This place serves a cup of soup with lunch, a different kind every day. Food is very good; love their grilled corned beef sandwich with swiss cheese. Also has a full bar for those who desire more than iced tea. Plenty of parking on the east side of the building. See a lot of regulars there every time I go.... More

Wonderful great fantastic food in abundance with southwestern tastes! Not a place for kids, and if you are like me and don't want kids around, that is great! Dated/honky tonk/dive bar entrance. Great service (food took a bit to get), but when it came well worth the wait.

We had a great dinner after a long day of traveling. My husband had the stacked steak. He loved it. My cousin and I had Mexican. She had the burritos, very large serving, took about 1/2 to the motel for the next day. I enjoyed chili rellanos , the best I have enjoyed in years. Worth the stop! We try... More

I was in Roswell recently and went to Billy Bob's based on the reviews here. It is a family run bar and grill that is easy to find with plenty of parking. The service was great and the Rellano Ribeye was outstanding. It actually was a lot more food than I could eat. The chef -owner came out to check... More

We didn't eat here, so I can't speak to the food. But, for what it's worth, they were the ONLY place in town to hear a live band (Last Child), and they were an excellent band. There is a dearth of live entertainment in Roswell, and if it weren't for catching this band, we would be watching bad TV at... More

We went for lunch here and were not impressed. The place itself was dark and empty. It's a bar that serves food. The staff was OK. The menu was tiny and it was mostly sandwiches. We ordered sandwiches. We got our food fairly quickly. The sandwiches were served with chips, a pickle. We do not like to eat with our... More

Thought I'd try it since the reviews were good. The $30 steak was worth $109 but that wasn't the worst part! We waited over an hour from the time we ordered. And there were few ordering meals so they were not under staffed. Will not return.

The ribeye steaks are excellent and the stuffed ribeye is amazing! They have a Karaoke stage also so bring your singing voice.
