Always loved Barney's burgers and shakes! It's now brighter and nicer. However our service was terrible.

I love Barney's so I was very glad to be back in the bay area after 3 years and make another visit there. I have tried at least 10 of their burgers and they are all great. To change things up a bit, this time, the 2 of us ordered a burger and a salad and split both. Although I... More

Good place for burger. They were fast nice and courteous. Cute little area of town, Oaklandish, so make sure you have time to walk around to the shoppes.

Always a toss up for lunch choosing between Barney's for a great hamburger or Fentons for their delicious dungeness crab sandwich. Just go with your mood at the time, neither will disappoint.

Had a great old fashioned burger and fires. The burger came with all the usual trimmings and I like to get the steak fries. All done to perfection. The back yard patio is not to be missed. A quiet setting away from all of the noise of Piedmont Ave. The burgers are juicy and are made for an appetite. Come... More

The burger was excellent, the service was awful. I am not sure if they were just short staffed that day or what, but I had to remind them to come take my order.

Nice neighborhood place, the burgers were great and not too pricey at $11-13. Fries were good and service was nice. Good beers but limited list.

We four walked in to this mid block eatery at 6:30 PM to find a full house. A single four top table in the back, just inside the door to the closed rear patio was open to us. It was perfect as we are two older couples wanting to catch up and review past and future events. The seating was... More

Barney's is a place you can count on if you want a great burger. High quality beef, excellent seasoned, curly fries, killer milkshakes!!. There are 5 in our family and we all order the exact same burger every time we go in: The Pesto Burger. All the burgers are great, but my family sticks with old reliable!! Fenton's Ice Creamery...

French fries (thick, thin, curly, or truffle) are great, as are their onion rings. Their shakes are really thick, but small for the price. However, their veggie burger is often bland and flavorless. The last time I ordered one, it was kind of "wet"...But go for the fried delights - you won't be disappointed!
