BBQ Barn is a great place to take the family. There is something on the menu for everyone. They have daily specials and wonderful home baked pies, cookies, and my favorite , creme horns! The BBQ sandwich is very good, if I'm really hungry I get the BBQ brisket dinner....the salad bar is fresh and delicious. Love the atmosphere and... 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

Very good dry rub smoke, put your own sauce on your food at the table. Having never had catfish before and a bit leery, instead of bringing us out just a bit to try, they actually brought out an entire fillet - at no charge ! It was GREAT !! Real fried potatoes, just like Mom just to make. Compared... More

We were there on a night when there wasn't a large crowd. However, the service was slow, they were out of many things and the server could have cared less.

Being from Memphis Tennessee, we can be somewhat snobby when it comes to BBQ. I mean, we have world famous BBQ there. So when we went to the Bar BQ Barn in Harrisburg, IL. I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was a pleasant surprise. I got the chopped pork sandwich and my wife got the smoked turkey sandwich. The... More
