Back Forty Texas BBQ
Our concept is simple: Use only the freshest, finest ingredients, use only authentic Texas recipes and treat our guests with good old-fashioned southern hospitality.
It was in Las Vegas where Schroeder met the Erb brothers … Bill and Jeff … Bay Area natives. They were so impressed with his barbeque and the business opportunity, that they began planning a California Back Forty. After training extensively with Schroeder they founded the original California BACK FORTY in Pleasant Hill in December 1978. In 1985 Jeff bought his brother’s interest and set out to refine the menu and catering facilities.
This is Roseville Back Forty … and It All Began in a Poker Game. In the mid-1960’s, Michael Schroeder was in Austin, Texas, engaged in his favorite pastime. Another player, short on cash but long on nerve, covered Schroeder’s bet by offering “half my restaurant.”
Schroeder’s three 3’s beat a pair of queens. When it was time to pay up, the owner of the barbeque restaurant insisted that he meant “half the space,” not a “half interest.” Schroeder’s “half” was an empty room in the back

This spot is the one I always prefer. I eat in a lot of restaurants but to this one I keep coming back again and again. The stuff is very professional and the cooking they place on your table is so fresh and tasty. I am always happy to have a nice dinner here. I highly recommend this place.
I love this place. The staff is always nice and helpful. Had the fried pickled for the first time. They were amazing! The food is always great and the bread is to die for
I was somewhat disappointed when I first ordered and receive my dinner. The menu said that the beef ribs that I had ordered were meaty. Unfortunately they were not. When the server ask me how I was enjoying my meal I told her of my disappointment and she immediately responded with several more beef ribs. I was now and beef rib heaven. They were very tasty and I loved the barbecue sauce that came with it. Hopefully you will not have the same experience that I did at the start. I was very happy with the outcome and will return.
