Love the Bar Bill

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... read 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

We stopped on our way home from Buffalo and had wings, beef on weck and some Jalapeno poppers. Everything was cooked perfectly. Sat a the bar and watched the woman make the sandwiches to order. Everyone (customers and wait staff) was very friendly. Small parking lot, but was able to find a place.

Had heard about how great the food was, specifically the wings, so I had to give it a try. It was busy, I believe we went on a Friday, so it was packed. They have a lot of regulars. Fair warning, Bar Bill is cash only. They have an ATM in the bar just in case. The wings themselves were... More

This is a great bar - good music, great bar food (outstanding wings), and it was really bustling on a Tuesday night. Bring cash since they don't take credit cards. You will enjoy it and kick back at this fun spot

Great little bar that's been in East Aurora since the beginning of time. Recently under new ownership that has taken it to the next level. MUCH friendlier employees!!! Specialty is wings and beef on weck. You can't go wrong with either, plus they are staples of Buffalo food. Great selection of beers, a fun place to go with friends or... More

Great small bar atmosphere. Good friendly service, which I have always found to be rapid enough. Wings are stuff of legend; some witchcraft makes then the best, its just chicken and pepper sauce, but they do something to it. Beef on Weck is great too, the meat is carved to order, very good. They may well do other food, but... More

The Bar Bill has always been known for its chicken wings and beef on weck and is always busy. The new winterized deck allows for more seating which is great. When is the last time a restaurant has turned you down for a take out order. That's how busy they are. Its a casual restaurant and I would highly recommend... More

On our yearly trip to Buffalo this time of year we make Bar Bills our first stop and enjoy lunch there. The choice is always their " Beef on Weck " which never disappoints us. They recently added a front glassed in room which was needed as it was rather small and waiting for a table was norm. The staff... More
