Local Eats: Barney’s BBQ in Grass Lake brings simplicity and freshness

GRASS LAKE, MI — Barney’s BBQ is bringing some variety to Grass Lake.

Owners Daniel and Jenni Pratt opened the carry-out-only barbecue joint in August 2020 after closing Barney’s Family Diner in August 2019.

“It’s simpler for us to run and be able to produce high volume compared to what we were doing before,” Daniel Pratt said.

Everything is made from scratch including ketchup, barbecue sauce, buns, sides and all other sauces.

“Simple is really what we wanted to go for,” Daniel Pratt said. “Do a handful of meats and do them as best as we possibly could.”
