hidden gem.
Yum! Great flavors, fresh ingredients, super service and a large beer selection- we will be back!
It was love at first bite! I have never been so delightfully surprised by a salad offering.Plump local shrimp coated in a savoury Cajun spice, sit on top of a bed of crisp romaine ,full of surprises...... cashews, toasted coconut, crunchy croutons and fresh veggies...all flavours and textures a go ....Then! Whamo! Served on the side is a bowl of Coconut Curry Buttermilk Dressing that is insanely delicious. Seriously it was a tough decision ......dip each forkful in, dump it all over the top or just drink it!
These are by far the best nachos i have ever had!!!!!!
The best. Will be back.
Absolutely delicious! Great service, very clean!
Best tacos I have ever had. I dream about these tacos. Thank you for creating such a wonderful item!
Awesome dish!! Everything was fresh and tasty!!!!
It was my first time trying Back 40! I had the Shrimp Curry Salad and it was exactly how I pictured it. I truly loved it. I like salads but sometimes I find myself eating all the toppings and growing tired of the lettuce. The dressing for this salad did not allow me to become bored! It was Crisp, refreshing and flavorful. I just added a bit of sriracha because I'm a big fan of the heat and it was great! On a side note, the San Augustin Datil Table sauce on the tables is amazing. I'm on the hunt to find it for my own home!
First time at the Back 40. This quesadilla was delicious. Will definitely be back!
Excellent taste! Lots of food, great value! Oder it with steak. Be sure to go on Tuesday for the date night special
Was good n delicious recommended to anyone
This sandwich was one of the best I have eaten. Great bread and meat selections were not dry...
What a delight! Back 40 UF was great start to finish, our fun server made some recommendations and my husband had the BBQ Chicken quesadilla which he inhaled. I opted for the Chimichurri Steak Quesadilla which I almost passed on because we were eating late they were out of the sauce however, my server let me know the meat was marinated in the sauce. Indeed, it was delicious. The portion was generous the steak and cheese so yummy and I ate the other half for lunch the next day—divine. Then we had key lime pie for dessert! This type of pie is prevalent everywhere but it's super mouthwatering here. We finished our beers and walked home after fond good nights with our charming server. Yes, we highly recommend Back 40 UF and we will be back real soon.
I have tried quite a few dishes and love them all but since recently going more vegetarian, I had the Avo, Red Pepper Taco and it didn't disappoint. I love this restaurant because it's not downtown and has a more local vibe. With my office downtown I feel like I'm escaping the madness when I come to Back 40. Keep up the great cooking!
Wow! This was a very tasty burrito! Excellent flavor and HUGE! Enough for 2 meals. Highly recommended!!
It was so good. The pineapple in the quesadilla was surprisingly good too. Overall great meal. Will definitely come back.
