Billy Bob's is hands down the best BBQ in the Poughkeepsie area. The food is great, the menu has a wide variety of options from different meats and fish to salads which are surprisingly good in a meat-centric restaurant. They always bring a basket to the table of a selection of 4-5 different home made BBQ sauces so you can... More

How has this wonderful BBQ joint missed my radar before? Huge portions of perfectly smoked meat, generous side dishes, great service and reasonable prices make this place a winner! Not really impressive from the street but step inside and you are in a very nicely appointed dining area.......or step into the bar. Both were very accommodating and comfortable. The enormous...

This place is often crowded, but it's a good hangout for friends. I think the food is average, but the service is good. It's open late, which is nice if you want a drink and apps.

Soup was lacking... More

If you are looking for a place with atmosphere and spicy food this may suit you. If you are looking for a quiet nook for romantic conversation you may want to read this first. I went to meet someone on a Thursday evening. The atmosphere could have been romantic had it not been for the din created by the other... More
