We drive up and down Interstate 77 all the time and have never stopped over in Mt. Airy. Today was the day. We chose Barney's because of you fellow TripAdvisors; we wanted locals and not tourists.
We sat at the counter. The waitress was sweet and explained a few things, including corn bread salad which we had never seen before. We got that, the meatloaf special, the BLT, pinto beans and macaroni salad. The food was good for this kind of spot and very prompt. Oh, and very cheap.
But the absolute best thing about this place is the people. 'Fore you knew it, the owner, Eric was chatting us up. Great guy and business owner. And then in walks the Sheriff and three of his deputies, all in their brown uniforms. It was great! And the accents of everyone. And the businessmen from Salisbury who stopped me and complimented my tshirt.
Promise. Never driving by Mt. Airy again without getting lunch, or SOMETHING, at Barney's.
