Billy Bob's Bartenders are awful and the setup sucks. We came here on Saturday to watch concert - I expected a crowd but didn't anticipate waiting 15 minutes to get a drink at the bar. There are tons of bars but all are manned by ONE bartender and most of them have a chip on their shoulder. The one bar... More

Enjoyed the show here. It was a live event with Chris Isaak on my birthday. We had tickets that we had purchased but no way to print them. The staff was excellent in accommodating us. Once inside the ambiance of the place was awesome. The staff inside showed us to our seats immediately and once the show started the waitstaff... More

We enjoyed a visit here with our teen and her friends, while walking thru the stockyards before lunch. Enjoyed a couple of games of pool, and a dance or two. A mechanical bull, a bull riding arena and more than 1 bar, and a food court. Great souvenir shop, and only $2 a person to enter.

We went on a Thursday evening and were pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too crowded. The music was great and the staff were super nice!

Looking for some honky-tonk fun? We came here for a private party and were absolutely amazed at this place. Bars, pool tables, video games, live concert, dance floor, rodeo, food, memorabilia: it's all here under a single roof. An absolutely huge place to experience. The food I would consider average at best. Beside that, there is probably no other place... More

Billy Bob's is a must see if you're ever in the area. We used to live in Arlington, TX and would take visitors for the show and the music, if not so much for the food. It is good Texan BBQ but don't expect anything fancy. Go there for fun, entertainment, line dancing, country music and you will not be... More

Great seats for a Gary Allen concert WITH table service. I have been spoiled sitting 40 ft from performance - will be difficult to enjoy any large venue concerts again! Very affordable AND fun while waiting for the show to begin. Largest Honky Tonk is an understatement ! Definitely must visit even if not attending the intimate concert area. Great... More

We had attended the Cowtown Rodeo prior to going to Billy Bob's, and the rodeo ticket stub got us in for free. Otherwise, the cover charge is $15.00. One of those places you just need to see if you're in Fort Worth!

After attending the rodeo next door, we ended up to Billy Bob's... what a amazing place. Ok you have to understand the area. What a huuuuuge place. People serving are great, people frequenting the place are great, of course there would be some bad one. But it is so huge, that you can have a quiet chat over a drink... More

Billy Bob's is worth at least one visit. We went on a Saturday night to see Merle Haggard, and even though I'd waited til a few days prior to the show, we still got great seats. Billy Bob's is an experience I guess, and what one might expect from a honky tonk. It was super crowded the night of our... More
