Cramped & Long Wait

This famous eatery does have amazing food- my favorites: zeets & honey butter bbq wings- but you'll be waiting. The building is small & hard to get through. They recently built an addition out front but it's usually full.

Was leaving the Buffalo area and on a recommendation stopped at Bar-Bill Tavern to have our first Beef on Weck. This awesome sandwich was very tender beef on a bun that had caraway seeds and sea salt. We also has a side of onion rings, that were perfectly crispy and not at all greasy. The wait staff was very friendly.

So many rave about the Bar Bill. I think it's the scene, the vibe--compared to its surroundings. East Aurora is a sleepy little town. An adrenaline junkie could be driven to desperation at times (I know). So it's nice that there's a place with a little life and kind of a thriving a social scene at peak hours. And you... More

The renovation worked fine and the food is as good as ever and maybe better. The new enclosed outside area provides more space and comfort. As always don't miss the beef on weck and the wings. Friendly too!

we are certain we have passed this landmark 500 times and finally stopped in after golf in early June... certainly the cheeriest service we ever have received and the waitress pushed hard after we declined roast beef sandwiches in favor of avocado dip, personal pizzas and a mix of wings...so we went for it, a large sandwich, which they actually...

Small place but very good beef on wick. Came early and soon became crowded. Had some fries and onion rings to complete our lunch. Reasonably priced, would go again!

The hotel recommended the Bar Bill Tavern for the food. Most in our party had not tried a "Beef on Weck" sandwich. The beef portion was nothing to write home about. Not real flavorful (for my tastes). The 'weck' (kummelweck roll) on the other hand was quite flavorful. The horseradish was served on the side and not very strong, so... More

The Bar Bill is a local favorite, but has been recognized nationally recently as well. Their menu is all good, but the wings, in all the different renditions, are exceptional. They are large, well cooked- crispy if you ask, and hand sauced so they don't lay in a puddle of sauce. My fav is the spicy bar-b-que, but there are... More

The roast beef here is the thing to order. It's cooked all night in a slow roasting oven that's designed to keep the moisture contained. You get a juicy beef, perfectly cooked, each time. The wings are also fantastic here. I love the vibe and if you can get a table outside in the summer, you're in luck.
