“Trust me, you have NEVER had food like this in Australia”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

I, like a lot of fella's love ribs and BBQ.......... what I THOUGHT was BBQ. This food is like NOTHING you have had in Australia. This business takes so very much care in their preparation. The ribs do not have one trace of fattiness, just awesome flavour that leaves you admitting that you will never indulge in ribs anywhere else. In truth I can never go back to 'Normal' ribs, it is Back Porch or nothing. And the pulled pork........... OMG, again no fattiness (Obviously the result of much expensive trimming and skill), flavour like you have never experienced and this awesome slaw that resembles a fresh crisp salad rather than a gluggy mess. Ladies and gentlemen there are always 'must see's' anywhere you go. Next time I am in Cairns I will especially make the trip to Atherton to see these guys. This is what food should be, artisanal, fresh, clean flavoured, substantial and leaves you feeling wonderful not fatty. Honestly this is some of the best food I have ever had period.

“Best Southern BBQ in Austrlia”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

The food that is produced and served by Back Porch Barbque is truly authentic south US style, BBQ ribs are great with a true smokey flavour due to the slow smoking. The BBQ sauce, which is their creation, is superb.
If you want a true taste of the south of the USA you will find the van at Platypus Park in Atherton or at the local markets on the weekends.
