If you are looking for a great burger or sandwich, this is the place to go. Nothing fancy, but a varied menu with indoor and outdoor seating. Good service. Whenever my relatives come into town, lunch at the Burger Barn is a must.

We stumbled onto this place by accident looking for a gas station. The attendant said this was the best place in town. Burger was delicious and cooked to order. French fries were crisp and fresh. If you elect to sit on the patio be prepared to fend off flies. If you are looking for a good burger, this is a... More

Great "Locals" place, open for breakfast and lunch. Not fancy but clean and the food is always very good. I am in and out of the area often and always have at least one breakfast and one lunch per trip.

Very low key atmosphere but a big enough restaurant to feel comfortable amongst the locals and visitors alike.

....I expected a really great burger. Possibly caught them on an off day as it was really busy so the burger was overcooked. Not sure if they would use that as an excuse, but, it was expensive for an overdone burger.

Order the sweet potato fries! The burgers are great and so is the Santa Maria chili. Nothing to dislike. Friendly, happy place.

My girl friend and I went here for breakfast, we were seated quickly and served in a timely manner. She ordered biscuits and gravy, the eggs were to be cooked over medium but were over easy and runny whites. I had a omelet with hash browns that were slightly browned and mushy in the middle. The biscuits weren't any thing... More

We really enjoyed our lunch on the lovely pation at The Burger Barn! Delicious pulled pork sandwich and potato salad for me, and great tri-tip and fries for my husband. We'd definitely stop here again.

Quick good food but I'm not a fan of lunch. Breakfast is very hearty. Old fashioned decor makes it feel like your grandma's house.
