Perfect BBQ

Nice and friendly staff. Awesome atmosphere. Friends, couples, families. Huge portions to share. Excellent BBQ. So far, the best american meal in our trip by the Hudson Valley.

We have visited this establishment at least once a month over the past year, and have yet to be disappointed. The food is excellent, and the atmosphere is perfect for watching a game. It can get very loud at times. Seems that they have a very loyal local customer base. Prices are very reasonable. Ribs are the best in the... More

Atmosphere is bustling & loud, about what you'd expect from a place like this. There was a 15-20 min wait for a table but it was saturday night and they were very apologetic. Once seated, service was fast and the waitress seemed to come and ask if we needed anything at exactly the right times. The rack of ribs was... More

If you like BBQ you'll love this place. Been here several times and there's not one thing on the menu that is bad. Order anything and you'll be happy, but bring an appetite because the amount of food is plentiful. If you want leftovers for a late night snack, order the piggy mac. Great place.

My wife and I went to dinner here on a Friday night. We enjoyed the Boom Boom Shrimp appetizer which was excellent. I enjoyed the El Cubano while my wife had the single build your own burger with toppings which was alot for her. Service was very good and it was a pleasant dinner...

I felt like eating ribs and had never been to Billy Bob's though I drive by it multiple times a week. Our Family of four made the visit today. We were seated right away as there were several tables open. Our orders were taken smoothly and we waited perhaps 12 minutes for our meals to arrive. My ribs were delicious... More

Amazing BBQ. Try the Piggy Mac...if you're not concerned with weight gain:) Sliders and wings are great too. Fun atmosphere and drink specials. Best BBQ in the tri-county area.

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... 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
