Was having a beer at Aurora Brew Works and came to Bar Bills for a takeout order of the chicken sandwich and chicken wings. Good thing we did takeout as there was quite a line for the place. Guy at the bar at very friendly in taking my order. The chicken wings were fantastic, get it with their homemade blue... More

Despite its recent surge in popularity (due primarily to EA becoming a destination place and various "Best this or that" prizes bestowed on the joint), Bar Bill is still, and always will be, a locals/neighborhood bar. In the old days before the addition of a few high tops and a insulated front porch seating area, it was near-impossible at times... More

This is a classic tavern and is usually quite busy. If you like a lively bar atmosphere, this is your place. If you want to grab a quick bite, go elsewhere as the wait for food can be quite long...30 minutes or more. That said, once you get your food, you should be pleased. If you are ordering bar food,...

Beef on Weck was awesome, great portions. Beer was cold, service was very friendly and efficient. Wings were very good as well. Super busy on the long weekend Saturday.

Beef on Weck is a must try and their honey BBQ wings are amazing! They don't take reservations so you can always expect a wait. They also don't take cards so make sure you have cash! If you forget, there is an ATM in the building for emergencies :)

We had lunch here this afternoon. We arrived when there were no tables available, but we were first on the waiting list. (They don't take reservations. And they don't take credit cards). After about a 15 minute wait, we were shown to our table in the busy barroom. I had a roast beef sandwich, which was good, but no better... More

Another East Aurora classic. Small tavern, get there before noon otherwise always crowded. Plan to stand or sit at bar for a drink while waiting for table. Roast beef on weck, curly fries and a beer, heaven!

The Bar Bill is now so well known that it attracts people from a large radius. It is a great bar; they serve a good pint of Guinness and the atmosphere is good. The bar menu is very limited. The beef on weck is the best thing you can order; the wings used to be the best in the area... More
