2. Paul’s Burrito Express

Even though this restaurant opened only a couple years ago, Paul’s Burrito Express has quickly become one of Barrington’s hit lunch and dinner spots. It offers delicious, authentic Mexican food at an affordable price in a relaxed atmosphere.

3. Deer Park Century Theatres

For younger teens who can’t drive, this movie theater is conveniently located in Deer Park Town Center right by Noodles & Company and Coldstone Creamery. It’s great for kids because students get movie tickets for only $7.75, which is cheaper than most surrounding theaters.

4. Blue Cherry Frozen Yogurt

The frozen yogurt craze that’s taking over the US is hitting Barrington too! Blue Cherry is the only frozen yogurt place located in downtown Barrington. Its self-serve frozen yogurt and toppings bar make it a popular place for teens to eat and hang out.

Whether playing sports games on the turf, running on the track or cheering in the student section at football games, the BHS stadium is a significant part of BHS students’ lives. Its exciting atmosphere makes it a great place for kids to socialize or compete.
