Cheap prices for solid diner fare. We ate there for breakfast and were not disappointed. Service was good, as was the coffee and biscuits.

The food is a true southern delight of home cooked meals prepared daily in house. All the veggies and daily specials are the best ever, especially the soups and desserts. Since I'm from the south I could eat there daily. You have "nipped it in...More

I had Barney burger, it's a burger, hubby had the special Chicken casserole with two sides. Peas and carrots, and grits. Corn bread was dry but casserole was great. Home made dessert, wow by far the best!

An OK place for lunch. We had the home-made vegetable beef soup which was very good. The grilled cheese sandwich that came with it was just average. An "interesting" spot was the restroom with its very low ceiling. I'm 5'8" and almost hit my head.

If you want a place to grab lunch this is the place. Great hamburgers and the plate lunch specials are great. Who doesn't like meatloaf. Breakfast is also a good deal. I just like the relaxed feel they people and place gives you.

Daily specials worth a try. North Carolina beef stew appears to be more like beef soup; was tasty anyway. Check out the desserts too.

The pictures on the wall of Barney were interesting and funny. The restaurant was exceptionally clean. The breakfast was at best disappointedly average.

Quick service. Old downhome style resturant. Nothing fancy. Will fill you up. I had the meatloaf and my husband had chicken noodel soup. Both good.
