Backyard Grill first opened in Kenilworth in 2011 at 500 Boulevard right in the center of town (they are located at the corner of the Boulevard and N. 20th Street). The restaurant specializes in American and Portuguese cuisine. Guests can enjoy a variety of dishes including salads, sandwiches, items off the grill such as BBQ chicken, ribs, salmon, and steak, and more. The restaurant is also known for chef’s creations including shrimp in garlic sauce, picadinho, and many other dishes that customers love. Backyard Grill typically offers an area for customers to dine in but during the pandemic, they are offering take-out and delivery options for customers to enjoy the menu items at home. “Kenilworth has always been a great town for business”, said Miguel Caputto, owner and manager. “It is a strong community and the people get together to make it happen. Together, we are going to survive.”
