Our Story

Burnette_family_portraitDo you dream? We do. All day long – from sunny, lazy Sundays to celebratory Fridays and every day in between – while standing over a smoker anticipating the savory, smoky delights.

We dreamed about opening a restaurant on our back porch in Houston, Texas in spring 2011. Our desire to live this one life doing what we love to do most – make people smile with good food and fun – soon became our reality. With some hard work and the kindness of the friendliest people in Texas, we opened The Back Porch in April 2012.

I invite you to step onto The Back Porch and let us help your desire for slow-cooked, home-inspired and down-right delicious BBQ, sides and desserts be satisfied. I can’t wait to share our journey, our recipes and our dreams with you!

See you on the Back Porch!
