‘Back In The Day’ Features Homestyle Cooking and Service

Spencer Bennett

Whenever a new restaurant opens in the area, it quickly becomes the ‘go to’ place to eat. But will it have the staying power over the long run?

This Valentines Day, my wife Moe and I decided to try out Back In The Day, the new restaurant that took over the old Michael’s building, on Illinois near Midland Drive. Most eateries around the area experience a long wait, even when it’s not a big date night, so we were pleasantly surprised when we were seated within about 8 minutes. The exterior belies the decorated interior; with the walls adorned with facades of an old move theater, post office, church and even a dentist’s office.

The servers were friendly and fast with our order, which at Back In The Day, is served ‘family style': Big heaping servings everyone passes around the table. We had the fried chicken with homestyle mashed potatoes, green beans and buttermilk biscuits. (Umm, Umm)! Iy you come in expecting the best of your momma’s cooking, you won’t be disappointed. We caught ourselves saying more than once, “This is how we used to make it!”. Come with an appetite though and plan to stay for one of their homemade desserts!

Have you tried Back In The Day yet?
