My wife and I frequent Kerrville to visit her parents. We always enjoy taking them to a nice dinner or lunch. 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. The restaurant was... More

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

We had lunch in mid-October at a window table. The restaurant sits at the edge of a bluff overlooking the Guadalupe River. With the fall colors developing, we savored the peaceful view and enjoyed an excellent chicken fried steak (husband) and a huge, colorful salad plate for me. Great value, friendly, efficient service. What a great find!!

It looks like a nice place from the outside, a few steps above an average restaurant, and that impression carries over to the inside. Nice view of the river as well. Unfortunately, the service and food is quite contrary to the appearance. Service varies from mediocre to sub par, and the food is bland. The food isn't bad, but nothing... More

Billy Gene's has a diverse menu with so many good choices -- daily specials, hamburgers, salads, and don't forget the pies! Service is usually outstanding, and the prices are very reasonable. This is homestyle food done right. There is also a great view of the river (from inside or outside).

The restaurant is right on the Guadalupe River with a terrific view. The menu has all the Texas comfort food choices, even liver and onions, plus burgers, steaks and Mexican choices. Probably the most varied menu in Kerrville, with something for everyone. The food is good, and consistent, as is the service. While there's nothing over the top outstanding about... More

Nice enough manager who helped us navigate Gluten free possibilities. Nice view of the river and quite as we were there mid afternoon. Very good waitress (Desiree), went out of her way to answer questions and check with manager and chef as needed. Food was pretty good and drink refills ample. I would go to this place again.

Both the food quality and the staff friendliness were excellent. Wide variety of offerings. Wonderful setting on the Guadaloupe River. Both inside and outside dining.
