If you fantastic coney hot dogs this is the place! I grew up in Kokomo area and moved away. So when we come back to visit family and friends we have go to this hot dog place. It has not let us down in 30+ years. A must for good coney dogs

Love to get food here. Quick service, awesome food, and cheap prices. Note they are not open on Sundays. Hours during off season are less also. However, this is the best place for tenderloins in Kokomo.

Love the old-timey carhop appeal of Barker's. But more than that, I love the coney dogs. I was raised eating them and still think they are the best in town.

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!

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!

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!
