The Back Porch Restaurant, serving your community for over 30 years.

What makes a legend? Time, tradition, people - whatever the combination, Jackie and Vicki Clayton have build a legend at the Back Porch.

The Claytons have owned the Back Porch for since 1990 but the history goes back to the 1960s when the business was a pool hall owned by Harry Crow.

Jackie said the place was "pool tables from front to back" until the early 70s when Bill Terrell and Walt Madison bought it and turned it into a sandwich shop.

Jackie said Alvin Ords owned it for a short while in the mid 70s, but in the early 80s Doyle and Karen Thomas and Lisa and Billy Holbrooke bought what was then Burgers and Fries and the Back Porch was born. The Back Porch was almost lost when a fire destroyed the building in 1984, but was rebuilt and history continued.

In January of 1990, the Claytons bought the Back Porch, opened for supper business, and it's been going strong ever since.
