When an establishment has been around as long as Moranto's Backstreet Bar & Grill has been, you know there has to be a reason for its staying power. Backstreet Bar & Grill has been serving up its hearty pub-style food and neighborly hospitality with the same zeal today as it did on its first day of business over twenty years ago. There is something inviting and familiar about this local bar and grill that brings its customers back, time after time, year after year.
Perhaps it is the great food at Backstreet that makes it so popular. Backstreet is well known for its famous Friday night Fish & Chips, its sizzlin' hot steaks, its perfectly seasoned main dishes, and its huge selection of grilled pizzas. With a diverse array of options, including such favorite hot dishes as Meatloaf, Stuffed Chicken, Grilled Swordfish, Ziti with Veal or Chicken Parm, or all your most-requested hot and cold sandwiches and burgers - there is something here to satisfy every palate. The selection of appetizers is also seemingly endless with crispy onion rings, melt-in-your-mouth mozzarella sticks, fiery Buffalo Wings and home style Stuffies, to name but a few. Everything here is made with the freshest of ingredients, and the kind of flavors that make you salivate at the mere thought of them.
Perhaps it is also the great prices that continue to bring Backstreet's loyal fans back here. Along with everyday low prices, Backstreet has a bargain lunch special, served daily from 11am - 4pm. With the purchase of a beverage, you can choose from a menu of hot and cold sandwiches, as well as varied hot dishes - all for only $6.00 (no take-out.)
Perhaps it is also the great atmosphere here at Backstreet's that has kept it around for so long. Inside, there are HD TVs and a pool table, as well as a full-service bar, but now that the weather has finally warmed up, the outdoor patio is also OPEN FOR BUSINESS! Come bask in the sun, throw back a frothy beer from the tap and enjoy.
Finally, perhaps it is owners Dick and Colleen Moranto's constant commitment to "giving back" by supporting worthy causes that has kept them busy all these years. On Sunday, May 19th, they will be doing just this by sponsoring the "Bike Run for Jamie Trenholm". Call the pub for details about how you can get tickets to this bike ride and cookout.
Mark your calendars for a day of Cinco de Mayo celebrations on Sunday, May 5th when Backstreet is serving up Mexican-inspired food and drink specials all day - including plenty of Margaritas to go around!
