Barnabys has been serving great thin crust pizza since around 1967. It has not changed the menu or decor or the self serve aspect. They specialize in Italian food: pizza,spaghetti and meatballs, chicken or veal dishes and a variety of sandwiches and salads. There is also full bar service. They also have take out. Once you order and pick-up your... More

We are a family of three sons in their thirties and we needed a venue we could all agree on in the Northern Suburbs of Chicago. This restaurant has been a favorite of ours for years and our family is composed of foodies who willingly argue about food all the time. We went early (because of four grandchildren under the...

I remember when there were many Barnaby's around. It was mostly a pub with peanuts, but if you're looking for some memories of their pizza and pitchers of beer, then you will enjoy this location. Ordering is confusing, but you'll get the hang of it in this busy family place. Come for the pizza.

Picked up two thin crust pizzas. One pepperoni. Other sausage and black olive. Both were great. Still hot and tasty at home. Wait was reasonable (40 minutes after calling.) crispy crust. Tasty sausage. Favorite if the grandchildren.

I bought a ton of '70s Archie comics last week -- and the next thing I knew, I had a taste for a Barnaby's pizza. We called ahead to save time, and the pizza was ready when promised. The restaurant (and parking lot) were filled. We saw many three-generation families enjoying their meals. a popular family destination.......

Super casual and super good. Great place for kids. Place your order at the counter and wait to be called. Good food, good prices, good restaurant. The pizza crust is absolutely wonderful.

We meet here about once a month for a friends get together. Always for wine, sometimes for sandwiches as well. Excellent prices for both. Offerings are good particularly for the price. Haven't tried the pizza recently.

You order your pizza at the cashier station, then find your seat. You can order your drinks at the bar. I had a 10 inch pepperoni and sausage pizza. They serve thin crust pizza. It was so good. They also serve their pizza par-baked, which I did, then froze them at my hotel to bring back to California. If you... More

I've been going to Barnaby's since I was a kids and it's one of the few things in life that hasn't changed and remains the best pizza that I have ever had! I can't believe how unique it is and that no other place has something even close. If you haven't tried this place for pizza, you're missing out on... More
