Back Yard Burger (Jackson, MS)

6230 Old Canton Rd, Jackson, MS 39211, T: 601-362-5223

Back Yard Burger is a regional fast food chain, with some 170 locations in the South and Midwest of the United States. It caters to the growing market of people who want a better burger than the classic chains (e.g. Burger King, McDonalds), but still want fast food and not a restaurant. That said, Back Yard Burger is probably the nicest styled fast food chain I have ever visited.

I order the Back Yard Burger Meal for $6.75. The Back Yard Burger includes a 1/3 lb. burger, which is freshly made, tomato, lettuce, red onion, pickles, and ketchup and mustard on the upper bun and mayo on the bottom bun. Overall, there is too much sauce. The waffle fries are ok, but they are lukewarm and have not much taste.

VERDICT: 77/100
Overall, Back Yard Burger is not bad for a chain. It falls in between Wendys and Hardees/Carl's Jr. However, it does have a much nicer interior.
