Classic neighborhood tavern

If you are ever in the Buffalo area this place is worth checking out. Got to the Bar Bill early and although they were pretty busy lucked out with a seat at the end of the bar. I was there for a light snack and a beverage as I was going to be eating dinner later. I had heard lots... read more

Orginally from East Aurora when the Bar Bill was a place you took your chances going into. Since then, ownership changes, upgrades to restaurant, etc, have made it a really nice place to have lunch or dinner. Ate on the deck on a wonderful summer day. Three of us had the beef on weck, my wife had the fish and... More

Bar Bill has been around forever and for anyone who grew up in little East Aurora, it has always been a local favorite. When you stop back to EA, you head to Bar Bill for some local Beef on Weck. It is small so expect to wait for a table especially of your party is larger. The Beef on Weck... More

We walked around town and then shortly after 6 stopped here for dinner. It seems like a small tavern but it is one of the best in town! We were served sanwich plates that were very plentiful and especially tasty. I could hardly finish the BBQ, because there was so much. My friend indicated that the beef-on-weck was also more...

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!
