While the meat you eat is real, rugged barbecue, Back Forty’s Disney-safe operation seduces even doe-eyed diners. Connoisseurs will find the smoke subtle, the sauce balanced yet feisty, and the sides Š lacking in personality. Find a niche at the saloon (live music most weekends), in one of two cowboy-themed dining rooms, or under the shade of a centuries-old oak. And if cloth napkins just won’t cut it, hit the take-out window for a rack of falling-off-the-bone pork ribs or a pile of juicy brisket (skip the lean option), and have a party at home with your favorite beans and a roll of paper towels at the ready. Good chicken, catfish, and desserts. Also in San Ramon. Lunch and dinner daily. Make Reservations
