The ribs are the best and the sauce is outstanding. The ribs are smoked and cooked to perfection and the right amount of sauce is added.

One of the (if not the) best BBQ's in the area. I like it better than Dickies, although the onion strings at Dickies are to die for!

BBQ sauce was horrible. I was the only person in the restaurant; that should have told me enough. If you want excellent bbq then you must go to Dickies. They're traditional Texas style bbq at a great price.

I love this place. My favorite thing to get is the French dip. They stack the sandwich with the best flavored steak, and serve it with a large, piping hot cup of au jus. The au jus is great! I could practically drink it as is hahaha I am not a huge fan of BBQ sauce so I always get... More

The ribs were really very good, but the sauce wasn't the greatest. We had to add our own which was a little on the sweet side but the ribs were awesome and so was the coleslaw!

Great, non pretentious place to have lunch. Used to be able to get extra rib bones for my dogs as well but I am not sure whether they still do this.

Barney's is open for breakfast on Fri, Sat and Sun. We have been going there often for breakfast. They have the best bacon and ham in the area. Since going on the Paleo diet we have given up potatoes and bread, so we order bacon, ham, eggs and fruit, or their omelets. The service is great, the food cooked properly.... More
