You know going to the Beef n Barrel that you will always get great food. Get to the Beef n Barrel before 5 O'clock or you will need to wait in line for a seat. That tells you something about the food and value.

We had a very nice meal. The roast beef was very good. My wife had the filet mignon and she enjoyed it very much. We also ordered ice cream sundaes for dessert and they were monsterous and delicious.
