Great food and service!

We visited during March Madness, the place was packed but the service was spot on. We ordered the Nachos, and decided to order the cheese on the side in case it was too spicy for my dining companion. Cheese was great, but the nacho pile was HUGE so it was a lucky thing we did because we were able... read more

On a friend's recommendation, we went for lunch yesterday and fell in love!!! We will definitely be back and bring family and friend's!!

My husband's steak was cooked medium... More

We go to Billy Barooz four to six times a year and have never had a bad meal. The burgers and other entrees are all pretty good. The menu has just enough variety to please anyone, without being so huge that food quality suffers. One of my favorites is the seared ahi tuna. Big portions and cooked to rare perfection.... More

We met our family here for lunch before heading to the pumpkin patch nearby. Everyone's food was very good! Chicken Parm, chicken cordon bleu sandwiches and yummy sweet potato fries!! Mmmm! Prices were average for eating out- a bit higher than average for lunch but they were dinner size portions. Nice big specials list though that was very reasonable ($8-12).... More

I was eager to try Billy Barooz, since it is relatively new. My verdict is "underwhelming". It offers a clean vibrant atmosphere, undoubtedly a result of its location in a newer development. The limited beer offerings, uncreative menu, and loud, cold environment, however, make it simply a place to go. This is not a destination on its own, but is... More

We go here sometimes. The menu is good. Service is always kinda slow. The burgers suck because they're pre-formed hockey pucks of beef, not house made. Drinks are pretty good and there's a nice big bar.

I meet friends here every time I am in Champaign. The food is good, but the drinks and food prices seem a little pricey.
