“Best Sandwich in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010

Best burgers and chicken sandwiches in town. Good fries, wings, and specials too. Great beer selection. If you're looking for a casual place to have a great sandwich and beer go here. The place is small so you will wait during peak times. The staff is the best. We love this place.

“Known to have the best burgers, but little known fact, Norm: GREAT veggie burgers too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2010

Awesome menu. Very fresh, quality tasting food, no matter what we order.

I love that the place is always clean. Huge beer selection, wonderful sandwiches, great selection of salads, and on and on.

Not only my favorite place to eat in Hudson but friends from Minnesota come to Hudson just for Barker's. Once there, you'll want to stay and shop. Hudson is a charming river town with lots of fun and unique shops.

Like vegetarian? Tip: Order the Southwest Garden Burger. Not officially on the menu but it is fantastic.

“The best in Hudson, WI by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2009

This is my favorite restaurant in Hudson by far. The service is top notch, your meal is always hot, fast and made correctly! Suzie, CJ and Justin make this place great to come to. The burgers are the best i've had and the nightly grill feature is always a must to check out as I end up getting the special alot of times. I've probably been to this restaurant 200 times and i can count on 1 hand the number of times it's been less then perfect.

“Great Wings and good beer selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2009

I live in Hudson and enjoy Barker's about once a month. It is a layback burger joint in a relaxed setting. There are two things that are excellent here. The wings: You pick the hotness, (1-10) and they give you a huge blue cheese for dipping, (the #5 is perfect). The burgers: Very good burgers and hand cut fries. The beer selection is also very good with several imports listed. I will say that I have always been disappointed when my wife or I have ordered something other then wings and burgers. I won't go on and on with the details but I would suggest sticking to their strenghts, (burgers and wings). This is one of two great restaurants in Hudson, WI. The other is a new place 1/2 block away on the main strip called, Agave Kitchen. You will not eat a bad meal at Agave Kitchen. These are the two restaurants that I take people who are visiting me from out of town.

“It okay at best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2009

Been here a few times and it's always okay. I've seen other in my party get bod food (ie. cold) but mine has always been fine. With so many other choices, why bother with okay food?
