Well, it didn't take too much persuading. We went there for lunch. It hadn't changed much from the old Peaches I remember. What I think was the Barn Buster has long been and still is the Rancher at Peaches. The fries are thick-cut and lightly seasoned. They also still offer fried chicken, but the menu has morphed into one like you'd find at an independent burger joint--soups, a variety of sandwiches etc.

But it's nice to go back to a building that probably hasn't changed in 30 years. All the discussion on this thread definitely brings back really old and fond memories, especially the salad and sundae bars.

Was it Red Barn that had the jingle "I can get a sundae, even on a Monday?" Or was that someone else?

It's great to see an old familiar face still being utilized today. Where is this Peaches located?

There was a Red Barn restaurant in Lakeland Florida that just burned down recently. It was acutally a red barn that was made into a steakhouse. Very popular and very good. I think they are rebuilding. It was located on Hwy. 92.

Yes, Greymo, pray tell how we are to unwind 5 pages of comments dating back several years to respond to your "objection?" I think your timing is a bit off.

Actually, it is quite easy.

The admins simply change a single parameter identifying this thrad - it's forum code - and wah lah - presto chango it appears in the other thread. No cutting or pasting involved.

Greymo is correct, it needs to be moved before the roadfood purists have a fit over it existing in non-FFF space.

Well I think it's kind of petty, to say the least, but with this precedence now established, I think one can easily go through many, many non-FF threads and find subject threads, references, comments and discussions relating to "chains." Just a few examples, Krystal burgers, Longhorn Steakhouses, Popeyes Chicken, Maruca's NJ Pizza, KFC, White Castles, Church's Chicken, Cowboy Chicken, Shakey's, etc. etc. etc. Even the reference to the famous Frank Pepe's Pizzeria (now a chain) in the World's Best Pizza thread, maybe it should be moved? The sensibilities of some folks . . . .

The Red Barn in Kenosha, WI was 2 blocks from my grandparents home. The building is still there & has had many different restaurant incarnations over the years.

There is a restaurant in Racine, WI called The Farm & they might've been a Red Barn, but am not sure. They now have awesome frozen custard cones.

I remember the Red Barn being in many small cities in upstate New York in the 70's. This was right after getting out of the Air Force and being able, for the first time, to get away on long road trips. I always ate their chicken, which was fried under pressure.

I have never come across a comprehensive explanation of why this chain folded. The architecture of their building was so unique that, unless the building was extensively remodeled, even today you immediately recognize it as a former Red Barn.

I grew up eating at the Red Barn, it's was located on Electric Avenue, Lewistown, Pa. The building is still there but it's a Chinese Buffet joint now.

I do miss it, I may have to include a visit to Bradford on an upcoming bike trip.....

I think the Chat and Chew is one of only three barns still standing in the Warren-Youngstown area.

There used to be a Rd Barn here in Schertz,back in the 1970s on the acess road of I-35 North and FM3009.They even had a big cowboy figure standing out front. Where the red Barn stood is a Valero Gas Station and the whole area has changed.What used to be country is now a WalMart,Whataburger,Jack in the Box,etc.
The cowboy figure is now out in Boerne,outside of some restraunt off I-10 West.

I managed many Red Barns and was also a district manager before Motel 6 bought us and put us out of work. There wasn't a Barn in Cleveland Hts., but there was one on Mayfield Rd. in South Euclid. I managed that one towards the end of the company.

The Red Barn was a fast-food restaurant chain founded in the early-1960s in Dayton, Ohio by Harry Barmier.

Red Barn restaurants were in the shape of barns with a glass front and limited seating. Three mascots were used in the franchise's commercials: "Hamburger Hungry" (who looked similar to Ernie from Sesame Street), "Chicken Hungry" (a chicken leg), and "Fish Hungry" (a blue fish.)

Some of the most popular items on Red Barn's menu were the "Big Barney" (a hamburger similar to a Big Mac) and the "Barnbuster" (similar to a Quarter Pounder.) The restaurants had coloring books, crayons and iron-ons for kids, and they also gave away a free glass with a meal. The food was served in cardboard barn-shaped boxes.

The restaurant chain had a TV commercial jingle whose lyrics were: "When the hungries hit / When the hungries hit / Hit the Red Barn."

Servomation bought the company in the late-1960s and then Motel 6 bought it in the late-1970s. They ceased advertising, and the last franchising leases expired around 1986; most of the old buildings were converted for use by other restaurants. At its peak, Red Barn had 400 restaurants in 19 states as well as southern Ontario in Canada.

My friends have told me many times to post a site with my items, but I wonder who would look at it? SOOO the link below will take you to the only known site of The RED BARN fast food chain. Over the next few weeks I will post everything that will fit on my server, from give aways to corp. papers and even blue prints.

I loved the Red Barn and I am responding to this post because the link still works and brings back a world of memories, not the least of which was sitting in the back seat of my parents' brand new 1964 Ford Galaxy 500, reading the EXTRA edition of the New Castle News with the headline "KENNEDY ASSASINATED", and enjoying a three piece chicken meal ($0.59!) in the parking lot of the Red Barn on Wilmington Avenue, New Castle, PA, 11/22/1963.

I was young when the restaurant closed, and I barely remember the restaurant, but I still have my "Red Barn Magic Record" It's a single record, but each side has three songs - "Put the needle down at the outside edge of the record - and you never know what song will play." Side one plays Engineer Bill, Under the Double Eagle or Mechanical Man. Side two plays Hungries Theme, Hungries Club Song or Hungries March. My own kids are nearly grown now, but we still get it out once in a while and sing along!

There was a RED BARN in Northfield, NJ, on Tilton RD. near US RT. 9. About 7 miles from Atlantic City.

The local top 40 AM radio station (WMID) used to play the "When the Hungries hit", jingle more than the top 40!

Growing up in Euclid OH in the mid-60s, I used to eat occassionally at that Cleveland Heights diner.

A former Red Barn on the west side of Milwaukee was reborn as OSCAR'S, a burger and frozen custard place. The distinctive barn shape remains, although the building is now covering in shingles and they added a sunroom to the front.

I sure do remember Red Barn. In the mid ' 60s, we lived in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood, and there was a Red Barn on 75th St. just west of Exchange Ave. and the I.C. tracks. Only got to eat there a few times, but I really liked the burgers; I remember them as tasting even better than McDonald's. There's a former Red Barn still standing in Chicago Heights IL, just off Joe Orr Road. It's currently occupied by ( I think ) a liquor store.

wow, I remember a Red Barn in Overland Park, KS, on Metcalf, in the 60's, THE burger place, well, along with Smacks, in the suburbs of KC.

My brother worked at Smacks at 95th & Mission in Prairie Village in 1970, Smack-a-roo was their big mac.
