It is a quarter of seven, on a cold December 6th night in 2014, and I just left the Lexington, Ky, 397 Waller Avenue, Backyard Burger. I want to extend a very loud shout out to my people there working this evening. We have the lovely Nissa, who greeted me, and ever charmingly sold me on a promo that she had in hand, thus reducing my expense. We have the masters of their domain, in Chris and Carl, holding down the back of the house, and expertly crafting my order. And lastly, the man with the plan, Rob, who completes the show, like a BOSS. I have been in the hospitality biz for many a year, and I rarely indulge with ordering out, and it showed, because I think I was the worst customer in the world, and the crew working Backyard this night, were AMAY- ZAH- ZING. I must have changed my order three different times, but many props to the professionals there, because they never skipped a beat. Chris and Carl were still all smiles and know how to get it done. Nissa saved me some money, by offering me an alternative to my original order, and this after I had already decided, but she offered still. Anyone else would likely have ignored an opportunity to offer a greater value to a customer who had already, technically placed the order. Rob took the opportunity to use my lack of decisiveness (going back into the computer to re-adjust my order) as a teachable moment to a fellow coworker, and I was the one who left apologizing for the trouble. These consummate pros at Backyard Waller, are beyond gifted with their mastery of customer service. The food of course was awesome, but the effort to put my order together and complete the sale? …well, these individuals need to school other restaurants in this town for their graciousness, skill, patience, kindness and flat out ninja like ability, to exceed expectation. If those that read these words ever get a craving for Backyard Burger, do yourself the honor to visit with these fine folks on Waller Avenue(Chris, Carl, Nissa, Rob, and I am certain the rest of their crew), and tell them that the man who could not make up his mind, said that you and your crew are the shining definition, of superior salesmanship and service. Thank you all and stay frosty. ~Chris

Nothing great, nothing terrible. Burger was good but not in my top 10. Coleslaw was bad. Chili was ok. No ants on my drink like another reviewer mentioned. Stick with a burger and this place is slightly above average.

Very pricey burger shop. Not really worth the cost.

Backyard burgers really do taste like they were cooked on a home grill. Everything is a notch above average. It is my favorite hamburger, even though prices are on the high side.
