Oakland >Food & Dining > Barney's Gourmet Hamburger
Skip. Barney's is not a place I would suggest or return to. The service is average, the atmosphere is typical of a restaurant but the food is below average. If you want a good burger this is not the place, maybe it is not supposed to be. All I can say is if you want a good burger this is not it.
I don't get it!. I know people love this place, but I've never understood the hype. Very average burgers, service always seemed rushed, and the tables (and patrons) are practically placed on top of each other. Decent spicy curly fries and a nice back patio, but that's about it.
Not worth the price!. I used to eat there frequently because it was a quick meal and very convenient but they recently changed the menu and prices(!), and they have subsequently lost a customer. They removed my favorite items from their menu and apparently removed a geat deal else, cutting into their formerly well know great selection. The tables are crowded into the eating area too close together, making the situation very uncomfortable. The place has lost its utility for me and from now on I'll be getting my burgers from Park Avenue Grill down the street.
Enormous beef, chicken and veggie burgers with inventive twists make this casual mini-chain a California favorite..
Burgers -- of both the all-beef and meatless variety -- are the name of the game at this highly-trafficked neighborhood eatery. Plain interiors with walls proudly decked in local dining awards take a backseat to huge flame-broiled patties. Destination-themed sandwiches, like the Milano with roasted eggplant, zucchini and tomato pesto sauce and the Baja chicken with avocado, bacon and salsa, are served a la carte. Side orders include deep-fried veggies and steak-cut fries.
