A couple of weeks ago my family, along with my two year old nephew Sylas, were out doing some shopping at Legends Outlets and decided to stop in Backfire Barbeque Featuring Orange County Choppers for dinner. This one-of-a-kind motorcycle themed restaurant features Orange County choppers, classic cars, retail and live entertainment in the warm months. Oh and let’s not forget the mouth-watering aroma of barbeque!
Sylas loves all things cars and racing so he was in ooh and aah land from the moment we reached the revolving motorcycle fountains outside the front door to the NASCAR themed room and the many choppers and antique cars on display inside. We were greeted and seated right away by the large open fire grill which kept us cozy and warm throughout dinner. The menu is reasonably priced and the proportions are large enough to split. My husband and I shared The Full Throttle. It includes pulled pork, brisket, ribs, chicken, smoked sausage and served with Backfire fries, cole slaw, baked beans and toast. My daughter had the Wing Combo (Sweet, BBQ and Buffalo), my son feasted on ribs and Sylas enjoyed chicken strips with fries off the kiddy menu. There really was so much food even for my massive appetite teens. We ended up taking half of our food home.
By the time we finished dinner I was pretty sure the staff and diners knew my name because the whole time we were there Sylas kept repeating over and over “Auntie Mayas (Maila) look-car-wow….Auntie Mayas- look-bike-wow….Auntie Mayas-look-fire-wow….Auntie Mayas-look-piggy-wow…”. So for one last wow we put him on a chopper. By the looks of his face, I’m pretty sure he was riding on sweet dreams that night.
