Most of our party went for burgers and fries and raved about the curly fries as well as the skinny fries. I tried lighter fare with a falafel salad. It was huge, fresh and the falafel had just the right amount of spice. My only...More

We have recently started going to Barney's to share one of their very large salads for lunch or an early dinner. Delicious and versatile! Ingredients can be traded or subsituted and it is a great meal on a hot day under the umbrellas with a...More

Their burgers are delicious and cooked perfectly. Both curly and truffle fries are delicious. Beware the milk shakes are big (one is good enough for 2 or 3 people). Nice dining area outside.

The service was great...helpful and efficient. Lunch time seems to be the time to visit Barney's. Although the burger was served well done when medium was requested, the taste was excellent. Got the Bacon Cheese Burger and onion rings... Wow, the rings were huge and...More

Great menu selection for burger. Love the curly fries. Like that they bring bottle water to your table. Staff not friendly

Great selection of burgers and other food, fish through salads, in an amiable, well-lit spot close to BART in Rockridge.

A Berkeley classic. Good burgers of many variants & killer fries. Wait staff are very nice and will make up a "lettuce & burger" plate if you're on a low-carb diet. Good felafel if a massive beef patty isn't your thing. Enormous shakes (too enormous,...More
