This place started out gangbusters. Lots of food that tasted good and service that was not to bad. That was my first visit. Second visit still good food and lots of it but the service was less than fair. Third visit was with three other people and they got it right. Good to fair service and the food was still better than average so for good food and more than enough to eat we can live with it. But, our last visit was not that great. Service was better but I had to send my first plate back because of a bad tasteing meat. The Avacoto Dip was oily or wattery and not up to standard. The wife asked for butter for her bread and they brought her some type of oil. She was told that that was the only type of butter they had. Such a wrong answer. We are going to give tham a couple weeks then go back again to see if one they are still open and two they have their act together. And, yes we will ask for butter to put on the bread and hope we don't get oil again. We were so pleased when they first opened and the food was so good it is a shame that what ever happened to them happened. I only hope they can correct the problems and not close. I wish them well.

They had it in for you when you walked in the door when they could tell you couldn't spell avocado or watery.They are going to give you a second chance if you brush up on your elementary spelling skills.

Why would anyone trust a review by a person with bad grammar and spelling? If you speak the way you write, it's possible the waiter couldn't understand you.

It is Mt Holly and I thought everybody there spoke (and wrote) like that!

Your experience is not unique there. We are all feeling it. It is the Mount Holly syndrom. At first you success, then fail and fail again.

I will refrain from commenting on the posts about my language skills as they are not the issue and I agree that I made the errors. No excuses. But, I will respond to those that were able to understand the post and actually post their thoughts on the restaurant. The employees that responded should take issue with the reasons for the post and correct them instead of slamming the poster. I still will give the restaurant another shot next month and I know they will know me when I enter. I will be wearing my dunce cap.

The fact remains, there are too many people with a little cash, and money from the city council of mount holly, opening businesses that do not know how to sustain a business for the long term. The lessons they need to learn is CUSTOMER SERVICE, VALUE and EVERY CUSTOMER EVERY TIME. Too sad that they ignore these basic principals and lose in the end, after all of the money and efforts. When you are the business owner and employ people, you cannot rest on yesterday. It is all about the customer "right now".

Rick, I do believe you are the only intelligent person to comment on my post. I was trying to convey that this restarunt served great food in abundant amounts the first time and seemed to slip a little on each subsequent visit. The food portions alone indicated they would not be able to continue at that pace. I really enjoyed most of the food as did my wife and the guests I brought with me. Our last visit is what prompted my post as a serious decline in all areas was evident to both the wife and myself. Other than Christy's Restarunt Backwoods is the only other restarunt in Mount Holly that merits more than a sandwich and a beer. I do hope they can pull it together and stay open.

Yes, we do care. Sounds like employees or owner of Backwoods does not like hearing what everyone is thinking.

Well I am just going to let this go and not return to the restaurant. I do suggest that the few idiots that would rather slam me than try the restaurant and provide intelligent feedback to get a life.
Thank you Rick for being intelligent enough to understand the true purpose of this site.

Agree. Blame Mayor Hough and the council on this. When Mayor Hough was Mayor during his first term, there wasn't a starter home development that he didn't like. He and the council approved all of these starter home developments and never once attempted to get some upscale developments which would have brought more people to Mount Holly with more disposable income that they could have used at these downtown businesses.

So you get what you pay for..........

You really need to learn how to use proper grammar,and shorten your winding rhetorical sentences.

Example:Blame Mayor Hough and the council on this. When Mayor Hough was Mayor during his first term, there wasn't a starter home development that he didn't like.

Correction: During Mayor Hough's first term there weren't any starter home developments which he didn't like.

Cause when i was a kid back when i was a kid i was a kid and i went to school like a kid that was in school and learned like a kid in school back when i was still a kid in school i was still in school obviously because i wasn't out of school at that point obviously because i was still in school and enjoyed being in school back when i was in school wirth all the other kids that were in school with me back then when i was in school i thi nk a couple were in school back then too that thought they should be out of school but they couldn't because they were in school like me back when i was in school before i ran for office back then i was in school on the backside of the building at EG but now that i'm out it's back to the basic grammar i learnt back then when i was in school.

I guess Mount Holly was designed as the slum it is. I thought it became that way by accident.

Hough's house in Mount Holly was in Runny Meade. He was on city council and lead the charge to get the development approved. What do you think?....Then his buddy Lee told him to get a more prestigous address when he became mayor. Hough unloaded his box just before the real estate market crashed and his neighbors lost their homes in foreclosure because the builder was one that sold houses to people who could not afford them. Thanks Mr Hough.

Thanks for this insight Rick. This is just one of many questionable things that our good Mayor has done.

Is there not anyone in this town who thinks that it is unethical for Mayor Hough to be profiting off the Mount Holly taxpayer by selling his employee benefits package to the city. If not, then this is why Mount Holly is in such a sad state.

I live in Deerfield. It's not that prestigious.
