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

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.
