DESCRIPTION
A Bay Area staple since 1978, Barney's Gourmet Hamburgers attracts a wide range of diners thanks to a seemingly endless array of burgers and gourmet sandwiches. Fresh bread and meat are delivered daily, so meat eaters love the all-beef, chicken or turkey patties with several dozen available toppings. Then there are the 20 varieties of garden or tofu burgers for the vegetarian crowd. Burger creations include: the Sunshine Turkey with cheddar cheese, sprouts, scallions and avocado on whole-wheat; the Pesto Chicken with Monterey Jack and garlic-pesto sauce on a baguette; the Greek Burger with feta, cucumbers, lettuce, tomato and avocado served in pita bread; and the Popeye Tofu with feta and sautéed spinach. The fries are also well loved, available in a thick steak cut, skinny cut or spicy curly. Orders are big enough to share. Other deep-fryer items include onion rings, mushrooms and zucchini. Shakes and malts are made with Dreyer's ice cream and are served in pint glasses, with flavors such as blackberry, Turkish coffee, IBC Root Beer float, chocolate and Oreo. Rounding out the menu are soups, salads and other sandwiches such as eggplant club or falafel. The lush patio also scores points with patrons.
"Barney's smells great. That is because the hamburgers are cooked on a grate in an open kitchen adjoining the dining room, and the perfume of sizzling beef fat dripping onto coals is, for carnivores, a sure-fire appetizer."
— Michael Stern, Roadfood
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Kids' menu. Beer and wine available. Serving lunch and dinner daily.
