We split the Porterhouse. It was seasoned and cooked to perfection, but served just a little cold. The baked potato was delicious. Tried the twice baked potato too. It inside was awesome but baking twice makes the skin more cooked than I happen to prefer.

I have not been to The Barn Door in years. You used to sell a bean burger that was out of this world. I don't see it on the menu. Do you still serve this. I know it had fritos and avocado in it.
