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.

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.

I eat at Barney's 3 or 4 times a week. They have delicious homemade breakfast, and a great variety of lunch and dinner items; almost anything you could want. Sandwiches, burgers, plates, fries, salads, and delicious homemade cakes and pies. Plus hand-dipped ice cream and...More
