Ultimate dining experience like no other

For over 50 years. Backstreet has beeen serving some of the finest deli foods and Sandwiches in Riverside. We are located on Nelson St. between Magnolia Ave. and Brockton Ave.

A little History: In 1967, Mac & Barbara McCluskey bought the “Nelson Street Market” and renovated it into the “Backstreet Restaurant”.

In 2000 Mac & Barb were ready to retire. They sold the Backstreet to their youngest daughter Kitty and her husband Keith Holloway.

Keith and Kitty continue to cook and slice all the meat fresh every day and have kept everything the same as Mom & Dad. However, they have added a tuna sandwich as well as two salads. The Caesar salad has pistachios and the spinach salad has craisins, pistachios and shaved parmesan cheese with raspberry vinaigrette.

Each sandwich is served with a choice of Baked Beans, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw or Potato Chips, as well as a full pickle and fresh vegetable bar that also includes homemade Pasta Salad.





Choose as side: Baked Beans, Potato Salad, Bag of Chips
