On October 10th I went to lunch with my mom at Barney's Diner. I've always wanted to eat there. Barney's is in a tiny building located on the corner of Sierra Madre and Las Animas, and I'm pretty sure it's been there for generations. I am a huge fan of diners and greasy spoon-type restaurants but I didn't know my mom even knew about this place, so I was shocked when she suggested it! It was just like I thought it would be: comfortably worn down, with tasty food, flourescent lighting and a waitress that calls you Hon. There were a lot of very elderly patrons dining there and the waitresses knew all their names, so they must have a lot of regulars at Barney's. I think I'll join them more often.
The menu at Barney's is pretty much what you'd expect it to be. If you're a vegetarian, I don't think this is the place for you! I had the biscuits and gravy. Couldn't finish it.
We found out that Barney's doesn't take credit or debit cards. We had to dig through our purses and the console of my car to come up with enough cash for the meal and tip! Good thing Barney's is cheap!
