It is hard to be a destination burger joint, but Barney's comes sorta close. There is nothing fancy, but is pleasant and not plastic at all. The people are wonderful and know what is going on. the Menu is burgers, salads, hot dogs, fries and a few other sandwiches. Plus something to drink. When the say Gourmet Hamburgers, they mean that they have a lot of things that you can put on the burger that makes it what you want. If you see a Barney's nearby and you could enjoy a great burger, stop in!!

Juicy burgers any way you want them, great onion rings. Indulge on the patio with a beer or glass of wine. You can diet tomorrow!

Location with outside seating is great.
Service was a little unprofessional and slow. We were seated and had to wait a while before staff came near our table. A mother and daughter had been seated before us, yet another table that came later and was seated near the doorway was waited on and received food before our tables. Mother and daughter left!
The Cobb Salad my wife had was plentiful and pleasing to the eye when presented.
My hamburger on the other hand was a disappointment. I guess it all comes down to what one is used to. The hamburger bun was dry, and with what seemed like a glacé on top, left the bun on the side of the plate after a few bites. Meat pattie was dry, hard and flavourless. Like eating compressed cardboard! Seems the patties are pre cooked, then stored for later use. Price for burger is to high for quality of product.
Along with the salad, I'm sure there are other items on the menu that make Barney's a great place to eat. But Gourmet in front of Hamburger is pushing the limits of my taste buds!

Came here on a whim and enjoyed the food. Plenty of different burgers to choose from with a WIDE variety of toppings. Their curly fries were fantastic and the restaurant has an overall great ambiance.
