“Love Mayberry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Enjoyed lunch today at Barney's after touring the Andy Griffith Museum. Country fried steak with gravy real mashed potatoes and a wide variety of choices as sides. Served with cornbread or dinner rolls. I tried the North Carolina soda Cheerwine tastes like cherry coke. Service was fast and definite diner atmosphere.Too full to try desserts but had homemade cakes,pie and ice-cream .Prices very reasonable and enjoyed the Barney and Mayberry memorabilia. The daily specials were the country fried steak or meatloaf at $6.00 for the meal CHEAP and Good. Fun afternoon !

“Great Service and Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

We were in Mount Airy for the day only. About 1 1/2 hours from our home. It was about lunch time and were getting hungry. We had our little Yorkie with us and had to order the sandwiches to go. We ordered a Barney burger, grilled cheese and two grilled chicken and cheese. We walked a couple of blocks after getting the food. The Barney burger, grilled cheese was in the bag. Where were the grilled chicken and cheese, got only two more grilled cheese sandwiches. The lady at the cash register could not be more sorry about the mix up and wrote down for three grilled cheese sandwiches. They took back two of the grilled cheese and made two grilled chicken and cheese sandwiches and did not charge more for these sandwiches. The food tastes great price is good and the service is great. We will be back when in Mount Airy.

“Barney's burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

good sandwiches and burgers reasonably priced. We sat at the counter and got to see the homemade cakes under glass get sliced up for the customers. They have good old fashioned milk shakes. Service was fast and friendly. No line while we were there so if you can"t get in to Snappys go down the street and get a taste at Barneys. You'll definitely enjoy your meal

“Great prices and friendly service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

My wife and I ate here on Sunday. We were surprised how drastically different Main Street looks on Sunday vs. Saturday. When we walked around on Saturday the street was packed with people. We got here on Sunday around 11:30 and were surprised how quiet everything was. The same held true with the restaurant. When we walked in there were only two other tables with people. And by the time that we were ready to leave 30 minutes later we were the only ones left in the place. We were shocked as the prices here are great and the two young ladies (I sound 100 years old) that waited on us were extremely polite. And the food came out to us quickly. We’re still trying to understand where all of the people were on a beautiful Sunday just before noon. I ordered the ham and cheese omelet and my wife ordered a cheeseburger. I wouldn’t state that the food was anything special but we felt it was a great experience. You get to enjoy all of the pictures related to the old Andy Griffith show, you get food served quickly, the food is priced in an extremely affordable manner, and the service we received was friendly and timely in every way. Just what you would hope for on Main Street in “Mayberry”. We’ll be back the next time we’re in town.

“Can't beat the prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

The food was very good. My wife had a cheeseburger and thought the meat was fresh not frozen. Bacon club was great. No credit or debit cards but they let you know upfront and an ATM is around the corner. Nice small town atmosphere.
