While this place does have a great view on the back porch, the food is mediocre at best. I've had more than one dish that has tasted too dry.

The food is an average selection. Most very bland. Service is unwelcoming and downright slow. Prices are average. Over all okay place to eat, but dont plan on returning.

Billy Gene's is a great place to eat in Kerrville. Always top quality and clean. Great variety and good service. Have an outdoor porch to view the river.

We ate here with a group of about 20 and while the service was outstanding, the food was nothing special. Same old menu you see all over Texas. Salads were large and ok. Chicken fried steak was good, but not extraordinary. The wine list is horrible, but this place seems to cater more to families and those of beer tastes.... More

We went with friends on a Sunday night when most restaurants in Kerrville are closed. We were very pleased with the food, the view, and the service. My favorite is meatloaf and it was very good. Everyone else had salads and all were fresh and the ingredients were plentiful. The chopped steak salad, cooked as you like, was the big... More

I ate recently with a group of 12 and the food at Billy Gene's was fantastic. I had the country fried steak but nearly everyone in the group had something different and they all raved about how good the food was. The service was fast and friendly and accommodating our large group at a moments notice was greeted with a... More

We dined on the patio (they will let you bring your dog--and they even brought him a bowl of ice water). The view over the river is great, and there were hummingbirds at several feeders. The food was very good. The fried okra was exceptional. Very relaxing.
