I have been to Barnaby's twice now, when traveling to South Bend for work. This place has really good Pizza - the appetizers are, as you would expect, all deep fried, so they are great - served HOT HOT. I would recommend the fungus (mushrooms), my favorite.

The pizza is served thin & crispy crust, sliced into small pieces. If you like Pizza this is a great place.

I skimmed some reviews on here, and have to help add some perspective. This is a pizzeria in a college town. Most of the people working here are college students. It is not gourmet food, and it is not in a high class neighborhood that is going to offer craft brews.

Go here expecting a few things:
1. Average service. You wait in line to order pizza and pay at one end of the building, they call your name when your pizza is up. Go to another line to order beer. Pay again.
2. A decent wait. They are not super fast, and if you are here on a home football weekend/move-in weekend/graduation weekend, prepare to wait. Thankfully they have salads which are ready immediately, and you can drink your first pitcher of beer while waiting for your pizza.
3. Steaming hot pizza. It comes right out of the oven, and by the time you wait a bit before eating, you are ready to take your first bite and inevitably you burn the roof of your mouth on the first bite. It's good pizza, but not super spicy. Super gooey and generous toppings.
4. "The Game" on TV. Again, it is a college town, and a big football/basketball state, so the game will be on TV or TVs and the guys will not be disappointed in the amount of TVs.

I do think the Mishawaka location is a little more family friendly, and has a little better service being away from the campus, but you have to come here being hungry and expecting a college pizza hangout. Don't forget to pull up their permanent coupon on their website too for a couple bucks off a pie.

This place delivers what it promises: cheap, abundant food with little to no frills and thrills in a public house atmosphere. The old decor is certainly part of the charm and the food is OK, nothing special, but the price is right and the speed is too.
