My husband and I stopped in here on our anniversary trip to Fredericksburg, staying in Kerrville. It was our first time in this area, so I used tripadvisor for everything. A little bummed out about this one. We were seated quickly. The view of the river is very pretty, and we could see it even from a booth near the... More

Great place with a lovely view of the river. this place is always packed. It is well to note that this place serves comfort food. It is good for grannies and good for the babies. All are welcome here.

We had heard mostly good reviews about Billy Gene's so we decided to give it a try. To say it was disastrous would be charitable. In the interest of fairness, we had a group of about 15 people, but we had made arrangements with the restaurant well in advance and our arrival was no surprise. Three of the orders came... More

Something for everyone available here! No matter what your want Billy Gene's something for everyone in the family. This is a plus for us when we have family visiting. Grandpa wants fried foods, grand daughter is always on a diet -salad choices are great, and grandmother wants something grilled not fried...Billy Gene's is the place!

This is a very good restaurant. Home-style food with overall average prices. Very nice outdoor space overlooking the Guadalupe River.

We live in Kerrville and think Billy Gene's is probably the best eatery in our town of approx. 22,000 folks. It's situated overlooking a portion of The Guadalupe River. One lunch time we saw a bald eagle "fishing" for his lunch. Now, how good is that?? I've never had a bad meal there, you won't be disappointed.

Billie Jeans never disappoints. The food is always good; portions are large; and the food is always hot. The grilled tilapia is delicious. A great place to dine with friends, families and or groups. The service is always good, always above average. Be sure to stop in at Billie Jeans when in the area.

We have gone to many restaurants in Kerrville and for some reason we never went o Billy Gene's. Well today we discovered Billy Genes and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the visit.

We had tickets for a show in Fredericksburg (not at Rockbox), and couldn't get reservations for dinner at the Cabernet Grill. So, we settled on the next best thing. We drove the 25 miles from Burg of Fred to Ville of Kerr, and had dinner at what we consider to be the best restaurant in Kerrville. Billie Gene's has not... More
