Always packed, kind of a wait.. But certainly well worth it. Have some patience! Literally the best wings you will ever consume in your lifetime. And the beef on weck is shaved to the temp you want right before your eyes.. It didn't get rated #1 in the country for nothing!

The best beef on weck I've ever experienced in western New York. Only downfall to this restaurant is you must pay cash. An ATM is readily available just not convenient for business travel.

We love going to Bar Bill. They have the best wings an beef in deck. Their wings come in different levels and the hot hot is HOT but great. The place is full of character and charm! Wish it was bigger but seeing the same staff over the years is awesome. We go there every summer when we are back.

One of the best you can get. Definitely worth the wait! Only surpassed by Charlie the Butcher and/or Schwabel's. Usually swamped and have to wait, but it is worth the time!

This place is one of the best bar/restaurants in western New York. It's in East Aurora which is south of Buffalo but if you are in the area you must try. It is worthy of a diners, drive-ins and dive stop: its a small bar with just A few tables on the inside and a small outdoor dining area but... More

I am not sure if they have changed owners but the beef was pretty tough. after waiting an hour for a table on a Monday night I would hope to have a great meal Next visit I will think twice about visiting again unless I hear of some kind of improvement.

What can I say. After you have the wings at Bar Bill, you will be completely spoiled from having them anywhere else. They are cooked to perfection. The flavors are so unique. You can eat inside or on their very pleasant patio. The beer selection is great too.

Atmosphere is fun and festive, even though it may be a bit crowded at times...its really part of the charm of this place. The wings are fantastic...regardless of what sauce you have on them! Try the "zeet" appetizer...a mini meat pizza sub that is very tasty. The buffalo chicken quesadilla is great if you don't want to get your fingers... More

We had to wait 15 min but well worth the wait. I had the best beef on weck. The chicken fingers were done perfect not over done. Sweet potato fries were excellent service was very good. Menu items were all under or around 10.00 lots of casual eating and great food. Will be coming back.
