This is the place we always bring guests from other countries so they can have a "real" American hamburger, thick and juicy, since so many of them think the fast-food franchises that have popped up all over the world are the real thing--not! Also--not just excellent quality beef burgers with many varieties of optional additions, but also turkey and veggie... More

The best burger I've had in a long time. And the skinny fries were wonderful as well. Super nice server.

Lots of kids and families there, so its a bit loud and busy at times. Food is OK. Service is friendly. We mostly ordered Chicken Salads to go. Good value for money.

The cili bowl is good and value for money. Not so sure about other stuff. The salad was just ok and the burgers perhaps not gourmet, but good. The kid in the group liked the mac and cheese!

Really oily fried veggies and curly fries. Taste like old oil. Average burger, bad garden burger. Bad execution on the sautees and toppings

I truly love Barney's. I go every time I return to visit my folks. I get a mix of two different burgers, and it has never been a problem for me to do. I want these parts of this burger, and those parts of that burger. YUM! And the sweet potato fries are amazing!!!! My mom always gets the onion... More

Waited a long time to have our order taken, my friend received the wrong food, and we both felt kind of sick afterwards. Wouldn't go back.

I used to live in the Berkeley area and would make a regular visit to Barney's in Piedmont every month at least. When I come back to visit, I now frequent the Barney's on Solano Avenue. I was there last night and already crave the Piedmont Burger I so enjoyed for dinner. Great quality meat, caramelized onions, thousand island dressing.... More

Variety of burgers is great. Good fries, consistent food and good service. Don't go out of your way, but if you are close and hungry, definitely go to Barneys. Somewhat of a local institution with several locations
