The Backyard Grille, on the corner of Highway 66 and Highway J in Custer Wisconsin, has a wide variety of food including burgers and sandwiches that are affordable and delicious. They also make homemade pizzas and have daily specials like Friday fish fries and Sunday chicken dinners.

Noah Jung, a student of Stevens Point Area Senior High (SPASH), and an employee of the Backyard Grille said, “It’s just a fun place to work and a fun place to be. Everyone is always having a good time and the food is incredible.”

The Backyard Grille specializes in their burgers, which burgers are “fresh, never frozen, hand pattied burgers, cooked to your preference,” Jung said. Jung’s personal preference is the homemade pizza, but he also likes to have the fish fry on Friday which is the number one ordered that night. Some customers come every Friday just for the fish fry dinner.
