Waitress was pleasant. Service was good. Nachos were a disappointment. After having them in the past. Today they skimped on the portion and there was barely any chicken. The bottom half had nothing. No cheese salsa etc on the chips. Just bare chips. No bang for the buck today. We left feeling like we got ripped off.

College hang out, relaxed atmosphere , can be noisy at time. Good and prompt service. Great food, reasonably priced. We order a whole rack with two sides, Onion rings delicious, and macaroni and cheese heavy on the cheese, yummy! The whole rack of ribs was plenty to share for two. Ribs fall of the bone, came pipping hot. Came with... More

The steak was nice well cooked but the parking is a problem during winter time they also need to give the option of preparing steaks without BBQ sauce some people don't like the source

My husband and I, along with our toddler son, came here for an early dinner after visiting the local children's museum. We have visited Texas many times and always look forward to enjoying BBQ while there. The BBQ here was definitely on par with what we enjoy in Texas. I had the brisket plate with salad and cole slaw and... More

Reading the other reviews, I had an expectation this would not be a quick lunch, and that was OK as my friend and I had some time. We arrived a little before noon on a Tuesday. Yes, there were only a few patrons in the restaurant at the time and yes, it took awhile for our meals to be served.... More

In the summer my wife and I stop here almost every Friday night after an evening golf game around the corner at Vassar Golf Course. This is a great neighborhood bar that is jovial and loud as you would expect from a barbeque joint. The food, and particularly the barbeque dishes are very, very good. We sometimes have the Nacho's... More

the chef is a CIA graduate but there is nothing above average at this restaurant. and on top of that, the food takes a long time, 40 minutes for an appetizer?! come on, thats ridiculous for a slow night.

we were seated fast. Food was a bit slow arriving but it was good. Too full to try any desserts even though they sounded good.

We love Billy Bob's. It is so hard to choose what to have because the menu has so many things we want to eat. The BBQ is wonderful! The brisket is my favorite. Tuesday is Wing Night, so we try to get there every Tuesday when wings are 50 cents each. It is a wonderful way to try different flavors.... More

I've had the food here, the barbecue isn't bad. I want to say that I am not usually a complainer, but this got me upset! It was Father's Day and I called well ahead (half hour) to order to two 1/2 chickens for my wife and I. I arrived at 7:10 to pick up my order; not ready yet. 7:20?... More
