"Barkadas is a nice little restaurant with a very cool atmosphere, relaxed setting, and beautiful bar. We ordered take out using their online ordering site, and the process was pretty seamless. The service allows you to customize pretty much anything on your order to make it just how you like it.
We got their cheesesteak sandwiches today, and the flavor of the meat was excellent, very cheesy, and the toasted bread added a great texture. As side orders, we got the Hawaiian fries and sweet chili wings. The fries had tons of flavors, with grilled spam, tomatoes, cheese and sauce. The wings were perfectly cooked and the sauce was an excellent compliment.
Definitely give Barkadas a try, you're sure to find something there that you'll enjoy. Their flavor fusions are excellent."

"My family and I have dined in and gotten take out from Barkadas and have enjoyed everything we've eaten. Appetizers, sandwiches, desserts and beef/noodle bowls have all been delicious. The restaurant itself has a clean and open look and staff were very friendly and quick with their service when we visited. The Filipino inspired cuisine is great when you're looking for something different and the sandwiches and appetizers offer a great option for those looking for more traditional items like burgers or cheese steaks. I would highly recommend!"
"Barkadas is a great restaurant in Charleston, WV. They're located on Cantley Drive, right beside the Domino's Pizza. The restaurant is just a short drive away from areas like Southridge, South Hills, downtown Charleston, and Charleston's West Side. They don't have a huge footprint, but there is a decent-sized indoor dining room and some outdoor seating.
As their website says, their food is a blend of American and Filipino flavors. I've tried many of their menu items, including: the crispy shrimp bao buns, pickle-brined chicken sandwich, Fili steak sandwich, Ahi tuna bowl, crispy spam burrito, and veggie spring rolls. I haven't had a bad thing off of their menu and highly recommend that people try them - especially for brunch!"

"Adding Barkadas to our required dinner spots when visiting Charleston. We had a fantastic dinner here last night, sampling a few appetizers and bao buns. I had the Chicken Karaage buns, and gochujang aioli was a perfect flavor with the right amount of heat to the perfectly crispy chicken. The lumpia was great, and the flip bar fries were amazing. They have a great wine list and plenty of drink selections."

Reason I’m messaging you is because I want to praise one of your employees. People are quick to point out the bad in people, but I believe in letting folks know when | have a great experience. Jim and I ordered from Barkadas on Saturday night. From the moment this young man took our order to picking it up, he gave nothing but excellent service. Darius has great phone skills and in person communication Skills. I sat at the bar and had a glass of wine while I waited on our order. He is very polite and personable. I’m sure he has regular customers, he now has another regular. Great hire!

Wow what a great experience! Darius was an incredible server and was truly on point! The atmosphere is contemporary and clean with agreeable and upbeat music. Nice place to go on a date! Very good drinks and let's talk about the food! I was not prepared for how good the food was going to be! The nachos were incredible and the Fili Cheese Steak is a must have! On top of it all, reasonably priced?! I am from Pittsburgh and I wish I lived closer but will definitely be stopping on my way to Hatfield every time from here on out!

Nice atmosphere, food is really good, reasonably priced, good drinks and drink prices are not off the chart like other places on the hill. The ahi tuna bowl is really good. Chips are homemade and are really tasty also.

Ordered food for a production team of 12 to go. Everything was labeled correctly and I received my entire order. That's a lot harder than it sounds! Food was amazing!!

We stopped here on the way home to NC, and we are so glad we did. Ashley was our server and she was incredibly kind and helpful with navigating the menu. We ordered the pork spring rolls and they came out crispy, and full of flavor. I ordered the pork belly bao buns, and the crispy avocado bao buns. They were both phenomenal, melt in your mouth goodness. My boyfriend ordered the pork belly over pancit noodles and he finished the whole bowl. Ashley recommended the bread putting and we decided to get it, due to how delicious the rest of the food was, and it did not let us down. It had some yummy bourbon, whipped cream, and mango sauce and was just an absolute perfect way to end the night. I wish we lived closer so we could come back.

Great neighborhood place for takeout or in-person dining. Warm and cozy. During Covid-19, Erin and I grab bowls to go. Asian fusion with Philippine and Mexican influences. It decent small bar.

Excellent food and impeccable service from the staff. We have been here a number of times and have been blown away by how good the food is. The SOB bar fries are probably some of the best cheese fries I have ever had.
