Backstreet Restaurant - Riverside, CA

Backstreet Restaurant
3735 Nelson Street
Riverside, CA 92506

I miss this place so much and am sad that I only recently heard about it through my former colleagues last year. This is a popular lunch spot on weekdays! They are only open from 11am-3pm Monday through Friday. Their sandwiches and condiment bar (pickles, relish, cucumbers, pasta salad, etc.) are delicious!! Another thing I love is that its decorations are very quirky and eclectic. Wish I had more pictures of their decor. I really can't tell you how much I enjoy their pickles, cucumbers, and pasta salad. I love how you can pick which items you want and how much of them you want!


Roast beef in a library... lol

Not pictured is their banana cream pie. I tried it because I saw positive ratings on Yelp and I had heard it was good as well. It was ok. It was definitely more like a creamy jello pudding with stiff whipped cream (not real whipping cream unless it was mixed with something that makes it hold its shape) than the homemade banana cream pies I prefer. I'll stick with eating their sandwiches and everything else!
