“Great Rootbeer and Tenderloins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Barker's B&K is a great traditional drive-in. The root beer is some of the best, especially in the frosted mugs! My favorites are the tenderloin sandwiches and coney dogs. Also love the fried mushrooms!

“Nice drive-in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

This place has the best coney dogs around! You can also order an iced mug of root beer. I don't know anywhere that you can get that now a days. I recently introduced this place to my kids and they ask for it all the time!

“Classic B&K Rootbeer stand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Love the food! Have mini-elephant ears which are delicious and cheap. One of the best fried tenderloins around! And the root beer, especially in the iced mug, is GREAT! You can even get a free refill in a to-go cup for later!
