Other fans of the restaurant started speculating what they thought the big announcement could be. Jenna Olson Steinhoff commented, "Please have a food truck, please have a food truck".
The Blue Barn serves up a variety of fair food. They're well-known for their bacon stuffed tots, french toast bites with whipped cream and pop rocks, blue cheese corn fritz, Iron range pirogies and chicken in a waffle. They were planning to add some new things to the menu this year, like breakfast potato skins and Nashville hot chicken on a stick.
