The Old Barn Restaurant in Goshen has been named the winner of the Alabama’s Best Steak contest.

The Alabama’s Best Steak contest began July 1 with a nomination round compiling more than 12,000 nominations representing 140 Alabama restaurants. The Top 16 vote-getters of the 140 were chosen to move forward into a bracket challenge that narrowed the field from the “Sizzling 16” the top “Fiery 4.” The four finalists were OH! Bryan’s Family Steakhouse, Tuscumbia; Bull Pen Steakhouse, Oakman; Elmer’s Restaurant, Notasulga and The Old Barn Restaurant, Goshen.

The final four restaurants were then visited anonymously by a panel of industry judges during the month of September. Each finalist’s ribeye steak was judged on overall taste, tenderness and juiciness.

The Alabama’s Best Steak contest is sponsored by the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association and the Alabama Beef Checkoff.
