Just finished one of the best hot roast beef and mashed potatoes sandwiches...ever! Real home made mashed potatoes covered by wonderfully seasoned brown gravy. Beef was melt in your mouth tender. Taking pie home! Fast service, too!

We went to the Barn for breakfast but it is currently closed due to a fire and the waitress at another place said the owner had passed away and they didn't know if they would open again.
