The waitresses seem to think they're doing you a favor by waiting on you...IF they decide to come by your table at all. Never again will I step foot into this restaurant. Mamacitas was a much better experience, nicer wait staff, and much bigger menu.

First time to enjoy Billie Gene's after reading it is a local favorite. We were not disappointed. The view of the Guadalupe River out the windows (also available from the patio seating once it's a bit cooler outside!) was an added amenity. We had the...More

They are Very Fast for the Quality Food they serve, but if you order when a bunch of other orders are being prepared, there will be a wait. Call for the best time to go, or go to the 'Hippie Festival', smell the air out... More
