Great service. Staff was super friendly. Portions are huge! Should've shared! I got the bison scramble, it was good. Big winner was hubby 's green eggs. It was egg whites, spinach, artichoke and Monterey Jack. Wow! The potatoes are also terrific!

We just happened by this restaurant during a walking trip downtown. What a great find! Although service was amight slow, the food was really good. We had the avacado burger with fries and the chicken cesar salad. Both very good! We will surely be back.

Tex-Mex fusion food that is exceptionally good, freshly prepared, and served up by polite and attentive waitstaff. vNot likely that you will get better potato chips anywhere at any price.

The wife and I were spending the weekend downtown, and Barnaby's was basically next door to our hotel, so we popped in for breakfast. OMG it was delicious! The only reason I gave 4 stars is our server seemed rushed and disconnected, despite there being...More
