The Backcountry Burger

The Backcountry Burger consists of hand-pressed locally sourced certified Black Angus Colorado beef topped with bacon-onion jam, distinctive Tillamook white cheddar cheese and Back Country’s own sauce. With a finishing touch of  sliced pickles served on a buttery brioche bun, this burger is an experience not to be missed.

White Bison Burger

The All American-ish Burger

This burger is grilled using a House Blend of Brisket and Chuck, thin patties and is topped with American Cheese.  Assembled on a buttered sesame seed bun topped with shredded lettuce, bacon, and zippy burger sauce.  The sauce is the “ish” vs. your standard special sauce, its a little top secret, but the base is Japanese mayo with sriracha, horseradish, and mustard.

The Twilight Zone Burger

First sighted in 2014, the Twilight Zone was created by a bizarre phenomenon which combined melted peanut butter and Back Door’s top-secret fry sauce. Prepare for a taste bud abduction when biting into this one! Paired with cheddar cheese, crispy bacon, and creamy sriracha, the Twilight Zone will surely launch you into an alternate universe of apocalyptic flavor and paranormal texture.
