    Are the Texas hot links back? I recall having them around when B&C first opened and thought they were the best thing on the menu. Then they were gone one day. Now I see "Hickory smoked sausage" on the menu. Same thing?

    Yes.

    Yes.
    Two links stand alone with fries and slaw, as part of our BBQ platter or The Memphis w/pulled pork, Monterey Jack and giardiniera on a roll run under the salamander.
    Sauce on the side, always, implied, axiomatic..........never a doubt, BBQ sauce without.

    As a vegetarian,

    I hope they did their forecasting. I don’t think that area will be flooded with “health conscious new customers. “ And I will go there, doesn’t Cité have the reputation of being one of the most expensive restaurants in the city with the worse food?

    Cité is awful. We were there years ago and it looked like it had seen better days. The food is way overpriced and it seems to cater to suburbanites and tourists looking for a fantastic view in an "elegant" setting.

    I'm not Barn's leading demo (many years removed from college) but have always thought the food was excellent (maybe save for wing night where they just had to keep bringing them out.)

    Do you need to expressly call out a "kale caesar salad with grilled chicken" or "shaved brussel sprouts w/ manchego" to lure in the customers they think they are lacking? You can eat pretty healthy at BBQ if you choose to.

    Now the service and drink prices often left a lot to be desired and caused me to get take out more than visit the place, but not sure how that will change in any new incarnation.

    More BBQ! More Hospitality please!

    Loved Barn!
    The main reason we didn't go as frequently were the fact that our butts lived up in Deerfield, and that parking in the city it a GIANT PAIN!
    1 thing won't change- the other is unlikely to change also...
    Will have to try to go in the very near future.
