Lunch last Sunday

The food is great, the service is excellent and the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the quantity. We have lunch here 2 or 3 times a month. I have had nearly 40 percent of the menu items and have not had a bad meal. Soups are made fresh daily in the kitchen and are all very good

We had lunch on a Sunday at Billy Gene's while passing through Kerrville. The restaurant was recommended in a National Geographic travel book we bought several years ago. The restaurant indicates chicken fried steak is the house specialty. A plate with choice of two sides costs about $11.95. I had the chicken fried steak with whipped potatoes and gravy and... More

Great variety but they definitely need to kick it up a notch on the flavor level. Kerrville may be a " retired community" but more than half of Kerrville and surrounding areas are younger families and we want more flavor!!!! Please and thank you!
