Riverfront Times' Description
Summertime, the livin' is easy and Barney's half-chicken is calling your name. Only partly because it's open May through September, the converted garage that is Barney's Bar-B-Q positively screams summer. Get ribs if you want, but it's the chicken they do most right here, pink and juicy, dipped in your cupful of vinegar-based, cider-tinged barbecue sauce. Sit down at one of the red-painted picnic tables, kick off your sandals and let your feet feel the thick grass underneath. Hot fun!
Tips from foursquare
Open during the summer between Memorial Day through Labor Day, Barney's is my favorite BBQ in the metro region! This 50+ year old ribs joint smokes meat all day, and serves family-sized platters.
The beans are at their perfect late-season flavor.
