If you're coming to Billy Bob's, do plan to dance and drink, but avoid the "honky tonk kitchen" at all costs. Our burgers and fries came out wrong and tasted wrong as well. We were both a little sick after eating them. We also weren't happy that we were made to pay a cover charge, only to find out later... More

It was Easter Sunday and rather overcast so it was quiet. We paid our $2 per person entrance fee. The guy at the door was so unenthusiastic about his job it was sad. No beer on tap only bottles. It's been a long time I have been in a bar where smoking was permitted. We had a beer and then... More

Spent the evening there with girlfriends, took in the bull riding show for $3- totally worth it! Also saw a concert (REO Speedwagon)- great place for a show. We bought the standing room tickets for $20 and stood right on the side of the stage, only a few tables of seated people were closer then us and they paid $40.

If you are ever in Fort Worth you need to make a trip to Billy Bob's. My husband and I went to see Johnny Lee and it was the highlight of our trip. We danced, drank, and danced some more. It's a great atmosphere and lots of fun people. Be prepared for a large crowd. It's a popular place.

We don't drink but we like music so from time to time we find ourselves here for concerts. The venue is always packed which means the acts are always good but it does make it difficult to move around. If you have mobility issues this is probably not something you want to take on unless you can just sit down... More

It was a great experience at night to watch the live bands and get on the dance floor. The food was reasonable and drinks was not too expensive had a great time there.

We were there last night and wanted to buy some t-shirts. The shirts in the store had stickers on them saying "designed and printed in the USA" with an American flag. Upon further inspection we discovered that the shirt was made in China. Really? You're located in the heart of America and you're selling crap made in China just like... More

I wouldn't really see another concert at Billy Bob's, if I ever did it would be general admission and not assigned seating. You just can't see anything! The supposed "good" seating is on the floor in front of the stage. Its like banquet style seating on what was once the largest dance floor there, so they try to fit 8-10... More

Great place to see music if you have a seat. I have seen some great shows here. Standing on the side in GA is not good unless you just want to be in the room. If visiting you need to check it out.

We weren't able to go to Billy Bob's at night, but it was worth it going in during the day. It's kind of like a museum of the musicians who have played there. The world's largest belt buckle is there too. There is a lot to see as you wander around the bar, and there is a good gift shop... More
