Great food. Great service. I visit this restaurant breakfast, lunch and dinner many times. I also carry out for company coming to my home. I utilize the catering service for events such as Christmas dinners, reunions and other social events. The addition to the main restaurant is beautifully decorated for Christmas dinners as is the main area. The bakery offerings--including... More

I had dinner on a Friday night. A buffet was available, but I ordered from the menu which came with a trip to the salad bar. The menu was short, with pork for most of the choices. I selected the only beef plate and had some tasty, if somewhat juicy, sliced brisket. The sides were typical of a BBQ restaurant.... More

Bar-B-Q Barn is an average barbecue eatery. They offer lots of menu choices and the service is usually good but the food is just average. Their salad bar is overpriced and not as good as it once was. Also, their restrooms are very small and the day we visited one was out of order.

I have tried BBQ every we have visited. BBQ Barn is the best there is! Lunch of BBQ sandwich, fries and drink only $5, which less than you probably at McDonalds. Oh and the pies are to die for, home made creme horns, cookies, brownies; you name it they have it. Didn't get the salad bar it looked pretty delicious.... More

Bar B Que Barn served excellent ribs. Salad bar was huge with lots of choices. As you leave, you must try your pick of lovely baked goods. Mini cream horns are wonderful.

We ate here on a Saturday evening, and would expect to have fresh food in the sald bar, not so. My husband said the ribs he ordered were the worse he has ever tasted. My fried catfish was mushy, the fried potatoes that came with it were a pile of grease. I give it two stars only because it was... More

I would definitely not go out of your way for this BBQ. I stumbled upon the place while driving through and love BBQ so I stopped. The pulled pork was dry and didn't have much smoke flavor. The sauces were also nothing to write home about. Well below average! I would not recommend this place.

I've been here for breakfast twice and this place can really make an omlette! The staff is polite and attentive, though why they have their salad bar set up at 730 in the morning is a little beyond me. I did order their brisket as a take out and I have never seen such tough, fatty brisket in my life.... More
