We visited this place during a trip around Texas. We actually spent the last evening of our 20 days trip in Billy Bob's Texas. The band was not bad, the place not too heavily crowded and people were dancing. The place is huge and there are interesting pictures and artifacts to look at. They also have a lot of other... More

We came here after the Rodeo as most people do it seems haha. Great cool place with heaps of bars, live music, food, pool tables, a bull ride and more. Drinks are pricey but it is a tourist spot so I geuss it's expected. Cool to see line dancing and experience a honky tonk as a tourist

My husband and I are very comfortable going to 'dives' for good live music, but we will never go here again. First, it felt like a big tourist trap. They wanted you to spend your money at every opportunity. Most of the staff seemed grumpy about being there and having to wait on us. There was a separate smoking area,... More

This place is awesome. There is a cover, I don't remember the price though. Very large, lots to do and see. Store, pool tables, games, live music, food and bull riding. There was a pretty good live band the night that we went, but the best part was the bull riding, for $3 additional fee you can get to sit... More

Have visited a couple of times with family: durning the day and once for a concert. The day trip we ate there, walked thru the gift shop, and got a picture on the "bucking bronc." The concert was good...but seating at long banquet style tables is very tight. Fun trips.

Not a fan. Most of the games either did not work or had issues, except the pool tables. As the title reads, though they have two dance floors, they typically (every time that I have been there) only use the smaller one and it is near impossible to negotiate through the spinning, bobbing, swaying, mass of dancing bodies when it...

The place is very large. There is a separate area to watch bull riding, but I believe you have to pay extra for that. I am pretty sure there is a cover charge but as I had bought concert tickets it was included so I don't know how much it is. The food area is small but the food was... More

We wanted to experience a little bit of Texas and listen to some live country music. We did this by visiting on a Friday evening and listening to a very good house band, watching some bull riding as well as catching part of a David Alan Coe concert. Watching the dancers was fun too. Great way to spend our last... More
