Barbaras is a family run place. Unlike others in the area you will not see a Sysco or any other delivery truck bring food to prepare. The owners shop each Monday for the meats and all other food stuffs. Everything is made there including the...More

Nice home style kitchen and dining. Authentic Hungarian in Ewing, Barbara's has been here for about 8 years. My first time and only one other person in the dining room on this snowy winter day. At our table of three, we had stuffed cabbage, chicken...More
