This restaurant, noted for its barbecue and catfish, is located in a building that housed a train station years ago. In keeping with the property's history, the decor features wood plank floors, old photos and an electric train that constantly circles the dining room. Locals tend to hang out here. The menu features Southern-style vegetables and daily specials. What might take some diners by surprise are the frequently offered Creole-style dishes and sauces. The chef here hails from New Orleans. Ask for the Muffaletta, even it is not listed on the daily specials menu, and you would surely return for more!
Barb-A-Rosa's restaurant is family-owned and operated. There are several tables and it does a brisk lunch trade, although a large portion of the eatery's business is take-out orders. Step up to the counter and order pulled pork barbecue or ribs with all of the fixings. The sandwiches are piled high with smoky barbecue meat and topped with slaw, unless you specify otherwise. The beans here are slightly hot, the coleslaw is creamy and the barbecue sauce is dark and tangy. If you are feeling hungry anytime, you know where to head.
