The original and beloved Back 40 is located on South Dixie Highway. What was once a quaint home built in 1897, is now a restaurant that offers locals and tourists an experience of good food and company. The menu provides their signature quesadillas, tacos, burritos, and wraps. The fusion flavors from regions closer to the equator give these foods a unique taste. They also have a generous selection of appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, and salads.
Some specialties that dessert lovers enjoy are the restaurant's homemade key lime pie, mud pie, and chocolate chip brownie. Happy Hour is held every day from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. where tacos are $3.00 each. All dressings and salsa are made in the kitchen, and they keep local by carrying their own datil pepper sauce.
Guests may dine in or choose to do takeout. Shaded patio seating is provided for customers, and pets are welcome to join in on the fun in the ouside space.
Back 40 Urban Cafe is open from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. every day but Sundays.
