“Wiggly!!!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Wiggly is the owner's dog. He is the cutest French Bull Doggy mix? So, this review isn't about the dog but if you're a doggy lover like we are then it's worth the trip! The burgers are excellent!!! Homemade buns and all the fixings. Homemade Vanilla ice cream which they use in their milkshakes. Yummmmm!!!

The wait for the food is a bit longer than usual but I think it's because everything is made to order.

Love the small town feel of Bishop and Burger Barn!!!

“Best Burgers and Chili for a hundred miles or more! Don't Miss This Gem.”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

A burger joint is just that a burger joint. This place is mainly take out. Weather permitting you can eat outside. If you are lucky, and we were, there is one table inside. If you want a great burger, you have to come here. It's really a unique operation. Kind of hard to find off of Highway 168. For our final meal in Bishop, we saved the BEST for last. We ordered the Chili and waited. In about 10 minutes we were presented with a bowl of chili with steak and topped with sour cream and avocado. Each of us tasted and WOW, we were all smiling talking about how good it was. A few more minutes passed and we got our burgers. After our first bite we all thought we had died and went to heaven! We also had their fries, WAY better than McDonalds. They were cooked perfectly. I have to say I really wanted to try one of their Milkshakes made with home made ice cream, but alas we were stuffed! Maybe next time. HIGHLY Recommended.

“Great value, simple and super tasty, well worth the detour”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Slightly out of the way from the town center, but we kept making the short drive once we discovered the place. It's slightly weird but very friendly and the burgers are among the best I've ever tasted. My girlfriend couldn't stop raving about the milkshakes either.

Definitely worth a visit, much better than the slightly overrated Schatz in our opinion.

Just be careful, they close early for dinner (7pm, if memory serves).

“Friendly staff..good food”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We got turned around and had one heck of a time finding this place but it was worth the trouble. I got a very tasty turkey burger and fresh french fries and onion rings. This place is really unique and funky and I'm sure they have a real cult following. I'll be back the next time I'm in town.

“Excellent Burgers!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Little place off the main tourist area (395) in Bishop. But their burgers and fries are excellent. Takeout service is very fast.
