I've been eating here for years. Burgers are the thing here but they do offer salads and other items. I like that they have multiple patties- beef, turkey, chicken, salmon and veggie. You get the fries separately. Also, delicious and large milkshakes- though it's hard to compete with Fenton's up the road. But if you want a burger, Barney's is... More

Juicy, rare beef, humongous, excellent bun, crisp greens, onion & tomato -- a great burger. Busy Saturday night, had to wait a bit, but effortless. Excellent service. The cucumbers on the salad were particularly crunchy and just right. A generous glass of pino grigio.... all was great.

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
