We went here while visiting Kerrville for a bike ride. The food was very tasty and the service was outstanding, especially Destinee. We never had to wait on refills for anything. I had the mushroom swiss burger and it was fantastic. If you like them on Facebook, you will receive free chips and salsa. The rest of our party said... More

We grabbed a quick lunch in Kerrville recently and were delighted to discover Billy Gene's. Comfortable booths and tables overlooking the river, some outside. Varied menu with the usual burgers and sandwiches plus veggies and hearty items. One server in our area was doing the job of three people--taking orders, serving and bussing tables. Even if you resist ordering the... More

Billy Gene's is fine for what it is — another good restaurant along the Guadalupe River. I guess we thought from the ads that it would be a little more upscale, but it's really not. Of course, you can't fault a restaurant for not meeting your mental image of it. Like I said, the food is just fine, as is... More

Sitting high above the Guadalupe River in the Hill Country town of Kerrville, Billy Gene's features good down-home cooking at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is friendly. One can sit inside or dine on the veranda overlooking the scenic Guadalupe River. The menu offers a large selection of Texas homestyle cooking. The country-fried steak was... More

I've been a customer since they opened in Kerrville - service and food quality at time can be less than average to down right poor. But on my visit on 6/8/2014 everything was great. The server was attentive and timely. The food was excellent prepared and the portions were amble. Because I am not a weekly diner at Billy Gene's... More

The homestyle food is good, the service is typically quite fine. The desserts are better than average. It is locally owned and operated. But I have a once a month business meeting in which we order off the menu and it becomes a bit boring and standard over time.

American comfort food. Great prices, large portions. I love the Texan salad. They have great daily specials. Nice view from the back porch for dining. Try the pecan cobbler a la mode.

We are locals and this is one of our favorite places to go. Laid back Hill Country atmosphere, friendly people and consistently good food and a great view of the river too! Try their guacamole burger, the jalapeno bun is so delicious my husband orders it on the other hamburgers as well:-) Most items are big enough to split, just... More
