My family and I have been going there for the past two decades. The service and food have become quite a disappointment over the years. It is not the same place that it once was. ...

Editorial review from Citysearch 5/30/2014

Never again will I go back. First the prices are outrageous. I paid $10.99 for undercooked grilled chicken. The girls had the kids tenders they should have said kids tender one tenet with fries $5.99 ridiculous and bad tasting. I guess we have to pay for all the upgrades. If you want good steaks go to Logans. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/1/2013

The food and service are always great at the Little Red Barn. Been eating her for at least 45 of their 50 years. I love the fact that you get your salad as soon as you sit down because when you're hungry you want to start your meal right away! This is a great place to take the family, celebrate a special occasion or bring your out of town guests for a great meal without all the drama of high end atmosphere or high end prices, \r more

Great steakhouse at a great price! 4/25/2012

I have been going to the Little Red Barn since I was child. The food is great and the baked potatoes are always steaming hot!!! Eating there is like eating with family. I highly recommend the original chicken fried steak...an all time favorite. more

couldn't even identify type of steak! 1/11/2012

My husband and I went there after seeing ads on TV. Seemed like a good place to get a steak. We ordered a filet of tenderloin and the large sirloin. When our plates arrived the meat looked nothing like a filet or sirloin! The filet which I've had many times is ususally 2-3 inches thick. This one was 1/2"" and looked like they had butterflied it, which even at 1"" I've never seen one that thin. It was tender but tasted like a tenderizer had been used on it. My husband's sirloin didn't look like any meat you would serve to a person. It was only about 1/4"" thinck and was so full of gristle that he could only eat less than 1/4 of it. The rest was all waste. I wouldn't feed that to my dog. We were very dumfounded as to how this restaurant is still in business with the poor quality of meat they serve. I assume most people must order the fried shrimp or burgers. Maybe they are okay. But, for the price we paid- $19 per steak it was a rip off. You can go to Texas Land and Cattle and get a real steak for that price! more

BEST STEAKHOUSE.....PERIOD!!!! 12/14/2011

I have retired from the Army and having said that, I have eaten in many steakhouses around the world and many are good but do not measure up to the Little Red Barn. It is a family owned business that was opened in 1963. The atmosphere is wonderful, the service is friendly and fast, and the food is wonderful. The steaks are made to order exactly as you want it. The seafood, especially the shrimp, is above awesome. If you want a good steak, great prices, wonderful service and good atmosphere, this is the place to go. more

Still a great steakhouse! 11/11/2011

This was my first job right out of high school in 1966. The owners embraced their staff as extended family. As a waitress, I was very proud to wear the cowgirl skirt and vest outfit with boots, hat and all! I dined there recently and it is good to know that they still carry on this tradition which adds to the atmosphere of this western themed steakhouse. Most importantly, the steaks are still the best in town! The high standard of friendly service continues to this day. The Hernandez family has carried on the superb quality of this outstanding restaurant. more

Still a nice place for dinner 10/10/2011

This place has always been a favorite. It is a little more special than your average chain run steakhouse. The atmosphere is downhome and unpretentious. There are no old gas station emblems, coke posters or cute decor items that you will see everywhere you go. The food is fine and the prices are in check. After reading the other reviews I was a bit nervous about going back, but I am glad we did. It has a special place in our hearts. Will definitely will go back more

Poor quality/cheap prices 9/18/2011

I had great hopes as I had heard many rave reviews. I tried it twice, thinking maybe it was an off night the first time. I should have known better. The truth is that the food is just of poor quality. That is also reflected in the price, it is very affordable. more

Terrible place for ""steak."" 5/8/2011

My husband and I stopped by this place on our way home evening. He had heard everyone rant and rave about it so we figured we'd give it a shot. When we first got there our hostess showed us to our table and put two salads down for us. I'm a huge salad person but these were just gross. The lettuce was hit or miss....some pieces were edible others were like the lettuce you get when you leave it in the bag in the refridgerator for too long. more

Great deal 3/13/2011

Very good food here the green beans are to die for!The price was very reasonable and the service was alright! more

Never Again! 1/28/2011

Use to be a good restaurant many years ago - not anymore! We had a large party and everyone complained about something. The steaks tasted sour!Seems like they had been left to defrost in water for many hours. Someone else found a fly in the baked potato, the chicken fried steak was burnt and the food was cold when served. We shared our experience with others, only to find that they also had the same complaints. more

San Antonio Best Steak for the money. !!! 6/9/2010

I have been going to the Little Red Barn for over 25 years. I have had a pleasurable eating experience everytime I have gone. Which is about once a week. The Steaks are served fresh and Hot . Always a Big baked potato and soft, warm, delicious dinner rolls. And the friendliest servers in San Antonio. The family owned and run restaurant is just like home. There are other steak places in town but I promise you can't find a better steak place for the money. Very resonably priced ! Always something to drink in your glass and always a tasty hot meal served at The Little Red Barn. Pros: Great service, food & Great value!! very clean envirnment Cons: That there is only one. more

Great shrimp 6/4/2010

I know, I know, it's a steak house but the shrimp is outstanding! They make the tartar sauce fresh every day just like they do their salad dressings........from scratch. I just recently discovered they have green beans on the menu and are they buttery, sooo good. They serve them in a separate bowl because they are so buttery and juicy. Try the fish and shrimp combo if you don't want steak. You will love it, I quarantee. Pros: Fresh Food more

Awesome steakhouse!! 6/3/2010

Thank you to Nancy at Little Red Barn!! She hosted a fundraiser for us - about 100 people. The service was excellent & very quick (for 100 people that says a lot)!!!! The food was very good and we had a huge portion for a very economical price! Looking for a place to hold a big gathering?? Little Red barn is it!! Amazing!! We will be back with other big crowds! Pros: Excellent food & service!! more

Worst Steak ever 2/12/2010

We are in SA ever year for the stock show and eat at the Red Barn once and sometimes twicw during our stay. This year was by far the worst. I ordered a medium steak and got a well done. The waitress could not keep up with everyone (party orf 6) and the lady at the checkout acted as if she was mad at the world. Maybe she had just eaten a steak, too, Anyway, we wont ever go back. Pros: Good salad Cons: Steak was terrible. more

Without Question the Worst Steak Ever!!! 12/20/2009

(Written by Cliff, my Husband) I have not been to the Little Red Barn in years. Being in San Antonio to visit friends and family we stopped in last night and had the worst meal of my life. I had read some of the reviews and told myself, No way their accurate. We?ll I?m here to tell you they were. I didn?t have the heart to tell the woman who past our table 2-3 times and asked how our meal was. The fact that I was raised on a cattle ranch and was weaned on beef and never found a use for steak sauce until last night should have been a tell-tell sign. When leaving I overheard others saying they had their worst meal in 20 years. Cons: quality of food more
