Barrel-Shaped Food Stand

The orange, black-striped barrel building has been in Boron for years -- we remember seeing it in 1994 when we drove a few blocks over to meet the late King of Toilet Seat Arts. He's gone, but the Barrel remains, with its walk-up ordering window. Volunteers at the museum on the other end of Main St. said the food served at the Barrel was delicious.

Tiny Boron offers two museums and assorted other interesting sights.
