I've been sitting here reading these reviews, enjoying most of them except for the ones where people are bashing the establishm
ent itself for their own actions, and/or for the staff following standard... rules. No, I have not been to the new Bo's Barn, but I knew the original owner, Bo himself, as well as the original Bo's Barn in Salado. I used to spend many of weekends there, helping him get ready to open with my Uncle Dewayne. Putting salt on the original concrete dance floor... Bo was and always will be my Grandpa, my Peepaw. He wanted things done a particular way and it sounds to me like things are getting done that way! As far as the door girl Candice, ironically I know her pretty well too. She is not racist or biased, she is a very hard worker that does as she should, she follows the guidelines . Just as you all have to get up Monday morning and go to work and follow certain rules and guidelines , so do the staff at Bo's Barn. Her job is to make sure everyone is safe. So if you have an issue with the staff or establishm ent, my suggestion would be to call the manager and get it taken care of instead of bashing Bo's name on social media, as well as staff members. Thank you. And to the owners of Bo's Barn, keep up the great work. And for the lady at the door, keep doing what you do! God Bless!

Bo's is a good place to meet your friends and enjoy dancing to a good live band in a safe friendly place. Gets pretty crowded after 10 or so. Band starts at 9 but you can always dance to recorded mu...sic played on the house pa system. I go every Friday night because there seems to be more single ladies on that night. It is 42 miles from my home in Waco but I don't mind the drive. Some come from as far as Austin.
We came over last night after having some beers at a small bar because we wanted appetizers
and dancing and the first place was lacking in those areas. As we were coming in my friends were laughing at... how excited I was to get snacks and based on their laughter the woman at the door decided that we were too intoxicate d to enter. There were two very nice gentlemen who came over after she told us we had to leave and were very apologetic and said that TABC had been bad recently. They were very nice but they had to back up the woman after she made such a stand about us having to leave. I think it would have been better handled if she had made an effort to have a quick conversati on with us. She would have quickly seen that we were not stumbling or slurring our words. Laughing and teasing with friends over snacks should not be a determinin g factor on judging the state of intoxicati on of patrons. I wish she had given us a friendly and welcoming smile and made an attempt to visit for a moment rather than immediatel y kicking us out. We were a group in our 40’s and 50’s celebratin g a special occasion, not a crowd of rowdy, puking teens. People easily lose sight of the fact that they are in the service industry sadly. We won’t take a chance on that embarrassm ent again.
We love Bo’s, I have been going there since it was in Salado! Great crowd and the owner is amazing! Just love her! She’s so attentive and the staff are fun and work hard to keep every patron happy! We... love the bands that come in and it’s just an all round good country bar/

Only dance hall in Temple Belton area. Only complaint is younger crowd takes Over around 11p.air stifling. We pay to get in and reserve table. People coming in after 11 stand in front and block tables... vision. Granger is worse than Bos. I agree this area needs another good sized dance hall.
My wife and I had a great time at Bo's Barn. It's a great place to dance and meet new people. Love there choice of music all county very little r&b. We will be back there every chance we get..
The team at Bo's Barn Dancehall is amazing! They are welcoming and make you feel like family. Last night another patron made me feel not so welcome and everyone on the team took time to make sure I wa...s ok! The heartfelt reactions from everyone speaks volumes of their ownership and I am sincerely gratefull for all of them. If you are looking for a fun and safe place to enjoy an ice cold beer and go out dancing, Bo's Barn Dancehall is most definately
the spot for you!
We go quiet often, live that we can reserve a table, we love ❤️ Susan, it just too cold in there with alll those fans, so we had to leave early, other than that's it a great place to dance
So fun!!! Great music, good food, & cold beer!!!!!

My husband and I actually had a GREAT time last night. We have missed going to a REAL country bar... the ones we have been to lately are either run down or full of young punks. We really loved the ...food and the bartenders
were nice and cheerful. We also loved the music they played and the band was pretty awesome too. We will be back soon! ♥
Good music dancing and friendly people it's a nice little dance hall ,they have good bands
I always get to dance when I go ,have a great time, except last night the people that had a table next to ours never sat down ,they are were standing in front of their table and ours, blocked us from ...seeing the dance floor and potential dance partners, finally we got to move to another table, we did say something to the waitress

I am a truck driver and every time I am in town my family takes me to Bo's. We always have a wildly fun experience
with live bands, great dance floor, excellent staff and of course the parking is plen...tiful. Just cannot park your rig there. Five stars all day every day. Bo's has created many wonderful memories for me and my family. Thank you.
Best place in town! great customer service, grey music.
From the time I was a kid til last night my dream (because of Urban Cowboy) was to go to a true Honkey Tonk. Me being from the east coast and city I didn't think it would ever happen.. I moved to Texa...s and own 2 bars in Austin Wagners Backyard & Rusty Rudder Lake Travis. So I ventured to Bo's last night and let me tell you I had the BEST TIME ever! All the old school songs from my childhood was coming through the speakers. The door girl was so nice and welcoming then I get to the bar and the bartender was just as welcoming .. I sat there and sang the whole time.. Music from Urban Cowboy made it even better for me.. Thanks Bo's for making a bucket list come true. I will be back for sure and bringing some friends. Please keep staying true to what you do! The customers and staff is everything
I was hoping.. Cookie (Customer) very nice guy... Csnt wait to see you guys again!!!
