Great Lunch Buffet

If you're ever going to, or driving through, Mt Vernon, Oklahoma, I recommend you stop and eat at The Red Barn. Awesome home style lunch buffet.

All parties had the Chicken Fried Steak. It was outstanding, with plenty of leftovers to take home. All homemade food. Bring an appetite.

Great buffet for $9.95. Everything very good. The pies looked so good we bought for later because we ate too much of the buffet.
