Unchanged after over 40 years

After 40 years Barnaby's pizza is still delicious. It still offers good thin crust pizza with a wide variety of toppings. I quite enjoyed my pizza. Prices are reasonable.

Don't expect waiters and fancy silverware. This is a family oriented pizza place. Pay place your order, they will call your number. Also features beef, burgers, chicken sandwiches, stick with the pizza and a picture of beer.

this is a great place for bar pizza - don't come here with high expectations for anything other than the great pizza and beer on tap ( HINT -THEY HAVE SPATEN ! ). the crowd is an assortment of families, youth baseball teams and garden variety day drinkers. the kind of place that's hung on since the 70s in spite...

I wanted to like this vintage pizza joint, but I was not impressed. When you walk in the door, you are right in the dining area and there is no receptionist desk. So if you are new to the place, you just stand there trying to figure it out. There are NO servers, so you can't even catch someone going... More

I called to see if they had an area for 15 people. He said NO. I asked if he could make some tables to accommodate us. He said NO. He said it was going to be too crazy tonight so he is not going to accommodate any one. First come first served. Wow! In all my years of service I... More

I've tried most of the well known and top rated pizza restaurants in the Chicago area but none are as good as the Barnaby's in Northbrook. I am lucky to live close by and have been a loyal customer for the 30+ years since I moved to the area. Coming from Boston does give me a bias towards thin crust... More

I've eaten at Barnaby's must of my life and it's definitely one of those pizzas where it's hard to stop. Thin and crispy, with the classic, crimped crust dusted with corn meal. Other than being a touch on the dark side, the restaurant is a casual and easy spot to enjoy pizza, but don't expect any discounts or coupons, I've... More

Never disappoints, great old school pizza joint. Once you step inside Barnaby's you can't tell if it is 1975 or 2015. We need places like this. Great family restaurant.

I have been going to this restaurant with my family since I was a little kid (almost 25 years). Not only is the pizza great but the spaghetti sauce is out of this world!!! It's a Friday night staple in my family!

Barnaby's is a must stop in the North Chicagoland area. The pizza is paper thin with crispy crust. The sauce is oh so yummy and their sandwiches as well as appetizers like potato skins and mozzarella sticks are the best I have ever had! We love the old feel to the joint as well as the nice service. We love,... More
