Excellent Choice for Great Food/Drinks

My friend and I went to Billy Bob's BBQ. They have items other than bbq, but I wanted the ribs. She got the pulled pork. Both came with a choice of 2 sides. I'm a very fussy BBQ person, so I was hesitant to go. It was also my first time out with my friend, so I didn't want her... read more

Owned and operated by a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America with a passion for barbecue, the atmosphere is casual, with some country antiques hanging around. We shared a ginormous plate of nachos with chunks of brisket, slow cooked to tenderness. The nachos stuffed the four of us. We asked about sauces on the side for our chicken wings... More

I'm from the south so naturally I like BBQ. I can honestly say that this restaurant has good BBQ and the cornbread muffins are outstanding!!! The meal prices are between $15-$25 per person which is a little high for a BBQ place but the portions are easily 2 meals and we've never left there without take home boxes. We've tried... More

And not much smoke flavor coming thru. Not that it was not good - it was, but not real good. Fries - however - were very good if not excellent [as long as you like them salty]. Service good. Overall an average bbq place for the northeast, but an above average place overall.

Every time my Dad gets takeout here I don't get anything. I tried the ribs and the wings and they were disgusting. We went there to sit down and eat but the food was still horrible! Worst BBQ Ever!

My family & I went here for my birthday. We had fried pickles, buffalo wings & baby back ribs for appetizers and all were excellent. For dinner we had 3 Piggy Macs and a pulled pork quesadilla which were also outstanding. The Piggy Macs were a large bowl of pulled pork smothered with mac and cheese with bread crumbs on... More
