The Barn Door has been a celebration place all of my life!! It was getting a bit tired & dark by today's standards. We revisited on a Thursday evening and chose to sit in the bar to watch the basketball semifinals. Our steaks were outstanding!!...More

Food was of excellent quality and so was the service. Old-style ranch decor I suppose. Apparently a big hit with locals. Try the queso sirloin. Plenty of parking. Accessible to much of the city in mere minutes.

Came to the barn door on vacation with a large group of family. The service was very good. The building/setup was nice. I ordered a New York Strip, which, for whatever reason was the best I've ever had!

Great for inexpensive meal, but with all of the chefs in town opening up restaurants this place probably doesn't stand a chance. It's dark and musty inside, staff is friendly and accommodating. Just not our cup of tea.

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.
