The Back 9 in Addison closed shop for a few days to give the bar and grill a fresh coat of paint, and do a little remodeling. You will find the new space more inviting, and the food a little more inventive. For those that travel to some of Addison’s hot spots and are not especially fond of the smoke, you will also find that the Back 9 has taken some measures to improved that situation as well, with added ventilation and a non-smoking area. In the next few days you will also some new furnishings that were held up by the snow storms in the East.
We checked in to the Back 9 to plow through some of the new menu, and enjoy an old favorite that is a bit over the top. The Friday Burger is definitely wacky with its juicy half pound patty, topped with bacon, fresh jalapenos, fries, cheese sticks and a fried egg for good measure. It is not for everyone, but for those that love a good challenge, this burger is for you. We asked one of the staff to help us eat the burger and it was actually larger than her head.
Other items that are must try include the queso which has plenty of ingredients, including a massive amount of sausage. The chicken wrap is legit, as are the quesadillas.
One item we particularly enjoyed was the fried corn which was addictive with its sweet gooey center, and crisp outer shell.
There are plenty of events coming up soon including a Mr Puniverse Contest (ohh yea, ladies), a UFC watching party Saturday, and of course the Super Bowl. We understand that Back 9 will reserve tables, so give them a call for the big game. Happy to see this Addison spot revitalized.
