Good Food, Great Service, but Way Too Hot!

We were in Waco to meet up with some friends and thought we'd give Buzzard Billy's a go. It was a little hard to find how to get in as we weren't sure exactly where the access road was, but we did find it. We were there fairly early and the parking lot was already filling up, so it seems... read more

Loved this place. Looks like a joint on the river but many families were eating there. I had the fried shrimp.... Not healthy but tasty. Wait person was great.

Traveled to Waco for vacation to BSR. The customer service in Waco was horrible EXCEPT for the service at Buzzard Billy's. Yes the food took a little long but the waiter was excellent. He kept our drinks full and offered a complimentary salad while we waited. There were some flys but flys are everywhere at this time of year. My... More

Love this restaurant. Love feeding the turtles, ducks and fish right off off the balcony to the Brazos River. The view of the river, neon lighted bridge and Baylor University stadium is breathtaking. Yummy food to boot.

Their chicken Alfredo with a Cajun twist is delicious. Lots of other good choices including alligator. It has a full bar and about the best location in Waco.

First of all, flies everywhere. My fiancé and I went there for dinner and spent the whole time killing and chasing away flies. At least eight employees standing around could have grabbed a fly swatter or at least cleaned the nasty windows. Waiter was ok, just said he was sorry about the flies. As far as the food, it was...

Love it!! Very different but very good. Wait staff was very attentive, but not over bearing. Atmosphere is wonderful as well as the scenery. Will definitely go back!

The food was average and the service was slow probably due to the fact that the place was crowded and loud. I won't go back except during off prime hours.

On June 13, 2015, my husband and I along with another couple decided to go to Buzzard Billy's for dinner. We will not go back. The best parts of the meal were the appetizers (gator fingers and armadillo eggs) which were awesome and the blacked chicken was good. However, the service was terrible. Our waiter was sitting at table or... More
