It's hard to have a beef when it comes to the Beef Barn in North Smithfield, RI. One of the great lunch and dinner

values in Western Civilization for nearly 40 years, it's not a stretch to order a sandwich, drink, fries, drink for around $5.00. The Beef Barn specializes in delicious roast beef (they make about 500 sandwiches a day), although one can not go wrong with other sandwiches like tuna, hamburger or chicken. Desserts vary; we once sampled a wonderful carrot cake.

The atmosphere is incredibly appealing with its silo (once part of a real farm), a huge, authentic indoor stone wall covered with antiques, wood carvings, an open kitchen, and "nooks and crannies" side rooms that feature mock chicken cages in the walls and other rural farm accents. The 85-seat restaurant features a counter with stools, and booths and tables.

The Beef Barn sits on the Woonsocket line in Northern Rhode Island, which is kind of like Green Acres being juxtaposed with three deckers and other urban elements. Even though the Beef Barn rests on a busy street near the city, its rural charm and family-friendly atmosphere, great value and service keep the crowds coming in to enjoy a home away from home, country-like dining experience.
