I have been going to Barnaby's since I was a kid. When back in the area I have to have a pizza. Now my kids love it. Don't expect anything fancy, just good pizza. Fish and Chips, fries and chicken fingers all have been good too.

This Barnabys location still adheres to its history. Best thin crust pizza! I've been going there since I was a kid (in fact had my 8th birthday there, college graduation party and my sons christening). My big favorite in Des Plaines. Same decor even but who cares if they changed it people would complain.

Stopped into Barnaby's since I hadn't been there to one in over 30 years and I had fond memories of going there with my family when I was younger. Nothing had changed...still dark...70's vibe...menu boards. Tried a BBQ beef sandwich since that was always my favorite. Big mistake...dry...slice beef (almost like deli meat)...store bought bun....dollop of overly sweet (Open Pit?)... More

We were surprised to see Barnaby's since the one we used to visit in Milwaukee closed over 2 decades ago. When we walked in, it brought back memories because the decor was same, old wooden picnic style seating, dark wood, informal atmosphere. You place your order at the counter and wait for your number to be called, there are no... More

Friendly, family place with great pizza. Kids can move about without causing problems and they have tv to watch sports. Sandwiches are good too, especially the fries but the pizza is the best.

During a business trip, I'd mentioned that over the years of traveling to Rosemont/Des Plaines, I couldn't believe that I'd fallen into a rut. I'd had Nancy's and Giordano's pizza, beef at Al's and Portillo's. Now don;t get me wrong, I love the food. I was just looking for something different. I was introduced to Barnaby's. Not only was the... More
