Food was Ok, but the place is dingy and the service slow.

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

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.

“Breakfast at Barney's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

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. For an alternative to the packed places on the weekends in P-Hill, Concord and Walnut Creek, try Barney's.
I have been eating at Barney's off and on since 1963. I love their ribs and sauce. The menu and decor hasn't changed, and their food is consistently good.

“Don't know what people are thinking!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2009

This is not bbq. When you think of bbq, you think of dry rub or a red type of sauce. The sauce here was a brown gravy, just horrible. Wife, kids, and I couldn't believe it. Went once, never returned.
