A few years ago I stopped in to try the breakfast while traveling on my job; it was great and I've been "hooked" ever since! My job allows me to travel through Mt. Airy which is a couple counties over every few months, and when I do, I eat at Barney's. The staff is the best and Eric the owner treats you like he's known you for years. The locals remember you and are always willin' to "jaw" with you for a while. Great food, Great fellowship, Great price (try Eric's mama's cakes-YUM!). When you're done enjoy the town!
