Good food! Loved the Onion Rings!

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

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
