Want a burger? Must visit City Billiards. Nothing fancy about the place, but a great place for burgers, dogs and beer! I eat here at least once every time I'm in town. I stopped in with 16 people, got bar seats, great service!

This an old time pool hall that has morphed more into a nice grill. They serve chili dogs from a chili recipe that has been around at least 50 years, and it is one of the tastiest. Their hamburgers are hand-made and come with a wide variety of add-on choices including the chili. The wait staff is a no nonsense,... More

I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich on Texas Toast and a glass of Iced tea. The tea was fine. The amount of chicken was tiny and the toast was not Texas Toast. It was just plain white bread. And, all for just over 11.00. Not a good deal.

This restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Aiken. There decor is rich woods walls and large bar. They are famous for their hamburgers and hotdogs. Although it is a bar that serves food, kids are welcome. They also have billiard tables toward the hack of the restaurant. This is a local favorite.

I went here to satisfy my craving for fried catfish! I'm originally from Louisiana, so my standards are high for this dish. City Billiards rose to the challenge and I was so pleased with everything! The fried catfish plate came with so many strips, I can't remember how many there were! It also came with 2 sides plus a side... More

City Billiards is a landmark establishment in Aiken. Although famous for their chili dogs and chili cheeseburgers, their menu goes much deeper and they offer nightly dinner specials that is far from "pub food"! One of my favorite hidden gems on the menu is their fried chicken livers - absolutely the BEST in Aiken and a over generous portion (enough... More

This is a great place for lunch with children or grandchildren. The wait staff is attentive; the food comes out hot and the burgers are really great.
