Supper after a long travel day

We had talapia and chicken fried steak. Both were good choices for us. The okra & grilled veggies were not the best I've had, but not bad. Loved the view of the water, and the sweet girl waiting on us was precious. This was the number 1 place recommended to us by the owners of the KOA!

This is a great restaurant with an incredible view of the river. We eat there more than anywhere else in town because the food is good, consistent, and affordable.

I had the chicken fried steak with baked sweet potato, had no problem and my meal was very good. My husband had the hamburger steak and baked potato. He didn't like the steak because it tasted like liver and he hates liver. Don't think they should cook the hamburger steak on the same grill as they cook the liver. The... More

Hadn't been to this restaurant and since the location is good and the architecture outside is nice, decided to try it. They have this wow location looking over the Gudalupe River and are not taking advantage of itl Inside was disappointing because went with friends and wanted to impress them and that didn't happen. The decor is old and sort... More

Good service, great view of the river on the back patio and food was ok. I had the catfish with a side of chili and both were way to salty to finish. Our family also had the meatloaf, quesadilla and chicken which were good but nothing to rave over. A little disappointing considering we didn't have time to try any... More

Our hotel suggested Billy Gene's as one of the best in town......so off we went. It happened to be a birthday celebration and certainly didn't disappoint. A nice warm early spring March day in the high 70's, we were able to sit on the river side outside. Very picturesque and peaceful. BG's has an extensive selection ranging from steaks to... More
