I'm not sure how "big" they were but remember them locally well (this goes WAY back.....). Anyone? I even remember their jingle!

There was one in Cortland NY near where I grew up but it closed probably when I was in elementary school (1970's?). Now near where I work on the Carlisle Pike I keep noticing a building that looks very much the same.

The one in Cortland became a Jreck Subs, a chain extending down from far northern NY at the time. The Jewish college kids looked askance due to its pronunciation being very close to an undesirable word in Yiddish. It's now closed.

When I was going to Penn State, I used to stop at a Red Barn on 22/322 just north of Harrisburg along the Susquehanna. It was kind of a last chance stop before getting on the road to State College which was a bit of a drive.

I remember one in Meadville, PA that I used to stop at in the late 1960's. I remember the fried chicken as being delicious!

Wow, Google brought up more relevant hits than the last time I tried to search on this topic years ago: The Red Barn Restaurant ** When the Hungries hit, hit the Red Barn!
