Billy Bob's is a very lively spot for a drink; as other reviewers have pointed out, the place is massive, so expect a big crowd at the weekends if they have a decent act playing. It feels very Texan inside, and is one of the few places in DFW that I saw more people than not actually wearing Stetson hats,... More

Actually was there in April 2012. Where to start... REO Speedwagon was playing, there were a ton of bars, dancing, cowboys, rodeo, photo ops... Just so cool. We all enjoyed ourselves!

We went to this place after seeing the amazing rodeo. We happened to go on a night where Willy Nelson's son was playing, and he was fantastic. Loads of (pretty stunning) dancing going on by the locals, while us English people bopped around trying to keep up. They did fantastic margheritas! It's enormous inside, with pool tables, a few stages,... More

This place has it all. Dancing the two step, rodeo, food and drinks. There is pool tables a gift shop and photo ops. Don't go thinking you will be dancing much unless you know how to two step it. There are concerts there too. Go check it out and have a good time.

Owners should be ashamed. Innocent children witnessing excessive drinking and partying. Not comfortable going to a bar to see small children everywhere. And unattended on the dance floor many times. Disgusted. Over priced drinks too. Had no idea until I received my $158 tab for my wife and I.

Visited Billy Bob's Texas to see Robert Earl Keen in concert. They claim to be the world's largest honky tonk, but it's quite a bit too nice to be considered a honky tonk in my opinion. They are right about being large. It has a small arena inside for bull riding (shows start at 9:00.) There's a decent sized gift... More

Over priced tourist trap, go down the strip to some of the smaller bars you'll have much better time

When I first arrived I seen a long line awaiting to get in. I was surprised that I didn't wait that long, the front door guys were quick and very polite. Once we entered the concert was just about to get started. The waitress was great on getting our drinks ordered and back to us and kept our drinks full... More

While visiting Billy Bob's in Fort Worth, my kids and I had fun line dancing and shooting pool . We're from Chicago, so this country atmosphere offers something we can't get up north. We went on a Thursday to try the open line dancing lesson, which was a blast!

Let me preface by saying that I am NOT from Texas. I had also never 2-stepped before visiting Billy Bobs. My friends who were from Texas convinced me to go, and I'm very glad I did. While it was a little intimidating watching some really awesome dancers 2-step and spin like crazy, it was a blast just letting go and... More
