This looks like a great place to eat, but the food is awful!!! Absolutely no taste. We ordered the chili cheese fries which consisted of frozen fries, with bland chili on top and the cheese was two slices of american cheese just laid on the top. Really?? The burger was burnt, no flavor, like eating cardboard. The bun was nice,... More

So many different burgers and types of protein to select from that it's almost overwhelming. Hubby and I split a burger as neither of us were very hungry. They did the split in the kitchen and brought out a huge basket of curly fries that went along with the one burger meal. Very tasty and hot. Try their milkshakes as... More

What else would you expect? Fine dining? C'mon...it's a burger. That's what I thought heading in. My daughter and her boyfriend brought us here during our last visit to Berkeley. I was hungry from walking all over Solano Blvd and around Berkeley, so this was a great choice. Party of 5, seated at once. Place was busy. Waiter appeared immediately... More

I ate here three times with a party of about 5-6 people on Sunday, and after the third experience we pledged to never frequent this location again. On all occasions, we saw our server all of two times, once to take our order and once to take our bill. On all times, it took ten minutes to have our order... More

They have great burgers, great sweet potato fries and very good service. Portions are generous and they aim to please. It is a great place to get a good burger and sides. Their salads and dressings are good too.

For basic burgers, sweet potato fries and the like, this is fantastic! Lots of families come with their kids, but there is enough space for everyone. The only disadvantage - restrooms aren't large enough to handle the crowds at times.

Burger is lean and thick but you add the salt yourself. Curly fries are out of this world. No complaints about the service.

Barney's is reasonably priced. Their burgers are made with organic beef from Neiman Ranch. They have great salads and fries--I especially like their sweet potato fries. I don't think I've ever had anything here that I didn't like.
