Excellent thin crust pizza, reasonable priced drinks and a warm cozy environment! The walls are lined with trophies from all over the place! Bills staff gives off a welcoming vibe great place for a family dinner.

“Good pizza, but plan to wait forever”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Been here a few times. Doesn't matter when you come, service is friendly, but very, very slow. Plan for a wait at the door, a wait after seating, and a wait after you order. If in a rush, avoid altogether. The food is fine. More of a friendly hang out for locals, than a destination spot. Nice atmosphere, but lots of peanut shells on the floor. Tables seem dirty, kind of greasy.

“Pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Bill's Pub North offers pizza, beer, peanuts, a totally informal atmosphere. The peanuts are in-the-shell which patrons push off to the floor.

The pizza is just fine and they may offer sandwiches and other foods. It is a place families can go and bigger groups can meet. I believe shirt and shoes probably fulfill the dress code.

Because the ceiling in the main seating area is so high and it has a big mountain lodge sort of theme, the noise level can become high when it gets crowded.

We don't go there very often even though geographically doable. There are other pizza places we prefer to go.

“Great pizza if you have the time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

From the basket of peanuts and shell strewn floor, to the northwoods decor and fantastic pizza, the family enjoys Bill's Pub. But the trick to making your visit most enjoyable is to come during off times. When folks visit Bill's, they stay a while. Families with little ones and large parties feel comfortable in the big open dining room where happy conversation and laughter fill the atmosphere. This can really create a long wait when you visit during prime time. Keep an eye on the hostess too. When more than one person is seating people, you may accidently get crossed off the list. The wait staff is freindly and prices are reasonable.

“Best double decker pizza.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We have been going to both Bills for years and have always enjoyed both places. The the food is always good at this one but the atmosphere is better at the original in Mundelien. My favorite item to order is the double decker three cheese pizza with sausage. Get large so you will have left overs. It is generally even better the next day so some reason. The chicken sandwich is good as well. Both places do the peanut shells on the floor thing so if anyone in your group is allergic you may have to forgo this place.
