“The Barn Door has been serving Odessa's best steaks for decades. The restaurant incorporates the old railroad depot from Pecos, moved to this site in 1972. Among the highlights is the fresh bread and hunk of cheddar cheese given to each diner – before the feast arrives. Amidst the steaks, the 'garlic crusted steak bits' are a standout.”
