True Texas BBQ

My brother and I were on a motorcycle trip from Indiana. We wanted some authentic Texas BBQ... and we got it. This is a small, older building that honestly doesn't look like much. Don't be deceived. The people there were extremely nice and made us feel right at home. The inside was older, but clean... read more

So, we were hungry, and the plan had been to go up to Hunt and get burgers at Rio Rancho #2, but we couldn't wait that long. We had passed Bill's numerous times, and finally stopped. Family owned, wonderful pits with outdoor seating, and the inside of the building can only be described as classic Texana. Photos cover the walls,... More

My husband and I got chicken and brisket here to take home. Both were extremely dry and overcooked. I won't go back unless it is to try their barbequed cabrito.

Good brisket, both sliced and chopped sandwiches were really good! The family-owned facility could use a little sprucing up, but the food was good and the staff friendly!

Had a large party, they were notified over a week in advance that we would have 10 people. This line was incredibly slow, because there was only 2 of them. and it seemed that only the woman cutting the meat could do anything with food as the woman behind the register simply stood there. She stood there and there was... More

Texas has BBQ joints everywhere. Bu.t this place is just plain good. The brisket is tender and mouth watering.

I am a BBQ fanatic and Bill's has the market cornered on brisket and pork. Absolutely the tenderest, juiciest, most delicious I have had anywhere. The cabrito on Saturday is also very good, but the ribs were not quiet up to the standards set by the brisket and pork. Sides are pretty much standard fare, EXCEPT for the salt dill... More

Good old fashioned TEXAS Barbecue. Sweet people & servers. Decent price....which is a plus considering the cost of other BBQ places around town... most are expensive - Bill's is much more reasonable.

Excellent brisket. Very tender! Tasty potato salad. Good tea! Expensive desserts. $4 for a slice of pie. We by-passed dessert and went somewhere else for ice cream. Friendly atmosphere.
