As we were driving to Morro Bay, we stopped here for lunch on a Tuesday - not busy at all. We chose to sit on the "patio" which was once a street or parking lot next to the "Barn".
We ordered Bacon Cheese Burger ($8) and Caesar Salad ($8). It was delivered to our table quickly!

From the outside you hardly notice it as it is a bit tucked away. It's in the middle of the tiny township of Santa Ynez. But the food, breakfast and lunch are great. Not gourmet, but just great sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, salads, breakfasts etc.

It could use a bit of updating on the inside, but in away, the old-fashioned western atmosphere suits it. It's owned by the same people who own Paula's in Solvang. On any week-end or during the summer, people are lined up at Paula's to get in. It's that good. And the quality of food is just as good at the Burger Barn. The only thing they don't have are Danish Pancakes.

We have frequented Burger Barn several times in the past years. Yesterday we went back for another outstanding performance; HOWEVER, it was TERRIBLE. We went there for breakfast and our waitress watched TV and drank our coffee while our food was waiting to be delivered. My eggs, bacon, and toast were luke warm - I mentioned this to her - she takes it back and warms it up - now I ended up with rubbery eggs and soggy toast. In addition, I had the fresh fruit cup which has always been so good in the past - this time, it was not fresh. My husband's salsa for his burrito was not fresh - he mentioned this to the waitress and she admitted it was "yesterdays" - she did go and get fresh salsa. We have had this waitress in the past and she did a great job - something went wrong yesterday. We shared our dissatisfaction with the "manager" who said she would correct the problem.

Cal-mex specialties. Huevos Rancheros through eggs Benedict. Outdoor seating at umbrella tables on terrace if you want it. Lovely staff. Fine coffee.
Inexpensive and gooood.

If it is a beautiful day in SYV, this little restaurant is a good alternative if you are looking for a casual meal. I have found the burgers, of any kind, to be very good. Well seasoned and cooked just right. However, I think the Patty Melts are exceptional. The Rye bread, taste like Rye, is perfectly grilled as are the onions. The cheese is simple but adds something positive to the combination. YUM! French fries are a side order but a half order is probably enough for 3 people and at $2.50, reasonable. The salads look good but I never get past the burgers. The wine list is again simple, but of a good quality and very well priced.
