Bill's is, by a considerable margin, the best of the BBQ places in Kerrville, and at times, one of the best in the Hill Country, period. When they are spot on, the brisket is as good as almost any in Texas. Problem is, we've noticed a degree of inconsistency. It's never worse than 'very good', and we've certainly never experienced...

Once I found the place, I knew I was at the right stop for lunch. The smell in the smoking area was outstanding. I had the combo plate with brisket and sausage. The sausage was good, but the brisket was outstanding. It was juicy moist and fall apart tender. The beans were also quite good. I talked with the pit... More

Tried all three BBQ places in town and Bills was the best. Nice people made you feel welcome in a down home way. Not as good as you will get in Austin or Lockhart but was much better than the other two places.

This is one of the small, hole-in-the wall BBQ joints you look for. I was very hopeful when I saw the multiple smokers outside and smelled the aroma of smoldering oak. I ordered the brisket, which was moist and tender. I was surprised that it didn't have more smoke flavor than it did, but it was still good. You help... More

Bill's is a regular stop for us - there's simply isn't a better BBQ joint in Kerr County - when it comes to high quality BBQ meats, service and value, Bill's is in a class all by itself. Tonight we ordered brisket, ribs and pulled-pork. All were cooked to perfection with a beautiful smoke flavor and all were still very... More

This is a classic Texas BBQ joint; you walk by the smokers on the way in, you are greeted by the same folks always, the meat is sliced right in front of you, and it is always excellent. Just the smell walking up is enough to let you know this is the real deal. It's an unassuming place, which is... More

Hands down the best B-B-Q in the area. The building isn't fancy but the friendly staff and superb food make up for it.

Bills is our local go to BBQ. Never had a meal that wasn't good or ran across a staff member that wasn't nice.

Bill's has the best BBQ! We had chopped brisket sandwiches today and they were delicious! So much, we bought a pound of chopped brisket to go! We ate in the dining room and it was very pleasant. It is not fancy, but it is clean! The tables were spotless, floors were clean and just a nice place to have some... More

Do not care at all about dining inside, it looks nasty, they need a better routine for cleaning the floors, tables and bathrooms. You could open and close sections, and if I wanted flies all around my food I would eat outside.
