Frozen Patty. Yum. If you get hungry when you hear ice shards hitting the pan then this is the place for you. Don't forget them frozen fries either.

It doesn't get more home town than the Burger Barn! This is exactly the kind of restaurant it appears to be - owned and operated by locals who support the community. Grilled cheese sandwich is a favorite.

Ordered only a cone to go. Was treated like I was spending a million bucks. Super friendly service, great smile and a good soft-serve cone. I'll be back!

My kids ask to go here every time we drive by. "Can we get an ice cream?" The soft serve ice cream is perfect and they offer "flavor burst" which comes in a variety of choices. The kids love it. The French fries are great and I usually get the BLT or the Turkey sandwich. Both are served on a... More

The sign behind the counter says, "We do not serve fast food. We serve good food as fast as we can." My wife and I agree. Also, the cleanest bathroom I have EVER used in a burger joint. Dunsmuir is a quiet little town that is a nice break from the endless drive on Hwy 5.

We have been here several times over the years. We always love what we get. The BLT was served on Fresh Baked Bread - yum! The hamburgers are juicy and delicious. But the serve is fantastic - so sweet and kind. Yum! Just come! You won't be disappointed!

Not disappointed. See my picture and cation for my BLT. Only $7.25. I went to the Dunsmuir Gardens to eat. Lovely place to eat a good lunch.

Stopped at this little place for a burger and we weren't disappointed. We had the blue cheese with bacon burger and it was delicious. The fries were good too. If you're traveling up I 5, and need a break, stop at this little gem. It's in the town of Dunsmuer. The place was clean too. A prerequisite for any restaurant.... More

This was a very clean and friendly burger joint. Not a fast food place. My burger patty was not a skinny frozen one thrown on the grill although it wasn't one of those extremely thick gourmet one either. They are served with thousand island. Next time I will ask for mustard and ketchup. I will also ask for extra lettuce,... More

After a few hours of snow play in Mt Shasta, we stopped at the Burger Barn for some good food. We had a craving for burgers, fries and a milk shake. Luckily, Dunsmuir does not have any chain food places (that I know of, at least) so we knew we would be able to find some good burgers at a... More
