I was in the area for business and needed a quick dinner in that area, I was a little dubious looking at the exterior but the parking lot was quite full with nice cars... so I decided to try it. What a gem!!! This is a complete throwback to another time. You order at counter and bring your food to... More

This is a casual eatery - you find a seat then get in line for food then again for drinks. It appeared quite chaotic but was very busy and considering a lot of us arrived at once, they coped very well and were efficient. The pasta seemed a bit 'plastic' but the pizza was very good. The booths were very... More

I thought that the quality of the food would match their prices: low. But that wasn't the case. I split a veggie pizza with LF, my Lady Friend. I was pleasantly surprised to see the pie cut into many small squares, like they do in Italy. I prefer this to traditional slices since you can better measure out your portions.... More

Visited with a group of 9. Seating was a challenge on a Saturday night but we had a fun casual dinner. Good pizza and sandwiches.

Nice place to try varieties of pizza. Parking might be an issue if visit in rush hours. Best for trying pizza and beer. Cheers!

Over the years we've tried a few other selections here, but we always go back to their pizza and beer. It is their staple and what they do best. If your not having pizza, don't go.

We were late for a Chicago Wolves hockey game and had planned to stop at Barnaby's for pizza but were afraid we wouldn't have time, so we phoned ahead to check. The person who took the order was very patient and cheerful, in spite of them being very busy. The pizza was ready within minutes of our arrival and was... More

I have been eating here for over 40 years. In all that time the flavor or quality or their food hasn't wavered. Great thin crust pizza. Great selection of burgers to salads. We always get an appetiser sampler basket to munch on while waiting for our pizza. Great for kids as they can watch their pizza being made at the... More

I was traveling with a peer and he suggested we get some thin crust pizza for lunch. He grew up in the area and was familiar with the restaurant. When pulling into the parking lot, I realized this was a locally known restaurant and when we walked in it was full of people eating lunch. You order at the counter... More
