Common fare but uncommonly well done

I have been to Bilello's numerous times over the years and the experience is always FANTASTIC!! I always have the Meatball Po'Boy with a side of Onion Rings and a Dr Pepper. - and I'm always in Heaven! I've had tastes of other items on the menu and it's always yummy. The owner and staff is always friendly and knows... More

I couldn't place the name till I spoke with the owner. His Dad and brothers ran Bilellos in Thibadeaux which my Dad used to organize his work crews every morning, small world. The food here is great. Mostly home cooking. The owner's wife makes all the desserts. I am not a dessert person, but tried one anyway. The turtle cheesecake... More

Taking a leisurely ride, my husband and I happened unto Billello's. Service was a little slow. When we were able to get the attention of a waitress, we ordered the onion rings as an appetizer, best ever, not greasy or heavily battered. I ordered the hamburger steak with onions and mushrooms. Huge and delicious. It came with smothered sweet peas.... More

I love Bilello's cafe. I've never had anything there I didn't like. The sausage gumbo is perfect. I'm not from the area but travel here for business occasionally & I make sure I get to Bilello's cafe at least once on each trip.

This is a great locally owned restaurant in downtown Houma. It has a casual atmosphere with lots of office workers during the week. For boaters, it is within walking distance from the city marina. The address is 7913 Main St.

We are so pleased we tried Bilello's Cafe and we would have returned the next day but it is closed on Sundays. We had eaten a large lunch and wanted some Louisiana cooking but not too much for Saturday night. The menu had two different gumbos, one with chicken and sausage and one with shrimp and crab. The special soup... More

I've been here several times. Food is always great, plate lunches have never disappointed. Ambiance is great - downtown Houma in a historic building. Definitely worth a visit!
