Been here a couple of times. This place is very mediocre; perhaps it's a bit below that. I wouldn't say "Poor", because it's hard to screw-up a hamburger unless grossly under- or overcooked, and I can't say I've experienced that here. Both Boss Burger up...More

Barney's has been around long before the recent upscale "Hamburger" trend started. They have been serving quality burgers at fair prices for years. This is a very clean location and they hire and train staff to provide first class service.

Barney's is a terrific little chain of burger restaurants. The Steak fries are crack to me. This is a frequent father-daughter place for me. Very kids friendly.
