Why is EVERYTHING around here so outrageously expensive? I went in after a few years away from town and will admit it was cleaner than I remember. Ordered a 12 ounce bottle of Shiner Bock... $5.00 plus tax! I could've walked across the street, gone...More

I had lunch here with my adult son. We started with the smoked wings, which were very good (and at a reduced price during lunch!). We both got ribs as an entree - mine was a basket, his was a platter. Curiously, mine were tiny,...More

My family and I go to the Broken Barrel Tavern 3-4 times a year, it's always pretty busy but a fun place to go, the staff are always accommodating and the food is excellent!
