I don't know why I do this to myself over and over again. Somehow I think that the food at Barney's is going to get better. But like choosing the wrong kind of man over and over again; it just doesn't
change. Bad metaphor maybe, but like a good man, a good burger is not easy to find. So when you do find a good one treasure it, respect it, and...hey wait a minute (are we talking burgers here or men?) Back to the burger. I'm not feeling that Barney's deserves
a whole lot of respect. The Specialty Burgers ($9.75) are nothing to write home about. The French (Bacon, Blue Cheese on a baguette) is just that. The burger is so plain and dry that one can hardly treasure it. So let's move on to the steak cut skinny
fries with fresh roasted garlic ($5.25) Thin fries are tossed parsley, sea salt, and fresh roasted garlic. Let's just say the garlic was the only good part! With all of the burger places in this fine city, I think I'm breaking up with you Braney's. Barney's
