I have been going to Barrows for 10 years and I think the food and service are outstanding. My favorite sandwich is the Italian Cibata. Owners Oliver and Norbert are the best.

Very casual atmosphere with good food and interesting sandwich combinations. The staff is polite but more importantly the food is well worth another visit.

Bring a friend and experience exceptional customer service along with a scrumptious, freshly prepared Boar's Head sandwich. You may eat at the counter, like my friend and I did today or take a table or even carry out. This place is a must if you're in the mood for simple quality.

A nice LITTLE cafe. The food tasted good. I had the Rueben sandwich which was very good. Had to wait till half of my sandwich was eaten before I got my spicy mustard. Prices are reasonable for the food served. Disappointed that soup was all gone even at 1:00. Owners are nice and helpful. Seating is Awful.

Small place so hard to find seating and the food is over priced for what you get. I will not go back here.

I tried Barrow's based on someone's suggestions that it was better than Wright's or Zudars. Don't believe it. I asked one of the owners what he recommended as a specialty of the house in regards to a salad. Perhaps he was having a REALLLLLLLY bad day. In any event it would have been better to wish for patience when a... More

The owners are sandwich geniuses. I could eat here every day for lunch... since my co-workers like variety I opt for once a week instead. The egg salad, cream of asparagus soup, and walnut brownies are out of this world. My personal favorite on the menu is the Monte Barrow sandwich. Turkey, genoa salami, ham, swiss cheese, dill pickles, spicy... More

I used to work nearby and Barrow's was a weekly stop ... great sandwiches and the owners, Oliver and Norbert, know how to treat a guest. Sandwiches are excellent, absolutely finest ingredients and each is made to your specifications. Now my job has changed and I work further away so the visits have slowed but that only makes them more... More
