Delicious burgers

The burger with jalapeño was excellent. The fries were crisp and fresh. The service was friendly and quick. The catfish was also ordered by one of our group and he enjoyed it very much. Excellent value for the price.

Grew up getting burgers and root beer here after church. Even after growing up this place remains my favorite for both burgers and fries.

I have several clients in Hondo & often grab a bite to eat for the ride home. Billy Bob's is a very reliable good, "home cooked" hamburger joint, but I am partial to their fried catfish. Can't say the same for their fries, though. While they appear to be fresh sliced potatoes, they are too soft & greasy for me... More

If you like Burgers, and passing through Hondo Texas, I would stop at Billy Bob's again, the heart attack was a little too much for me but it did consist of 4 patties total weight they say is 1 lb, cooked weight, I would tend to say that is CONSERVATIVE, Comes with bacon and every thing else including cheese placed...

We drove through Hondo on our way home from a Girl Scout Camp. My friend thought their Strawberry milkshake rocked. I don't usually eat onion rings- but loved theirs! The chopped BBQ sandwich was a little too sweet. She liked her Catfish. I would go back!

This Hamburger stand has been an institution in Hondo for years! The burgers are fresh and delicious! Fried catfish at a hamburger stand? You will be pleasantly surprised! Trust me!

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

This is a great place to stop with fresh, homemade hamburgers. These taste like they should with each one made fresh to order. You have to stop here on the way to and from Garner State Park or any camping in that vicinity. We time our trips so we can have lunch or dinner here. The hamburgers are soooo good... More

This was the best BBQ I'd ever had. Brilliant. Didn't matter when you got there, morning, noon or night, the BBQ was perfect. Now it's a hamburger stand serving baked meat. Pretty good hamburgers, average baked meat, but it ain't BBQ. Too bad.

We often go here after church on Sundays. Hamburgers a hot and greasy...like they should be. Best of all is the fried fish: large pieces battered in corn meal and perfectly fried. 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
