One hundred and thirty years ago, B.B. Barton built a simple frame building that he kept stocked with items he knew the farmers would need. The store quickly became a local meeting place for residents – a place where they could stock up on supplies and catch up on the latest gossip.
In 2019, the Bartonville Store fell into the hands of now owners, Michael Scott and Tim House, who vowed to restore the history of the building while also reimagining a new and exciting future for it.
The Bartonville Store pays homage to the store of the past with its Jeter’s Meat Shop, “a grass-fed, grain-finish Prime meat butcher shop,” which showcases Texas-raised Wagyu Beef from Rosewood Ranch, where Scott is the Corporate Executive Chef and sales manager. In addition to the Wagyu, customers can also find Angus, pork, chicken and game meat from other local ranches.
We cannot begin to rave enough about their incredible menu which incorporates upscale dishes with tastes of Texas. Just a few of the menu highlights include: Smoked Wagyu Short Rib; House Wagyu Burger; Stir-Fried Steak; and Chimichurri Grilled Shrimp Tacos.
Another feature of the Bartonville Store that cannot be overlooked is their incredible bar made with materials from the old store and where they serve signature cocktails like a Cucumber Fusion, Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita, and the Paloma.
Since opening, the Bartonville Store has become an integral part of the community – a local gathering place for residents where they know they can come enjoy some great food, drinks, and entertainment.
Other fun things you can find at the Bartonville Store are live music on the weekends, a Farmer’s Market, and brunch on Sundays from 9am-3pm.
