This is my favorite restaurant!! Authentic Mexican cuisine, but the best item on the menu is the three meat pineapple dish. It's an 11 minute drive from GabbyAnn's Getaway, but it's DEFINITELY worth it.

People come from all over the state -- and even from other states -- to eat some incredible ice cream, shop for locally grown produce, or experience the quaint atmosphere of the Red Barn. It isn't a place to eat a full meal, but the ice cream (did I mention the ice cream?) makes it a great place for a quick treat. It's only 0.9 miles from GabbyAnn's Getaway, so be sure to check it out!
