Although Raleigh's Angus Barn is well known for its sizable collection of Colt firearms, the award owner Van Eure was recently honored with came from a lesser-known NRA.

Eure received the National Restaurant Association's "Industry Legends Award" at their annual meeting in Chicago.

"In honor of her leadership, warmth, and hospitality. Her spirit of service and optimism epitomize the best of America's restaurant industry. Her kindness, compassion and courage have made a difference in hundreds of thousands of lives. Van lifts up all whom she touches, and we honor her long-lasting impact," said Dawn Sweeney, NRA President and CEO.

"I'm truly honored to be a recipient of this award, and humbled to be included with such incredibly talented previous recipients," says Van Eure.

Van's entire life has revolved around the Big Red Barn, which opened in 1960. At only 14, second generation owner Van Eure followed her father into the restaurant business.

"Even though my name is on the award, it would not be possible without the help of the entire Angus Barn team that works so hard each and every day, to make sure every guest has a memorable experience," said Eure.
