Wathena – The Dairy Barn
The Dairy Barn has been a fixture on Highway 36 in Wathena, Kan., for years. It’s the local hot spot for a cold ice cream cone. For years, the Dairy Barn has been for sale, but it appears that owners have been found. Not only is the Dairy Barn a great place for ice cream, but it’s also a good place for pork!
Two nice options are a huge pork tenderloin and a sandwich called the triple pig. As the name implies, the triple pig sandwich includes one half of tenderloin, one third a pound of pulled pork, and Applewood smoked bacon.
This sandwich is so big, that it took me little while to figure out how to tackle it! If you eat the whole thing, you won’t leave the Dairy Barn hungry. In fact, you might not even have room for some delicious ice cream. I suggest you take a friend or two to split the triple pig with. Enjoy the triple pig and top off your meal with some cold dairy treats.
I look forward to trying the giant tenderloin (and an ice cream cone) during my next visit through Northeast Kansas!
Until next time,
