A neighborhood restaurant with some of the best steaks you'll ever taste. Chicken poppers are a nice appetizer, or small plate meal. The blue ribbon filet is always cooked to perfection. Portions are large enough to split, and the wine list is extensive. Homemade pies...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.

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.
