Very good spot for some bbq when in the Harrisburg area. Restaurant has great antiques and old photos on all of the walls. Usually crowded for the lunch crowd but worth the wait.

I had the ribs and my husband the brisket. The ribs were tender and flavorful but my husband's brisket was a bit dry, though the taste was good and the sauces on the table were very good. The salad bar had a nice selection. I was hoping for burnt ends but apparently we were too far from Kansas City to... More

Was just at the Bar-BQ-Barn over the Labor Day weekend. Stopped in at what looked to be close to closing time (based upon their posted times) but they had no problem serving us. Had the $5.00 pork sandwiches that included fries and it was crazy delicious. They have a salad bar which comes with many of the dinners on the... More

The salad bar was enough to fill you up. It was very clean and had many options. The blackened catfish as the entrée was amazing. I would definitely go back!

While spending a short getaway in Shawnee National Forest, a local young woman recommended this casual local bbq restaurant. Both my husband and I had the beef brisket, potatoes and the included salad bar. The salad bar was very simple and the items were not my favorite, nonetheless, the beef brisket, was nicely cooked and delicious. My baked potato and... More

Everything on the menu is fresh and delicious. The salad bar is always clean and fresh, also. It's also a great place to see friends from all over Saline County. The owners and staff are friendly and go out of their way to make your dining experience a good one. The only issue is their prices have steadily increased and... More

My husband and I are in Harrisburg, from out of town, visiting family in the area. We decided to stop in for lunch yesterday and had a great experience! My husband had the pulled pork sandwich with slaw and baked beans, our nephew had a cheeseburger and fries, and I had the all you can eat salad bar which was... More
