As you can tell from the pics, it was a packed crowd and I know why! The food was absolutely delicious, you just can’t beat the $40 price tag, oh and did I forget to mention cocktails were included! Barn and Company is also known for their BBQ, the self-proclaimed smokehouse and BBQ shack has all you can eat Ribs every Thursday. I will definitely be back and I recommend that you stop by as well!
