Red Rock Cafe & Backdoor BBQ Restaurant Review

: The Red Rock, as locals call it, is usually full, and there's a good reason why. Its hearty, honest burgers, zesty barbeque and fried chicken may not make it into any food magazines, but there's also the bar to watch a baseball game, read the paper and enjoy that hot, messy burger, pulled pork or barbecued beef sandwich along with the ubiquitous basket of fries. Red Rock also provides one of the best on-tap beer selections in town. The outdoor barbecue joint serves up hearty ribs, beef and slaw, and locals line up to take it with. This place is like the little family diner from your childhood, but better.
