I thought when they had deli sandwiches on the menu, that I could order a grilled ham and cheese. Only after we were served did I realize I ordered off the menu. But it was delicious and just what I wanted at that moment. My lunch mates also ordered sandwiches, but theirs were on the menu. There is a very... More

Billy Gene's is my favorite restaurant in Kerrville, and tonight's dinner reaffirmed that sentiment. The good people there take relatively simple recipes, and execute them to perfection. The offerings can only be described as good ole American comfort food, but it is prepared as if it was the best cuisine on the continent. That chocolate layered pie afterwards was, how... More

This is a good restaurant if you are looking for no frills home cooking. I've been several times and the food is always average.

The food was delicious! I had the sausage and my wife had the veggie plate. Service was a little slow, they were busy. Awesome view of the sunset over the lake from your seat in the restaurant or on the patio. Didn't have the deserts, but they looked good also.

We have been eating at Billie Genes for several years and have never been disappointed. Chicken fried steaks are always good along with the various side dishes. Wife had the Saltillo chicken and was pleased although the chicken breast was rather small. Service was good and attentive. Prices are reasonable. We will definitely include BGs in future Kerrville visits.

Went with another couple based on their recommendation. It started well, seated promptly with a good view of the river from our table. Received our drinks, some rolls and had to ask for additional butter. Had to ask again two more times before the server brought it. I tried the chicken fried steak, my wife ordered the hot iron steak.... More

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
