Anyone Remember Red Barn? Sun, 09/16/12 10:21 AM (permalink)
As long as we are reminiscing about defunct fast food chains, anyone remember Red Barn.  I remember them opening up in East Lansing, MI, after McDonald's was already established.  They had indoor sit-down seating when McDonald's was still only outdoor walk-up.  They had the Big Barney before the Big Mac and the Barn Buster before the Quarter Pounder.  They even had a salad bar.  In East Lansing, they did a pretty good business with Mickey D right next door. 
After I moved away, I never saw many of them and they seemed to disappear all together.  Like Lum's (which also did well in East Lansing).
I liked Red Barn but somehow in fast food, the fittest don't always survive.
