Stopped by while traveling. Clean enough place for a nice lunch. We were amazed at the pie! The waitress offered us pie when we sat down and said it would not be there when we were finished! She was right! It was amazing! We shared a piece of coconut cream. Delicious. We both ordered the BBQ pork sandwich with fries.... More

When I'm in a new town I try to find local places to eat rather than fall back on familiar chains - sometimes that works and sometimes not. I found a winner here. Their $5 pork sandwich special was delicious, lots of cool local photos on the walls, nice and friendly waitstaff. Can't beat that.

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 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
