We miss you bill's bbq. You will most be missed for your limeaide and strawberrie pie. It is sad to have lost such a richmond icon

Bills made its name with minced BBQ sandwiches and "peak of flavor pies". Although an institution in Richmond it never modernized. Still looked like a 1950s drive inn. That was why it was so good and also why it eventually failed. Places like Texas Road...More

My Dad always brought us here when we visited the grandparents (50 years ago) and we loved it. Have to have it whenever we are (rarely) in Richmond. I'm sure there is better BBQ, but I just enjoy the "memory lane" aspect of this place--and...More

A fast food chain specializing in barbecue. We were hoping to try the ribs but they were not available. Everything was very average from the food to the service. We would not return. If you want barbecue in Richmond there have to be better options.

This chain has been in Richmond for many years and serves a toned-down bbq with sides. Great slices of pies too and the limeade is the best in Richmond! Good service and great prices. Nothing fancy, but down home bbq.

Stopped at Bill's on W. Broad. Okay minced and sliced bbq but the helping was small. The fries were as bad as I have ever had - about 40 nubs, the largest fry maybe 2 inches and the worst part is they were limp and...More

The food is okay for the price. Don't expect anything big. Don't expect unlimited refills! Staff is... ummm... not too friendly to say the least. Haven't had a memorable experience in the past. Spend a little more and go to Buz & Neds down the...More
