Billy Bob's sells BBQ and hamburgers that are delicious. But the best thing on the menu is the catfish. It is cooked in a cornmeal batter that is light and crispy. Served with French fries, coleslaw and a green onion, it is the best anywhere! No exaggeration - their catfish is simply perfect. Enjoy it with a tall glass of... More

Good sides and tartar sauce. Homey atmosphere with picnic tables that welcome lots of carving and grafitti. Only four stars because the front door is rediculously dirty and... More

We stopped here on our way back to Houston and picked up some burgers. We stepped inside to check it out and freshen up, got our burgers to go. The wait staff was very friendly and the burgers were awesome! I had a cheeseburger & my boyfriend had the avocado burger (but really it was guacamole). They were not very... More
