Barney's Beanery- Pasadena
99 Colorado Blvd
Barney's Beanery is a great place to watch a game, grab a beer, and get some good food. Look this isn't some gourmet restaurant. If you are expecting that, you're a moron. But for a casual, sports bar type restaurant, Barney's Beanery is great.
I ordered the Empire State Triple Decker sandwich with onion rings, $10.95. The Empire State has pastrami, corned beef, and roast beef with swiss cheese on rye bread. What a good sandwich. Now this isn't a deli style sandwich, where it's stacked with all those meats. It was more of a club sandwich where they cut the sandwich into triangles. But the meats were warm, tasty, and well worth the $10.95 price. The onion rings were crispy and huge. The perfect addition to a great sandwich.
Service was good. We went on a Sunday afternoon while the NFL games were going on. Our server was prompt and friendly. We were not lacking for anything.
I would go back to Barney's anytime. Good food, good prices, and good service. Plus tons of beers on tap makes this a good place to visit.
