This is one of the best local spots in San Clemente to get a sandwich or other local items. I would recommend to locals and visitors alike.

Had lunch here during our vacation. The soup and sandwich was excellent and we loved the little outdoor seating area. The staff will do what it takes to ensure you get what you want and have a good experience there.

Great spot for a delicious sandwich. VERY casual. Eat in the courtyard or take your lunch to go to the pier, beach or people watching on a bench along Avenida Del Mar.

Great place to pick up sandwiches on your way to the pier and beach. Large deli meat selections with salads. Take out only. They are my go to butcher for fresh seafood and meats.

Been eating at Billy's for years. It is an old school deli. With a meat and fish counter, sandwich bar, fresh sides, great desserts and wonderful staff. All of the meats are high quality, as well as the cheeses. The bread is always fresh and the sides are always great. Good single bottle beer selection as well. Other than the... More

Billy's is really just a butcher shop that slices the meat and puts sandwiches together. A bit pricey but the sandwiches are good (though you could make your own for much cheaper with the same meat and toppings).

We enjoyed deli-made sandwiches and soup at their outdoor tables. They have a daily special: half sandwich and small soup, perfect portion for us. Deli options were very extensive, including housemade meatballs, meatloaf and salads. The soups were obviously housemade as well. Gazpacho, Chicken Tortilla soup were seasoned perfectly and the Tortilla soup full of veg and Chicken. French dip... More

Billy's reminds you of a local market combined with a great deli. They make several fresh salads and entrees daily, along with the best custom sandwiches you can get. They also offer various desserts along with the staples that a neighborhood market would carry. This place is a throwback to another time and I love it.

This "deli" restaurant was a completely 180 degrees from our usual...NO wait staff..seating outside in the Spanish courtyard, which is shared with one up-scale bar/restaurant. Food is not your usual Subway....I recommend the half sandwich with small bowl of soup or chili...the bowl of chili is a meal itself. Just tell them how you want the sandwich made...they can do...
