About Us

Brisket, ribs, a full bar, outdoor patio, friendly service, locally owned -- should we keep going?

Back Forty, a term used to describe the back forty acres of cattle ranchers land is a local restaurant founded in historical Smithfield in 2013. We chose this old feed store building because we love the agricultural history of Smithfield now known as North Richland Hills. We feel that the new Tex Rail train and having our restaurant on the corner gives the location the same small-town feel it used to have.

BBQ is as important to Texas as its history. We put the same amount of care into curating our bbq as we did in choosing the location. Our prime brisket and other meats are smoked low and slow on post oak along with our home-cooked sides and the ever so addicting banana pudding made from scratch daily.

If you are looking for great bbq with an old-timey Texas feel, stop by Back Forty Smokehouse. Ride the train in or just sit on our patio with a frozen schooner and listen to it whistle as its passing through.
