We went here for lunch after a business meeting and was not sure what to expect. But the people were nice, the pulled pork was tasty, the amount of food was amazing and the price was cheap. I'm a bbq snob and have eaten pulled pork in Raleigh, Charleston, Nashville, Austin, and Kansas City (both), and this was pretty good.... More

Buffet always available, plus many choices on menu. Dining room recently (2011) enlarged. Friendly, home- town people with a great product to share. Buffet is $11.95 on weekend, offers more choices. Very casual, low-key place. Come here to eat your fill of barbecue.

Bill & Dave's has a great buffet with the BEST fried chicken and bbq for the BIG eaters. The also have a wonderful tender sirloin steak and shrimp dinner for those who do not go for the buffet ever time. Thanks, Bill & Dave for a great experience.

If you like bland tasteless leftovers that came out of a can, this is the place for you. Supposedly it is better on the weekends, but I doubt I give them another chance. Lettuce out of a bag, instant potatoes, and they do not even try to cover it up. Everything from the salad to dinner items and dessert ALL... More

My family & I at there because of the good reviews. They had a BBQ Buffett which sounded great, but tt was dry & expensive ($8.95). Atmosphere is not to good either. Looks like it hasn't been updated since 1970. The only thing I could say positive about this place was their dessert. But I wouldn't recommend this place.

Bill & Dave's is a family owned bar-b-q restaurant and it sure shows. From the home-cooked meal to the friendly service, Bill & Dave go out of their way to make you feel at home.

Tell City is lucky to be the home of Bill & David's Smokin BBQ. This 'hometown' winning dining spot serves BBQ Ribs that should be labeled "Best Ribs Ever Served!". There are many other offerings on the menu that could be Labeled #1. Well worth a drive from anywhere.
