On the way for Visiting "twin peaks" san francisco. Here is Barney's Gourmet Hamburgers. What a great day. The Voodoo burger was so good. All my family was happy. I use to finish the food of my family in other retaurants but it was near impossible here since the burger was so big! The waiter and the waitress were excellent!!!... More

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

We arrived just before a powercut, but fortunately it came back on quickly. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Food arrived promptly and looked an tasted good. I ordered the Western burger which was amazing, although I could only eat half of it.

I am not much of a red meat fan, but my American heritage shrines through when it comes to Barney's Burgers.These are the best hamburgers anywhere. There are whole wheat bun options and many different toppings. They are juicy and just plain delicious. There is a Barneys on north side and one on College Avenue (north Oakland, south Berkeley). All... More

While Barney's is known as the place for burgers,I found the burgers to be too big (if there is such a thing) and expensive. Everything is a la carte (such as fries) so the food and drinks can add up quickly. Would only go back if a burger obsessed friend was visiting.
