Yes the beloved columnist used to frequent this burger joint. And his namesake burger is still on the menu. And here lies the problem. This place needs a major scrub down and and a staff overhaul. It's stuck in the 70's. The burgers are still...More

Just a refreshing "walk in off the street" restaurant. Nothing fancy. Good food; American Menu, ample servings, friendly service, reasonable prices. Certainly better than any fast food joint! If you're in the neighborhood, give them a try.

This was my best hamburger place 30 years ago. But is not the same anymore. Very sad to see a old restaurant going downhill.

We had a great burger there and a Dreyer's Black and White Shake. The staff was great and so was the service. It was about 25 blocks from Lands End toward town. It has been operating since 1959. What a great find.

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon for a quick burger and beer. Everything I'd heard about Bill's was true. Just a great, funky spot. The meat was fresh, and the fries cut in house. Great selection to choose from.

Happened upon this retro burger joint. Great burger from the open grill , the hand cut fries and the shakes blended the "old way". Couldn't ask for better service or better food!!
